Keeping with the A-Z Blogging Challenge hosted at Tossing it Out. Today is B and I've found a book giveaway competition for you! Steph Su Reads is giving away a copy of the new book Birthmarked by Caragh O'Brien. This comp is open internationally.
But wait, there's more! In Which a Girl Reads is also hosting an international book giveaway (means us Aussies can enter too!), this is to celebrate gaining a whopping 600 followers! (can you hear the jealousy in my voice?). Check it out:
I'm choosing my favourite books on writing and once I hit the 100 followers (I know that's a long way off 600 - but I'm still thrilled), I'll have a book giveaway too - looks like that won't be long now :-)
B is also for blogging. I currently maintain this site and one on education and teaching English, The Write Words (I also have one for Dog Show Detective aimed at kids). Now my 9yr. old and my 12yr. old daughters have decided they would like a blog too, they would like to blog on book reviews and of course they have no interest in sharing a single blog. Sigh. This is going to be just like the kitten and the rabbit and the puppy - I know who will end up having to do most of the work.
I am happy they are showing an interest and they were both amazing during NaNoWriMo, each ending up with their own novelette. I told them I would get the book printed and bound for them like a professional book (perfect Christmas present for Grandma!) and now Miss 9 wants to know when it will be in the stores. A little budding writer-wanting-publication in the making!
