Capital Letters and Confetti (aka First Blogaversary and Giveaway!)

 

party timeHello there all my lovely readers!

The title pretty much says it all, but just in case you missed it: MY BLOG HAS OFFICIALLY BEEN AROUND FOR ONE YEAR AS OF TODAY! So yeah… that happened, I actually passed the One Year mark! That’s awesome! (Does this mean I’m now officially out of the newbie phase?)

You might or might now have seen my tweets about all the plotting I’ve been doing. Cause I’ve been plotting and scheming for about month, contacting publishers and authors and with their help I managed to come up with an awesome giveaway (If I do say so myself). It’s been killing me to keep my mouth shut about all the goodies I am getting to give away today, so I am forever grateful that March 10th is finally here and I can blab away!

And what is a party without cake? Because everybody loves cake! So I’m handing out free virtual cake for everyone! Be sure to grab yourself a piece before it’s gone *wink*

Anyways, I have a few things up for grabs today. And I want to thank all authors and publishers for adding something to this giveaway! I don’t have the money to put a giveaway like this together on my own. AUTHORS REALLY ARE MY ROCKSTARS! (and obviously Publishing Houses as well!)

I am praying everything is working as it should, because while this goes online, I’ll be far, far away from my laptop (as in a few countries away) *fingers crossed*

Anyways, what are you waiting for?! Spread the word, grab that virtual slice of cake, and go enter the giveaway I put together for you!

International Giveaway

As you can see in the Rafflecopter, it says three Summer 2014 Galleys. Those Galleys are courtesy of Harper Collins US International Sales. I just got a huge box with Galleys to give away, and I selected a few that I think you guys would love to choose from.

We’ll do it this way.If you are one of the lucky three to have won a galley, you’ll receive an email from me stating that you have. You have 48 hours to respond and give me your Top 3 picks from this list:

– The Things You Kiss Goodbye by Leslie Connor

– Say What You Will by Cammie McGovern

– Fan Art by Sarah Tregay

– The Life and Times of Benny Alvarez by Peter Johnson

– The Half Life of Molly Pierce by Katrina Leno

      Haha, I was sitting on the things I was going to giveaway for SO LONG! I just told myself to shut up and not ruin the surprise, but it was SO HARD! I just wanted to yell out and tell you all what was going to be up for grabs haha.

      I hope you win something too! You rock, and I love reading your comments (and your GIF posts, because lets be honest, they’re flipping hilarious).

      Hug!
