The Contest Mother Lode

If you are a regular follower of any book blog, you are aware that many of us periodically are fortunate enough to receive copies from publishers or authors that we can give away to our readers.  Those contests generate hype for the author, and keep those of us who love to read in the loop about new books or new releases of past favorites.

Keeping up with all those contests is often time-consuming however, and finding, posting, and conducting contests cuts into reading time. There is one site however, that I must remind you about, Susan of West of Mars - Win a Book! is awesome.  To quote her page:

Win a Book is a unique sort of blog, in that we’re traffic cops more than anything else. We post links to author interviews and guest blog appearances, to book giveaways, and to other events that will connect books and readers. Author events, in which books can be autographed and/or purchased, for example.
What Win a Book does not do: Post book reviews. Host authors for guest blogs or interviews. Hold book giveaways.

If you're looking for more giveaways, or interviews or a page to find out what's happening in the book blog world, West of Mars is THE place to start.  Susan doesn't have everything, but each of those links on her page will have links to other pages.....they breed better than rabbits - and they're much less messy!!!

So spend some time this weekend entering contests and winning some great new books. Thanks Susan for a great blog, and for all your help posting our giveaways.

  1. Okay, I'm so busy at Win a Book that it took me this long to come by and thank you for the shout-out!

    I am always on the lookout not only for new bloggers and authors who'll send me links, but for folk who'd like to join the Win a Book Team and help with my busy inbox. If you know of any, or are a fun person, yourself, come on by and drop me a note!


Welcome, thanks for stopping by. Now that you've heard our two cents, perhaps you have a few pennies to throw into the discussion. Due to a bunch more anonymous spam getting through, I've had to disallow anonymous comments. I try to respond to all comments posing a question, but may not always get to you right away.
