Lucky Leprechaun Giveaway Hop March 17th to 20th


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 Country
is 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.

How To Win
Each person who comments and leaves an email address on my blog expressing a desire for a copy of The Dawn Country will be entered to win one of three copies. Each comment will be assigned a number based on the order the comment was received. The numbers will be input at www.random.org to determine the winner. The winner will be notified by email and will need to provide a physical address for shipment of the book. If there is no response from the winner in 48 hours, another winner will be chosen. The winner will be announced on Pick of the Literate and Azure Dwarf.

Comment below or drop by, read the review expected to be posted on March 18th, make your comment and sit back and hope you win. I hope to have an interview with the Gears and a guest post so comments there will also be entered into the contest. Contest began Feb. 23rd 2011 and ends March 31, 2011 midnight east coast time, the publicist will ship the prizes to the winner. Winners will be contacted by email and will need to email me back with their shipping address. Please no PO boxes, physical address will be needed for shipping.
