Announcing the Summer Giveaway Hop – Sign Ups Are Open!

Summer Giveaway Hop 
Co-Hosted by Mary from BookHounds & Forever Young (adult).

August 1st to 7th: http://iamareadernotawriter.blogspot.com/p/giveaway-hop_17.html

What is a giveaway hop?
Simple – Each participating blog hosts a giveaway and then we link up together allowing our followers to hop easily from one giveaway to another. 
For followers this means lots of chances to win free books.
For blogs hosting a giveaway it means lots of new visitors.
It’s a win-win!

Each participating blog will host their own giveaway. There is no requirement on the minimum or maximum value of your giveaway. It’s up to you to decide. You can give away books, swags, amazon gift cards, or anything else you can think of that has to do with books. Your giveaway can be as simple or as elaborate as you want. 

All participating blogs will be linked up through a Giveaway linky. 
Please keep the process to enter your giveaway as simple as possible. 
Please no long lists of dozens of different things followers can do to gain extra entries. 

As you prepare your giveaway post please remember the following:

1. The Summer Hop Images needs to be part of your post. 

2. Include the linky list with all the participating blogs at the end of your post OR link to the giveaway hop page: http://iamareadernotawriter.blogspot.com/p/giveaway-hop_17.html

3. Giveaway must be book related!

4. Keep the way to enter your giveaway as simple as possible. 1 Mandatory entry and no more than 5 optional extra entries.
