Debut Author Giveaway Hop 2014 (Open internationally!)

The 2014 Debut Author Giveaway Hop, hosted by Bookhounds and I Am a Reader, Not a Writer, 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 Debut Author Giveaway Hop is scheduled from December 4th at 12.01 AM until December 11th at 11:59 PM (EST).

The Prizes

I'm excited to do something a little different from my regular hops this time!

Recently, the New York Times released their list of the top 50 fiction titles of 2014, and several of them were from debut authors that I'd love to spotlight. Click each cover to learn more!

One lucky follower will win their choice of one of the debut novels that made the NYT Notable list.

We'll have ANOTHER winner for this amazing set of eBooks:

Both giveaways are open internationally—that's two winners total! Woohoo!!!!

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!
