First Book Giveaway!!!! and Weekly Geeks #13



I thought I would give Weekly Geeks a try this week...it looked fun! It gave a few options as to what to do, but centered around authors. I chose to post photos of some of my favorite authors. Do you know any of these authors??

At the same time....I've decided to have my first book GIVEAWAY!!! The ARC book will be So Long at the Fair: A Novel

Here are the rules:

1. Leave a comment about your favorite author and book they wrote and you get one entry (or just leave a comment).

2. If you post this contest on your blog/website, post your link in comments and get an additional entry.

3. US and Canada residents can win!

4. Please leave your blog/web address or email in comments so I can contact the winner.

5. Contest ends: August 15th 6pm CT.

Update: had to change the rules a bit...realized once someone wrote answers..everyone would know!!

Hey Allison! I'd like to think I'm really knowledgeable about authors, but I have to make a confession. When I put my cursor over the photos, their names pop up! So I'm assuming that's the case for anyone else looking too. So I could list them, but it would technically be cheating...
But can I enter anyway, somehow? I have this book on my wishlist! :')

Ok...since after doing this "I" realized to from another blog that you can put the cursor over the pic and see link name and if you make it the authors name...well then..hahaha!! So, I did change the links so u can't tell who they are..but I decided to change to rules a bit..just leave a comment about your favorite author for one entry and link this contest on your blog for another entry....

Guess we all learn from our first times at this!! LOL...

idygo88 ...you will get one entry...and if u link..another!

I promise I didn't cheat, Allison. I'm not sure who my favorite author is, but Adriana Trigiani. She is from southwestern Virginia and her Big Stone Gap novels capture the dialect perfectly.

Allison said...

You are fine! It just didn't dawn on me that it did that!! All is cool!
I checked out that Big Stone Gap series...THX..now I have MORE on my wishlist of books!

One of my favorite authors is Sharon Kay Penman. What can I say . . . her novels bring history to life. She makes me wish I knew these people. Sometimes I fall in love with men who have been dead for centuries! (?TMI?)

It's too difficult for me to choose a favorite author. I'd struggle with even choosing a top five or ten.

Thanks for the giveaway, Allison. I'd love to win. I blogged about it HERE.

Picking just one author is hard, but one of my favorites is Anne McCaffrey. I love her Pern books, but I think my all time favorite of hers is "Crystal Singer" because I love music so much.

I am a huge Alice Hoffman fan, but I could never pick just one book. Please enter me in this contest. I have posted about it HERE.
