Kick-Butt Characters Giveaway Hop!

The Kick-Butt Characters Giveaway Hop, hosted by Kathy at I Am A Reader, Not A Writer and Good Choice Reading, works like this: 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, it means lots of chances to win free books. For blogs hosting giveaways, it means lots of new visitors and followers. It's a win-win! The Kick-Butt Characters Giveaway Hop is scheduled from March 23rd at 12.01 AM until March 28th at 11:59 PM (EST).

The Prizes

One lucky winner gets their choice of book from The Book Depository with a kick-butt main character. Lucky you!

Need a suggestion?

I'm currently reading a romantic suspense called In Her Sights in which the main character, Jazz, is the only female SWAT sniper and she kicks SO much ass butt. She's only human though, so she does have her weaknesses and vulnerabilities, and I think that's why I can connect with her so much, even though she's about 14 times as awesome as I am. I like it so far—not amazing, but still pretty good—so if you're mulling around and can't decide what you want, it's definitely up there on the list!

I love giving away eBooks too, so a runner-up will win the ultimate bundle featuring:

TBD will be shipping the chosen book directly, so I am not responsible for lost or damaged items.

The Small Print

I'm not saying this because I'm a completely anal and want to make your life a living hell, but because I've noticed something going on with a lot of follower hops. The point of them is not to temporarily follow that blog and unfollow as soon as the giveaway is over. The point of the follower hops is for the blogs generously offering giveaway prizes to gain more readers and followers—in return, participants receive the opportunity to win great prizes such as books, gift cards, and swag. I'm not just speaking on behalf of myself, because seriously, I'm so grateful for the followship I have (love every each and one of you!), but I know for a fact this happens with lots of other blogs as well. Being part of the blogging community, I just want my two cents be heard. If you are so inclined as to read more about how I feel on this subject matter, please refer to this blog post.

The End

Sorry my rant was a little bitchy. I'm not trying to be mean. YOU KNOW I LOVE YOU so don't even go there, darling. And if you're one of those people who are loyal to blogs and never, ever unfollow, you. are. a. treasure. Be sure to enter all of the other giveaways going on for this hop; there are so many great prizes being given away!

xo and always!
