Congratulations to Morgan Reeves! Your book has been tweeted, shared on Pinterest, added to my Goodreads TBR for the event, and shared on Facebook.

PITCH your book in the comments. Put your LINK in the Rafflecopter entry form. Tell me why you think I'll like it, why I should check it out, and a little about the story. DO NOT give me a synopsis. I can get that from Amazon. Make it personal or make it funny. I care not. I'll be grabbing a sample of every book pitched and go from there.

Please specify if you're entering as an author, a reader, or both. Author only entries will be removed before a winner is chosen.

IF you have a pre-order, please upload a SAMPLE to Google Drive and give people with the link permission to view. Put that link in the Rafflecopter form.

I strongly encourage you to check out the works of your fellow Indie authors. Chat in the comments, talk each other up, make friends!

Book reviewers! You're welcome to play along, too! Meet and greet authors. Get new books to read and review. It only works if we all work together.

**Kindly remember, there's no guarantee your book will be reviewed by me. You will get a purchase if your sample interests me, and I'll try my best to read it. But if I find I can't give it more than 2 stars, I won't write the review. I've had a few I couldn't finish and it led to me not giving a review.**

Now it's time to announce the winners from yesterday's giveaway!

    2. You're such a tease, Jo. LOL

      In gratitude,
      Marissa xoxo

    3. I know, right? I'm feeling like I need to dump them all in a hat and choose blind because there are SO many amazing books in that list :( GAH!

  2. Thanks Jo for this fun event, and Katie for the swag packs! This has been so much fun! Hate to see it wrapping up.

    1. It's been so lovely to have you around, Chick! Hope you've made some new friends. After all, we have nothing without our tribe :) <3

  3. Hey Jo! Here's my pitch:

    The Amber Project

    In 2157, a mysterious gas known as Variant spreads across the globe, killing or mutating most organic life. The surviving humans take refuge in an underground city, determined to return home. But after generations of failures and botched attempts, hope is beginning to dwindle. That is, until a young scientist makes a unique discovery—and everything changes. Suddenly, there’s reason to hope again, and it rests within a group of genetically engineered children that are both human and Variant.

    Terry is one of these children, modified and trained to endure the harsh conditions of a planet he cannot begin to understand. After years of preparation, Terry thinks he knows what to expect. But the reality is far stranger than anything he can imagine—and what he will become is far more dangerous.

    1. Hello, and welcome to the insanity, JN! CRAP! This books sounds SOOOOO GOOOOD! o.O Must. Have. Sample. Now! I'm off to read. Feel free to poke around and load up on some books :) Thank you SO much for the pitch, and good luck!
