Finding Books, Books, and MORE Books

First up, I wanted to pass along a blog tour/book giveaway going on at a friend’s blog: Words by Webb.

Not only has Marthe Jocelyn stopped by Jodi Webb’s blog to give away a copy of her book, Scribbling Women, but she’s also giving away a TON of books through her publisher, Tundra Press. And Marthe Jocelyn has written Picture Books through Young Adult, so if you’re a children’s writer, here’s a chance to win a bonanza of books! Read all the details and follow along the blog tour till April 10th to win big!

But don’t dilly-dallly too long. You’ll want to join me at MY blog, Cathy C.’s Hall of Fame on Friday, April 1, when Kristi Holl visits. Kristi’s written a wonderful book called More Writer’s First Aid and it’s packed with writing aids for whatever ails your writing. She’s giving away a copy of her book, so you’ll want to throw your name in for that prize! And you’ll want to hear her answers to some of the most common writing problems, too.

If winning books is something you enjoy, then check out blogs where folks review books and sponsor giveaways. Or make sure to sign up for Twitter and follow publishers who produce the books you read. Publishers are always giving away ARCs and debut books. It just takes a few minutes a day on Twitter to find book deals. (And the publishers pay the shipping to you!)

So, finding books to fill up your bookshelves with great reads is easy. Finding time to read all the books? Not so much.
