Back to the Books Giveaway Hop

Posted by Simcha 9:09 AM, under | 71 comments


I recently realized that it's been ages since I last did a giveaway here so when I saw Kathy promoting her Back to the Books Hop I decided to participate. This gives me an opportunity to celebrate the start of the new school year (and hopefully the return of some of semblance of order to my life with my kids back in school) and all of my wonderful readers, because you guys are awesome. Especially those of you who have stuck around since the beginning, even though I haven't been as active here as I used to be (on the plus side, this largely has to do with the fact that I have a new job! Unfortunately the downside is that I don't have time for anything fun anymore).

And if you are new to SFF Chat, welcome and sorry for the long monologue. I hope you'll take a look around and come back soon.

OK..so now to the giveaway details..




Here are the books on offer:




Glamour in Glass by Mary Robinette Kowal

The Alchemist of Souls by Anne Lyle

The Thorn and the Blossom by Theodora Godd

Magic Slays by Ilona Andrews

The River King's Road by Liane Merciel (or its sequel, Heavens's Needle)

Ship Breaker by Paolo Bacigalupi

Bitter Seeds by Ian Tregillia



Details:

There will be one winner, chosen using a number generator, and they can select one book from the list above.

The giveaway runs from September 1st - 7th
You must be a follower of SFF Chat to be entered.
The giveaway is open internationally

+1 If you had been following my blog before today

To enter leave a comment below with your name, email, additional entries and the title of the book you would be interested in receiving (though if you do win you are welcome to change your mind).
