LDS Authors Giveaway Hop – Featuring Books by LDS Authors

Announcing the LDS Authors Giveaway Hop

Featuring Books Written by LDS Authors
Hosted by I Am A Reader, Not A Writer & The Book Bug
May 11th to 17th

You need not be an author to participate, any family friendly site is welcome to join the hop and host a giveaway for a book by an LDS author.

With today’s announcement of The Whitney Award Finalists and a comment from Lexie at The Book Bug I was motivated to put together an LDS Authors Giveaway Hop.

My hope with this hop is to bring some of the wonderful LDS authors and their fabulous books on to your radar.

You might be surprised by how many popular mainstream books are written by LDS authors. Shannon Hale, Orson Scott Card, Janette Rallison, Brandon Sanderson, Brandon Mull, James Dashner, Ally Condie, Stephenie Meyer, Bree Despain, Jessica Day George, Aprilynne Pike, Kiersten White, Robison Wells, Jason Wright, Heather Dixon, Obert Skye, Richard Paul Evans, Julie Berry, Mette Ivie Harrison, Becca Fitzpatrick, Lisa Mangum, Amber Argyle, Jennifer Laurens, Brodi Ashton… the list could go on and on.

In addition to these well know LDS authors there are dozens of amazing LDS authors who you may not yet have heard of.
