Ok, I admit I am new to blog hops so bear with me. A blog hop is when a bunch of bloggers come together to share a common goal and in this case to give away books. Why do we give away books? I can’t answer for everyone but I do it to build traffic on my blogs. I also love books and when publishers provide me with books to give away it enables me to share the love. I know that sounds sappy but I get a good feeling giving books away particularly books that I enjoyed. I’m not sure paying it forward is applicable but giving just feels good. So enough personal philosophy how do you win a book and what book am I giving?
The Dawn Countryis People of the Longhouse, bestselling authors and archeologists Kathleen O’Neal Gear and W. Michael Gear’s second book in their newest series. The Dawn Country is the Gears’ 50th published novel. Some of the Gear books I have enjoyed are the Forbidden Borders series #1 Requiem for Conqueror, Forbidden Borders #2 Relic of Empire, and Forbidden Borders #3 Counter Measures. Another great Gear Series is The Spider Series, The Warriors of Spider #1,,The Way of the Spider #2 and Web of Spider #3. I also really enjoyed Starstrike and The Artifact.
I have three copies of The Dawn Country to give away and there are no shipping restrictions. The publisher said they will ship anywhere.
