Congratulations to Danielle Mathieson Pederson! 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!

Well, that's all for today, folks! Until next time, WRITE ON!



  1. Thank you Rachel Brownwell and Casey Anderson for your donations.

    1. <3 Thanks for entering every day :) Hope you entered for the big prize, too. Would make one hell of an awesome Christmas gift (even to yourself LOL)

    2. you are most welcome thank you and all the authors and readers! Yes it would be lol !

  2. Rachel and Casey, thank you for your donations! You guys are awesome!

    1. <3 That goes double for you. You're such a breath of fresh air at this event :)

  3. Hi Jo, here's my pitch for Children Shouldn't Play with Dead Things. It's a young adult paranormal romance but I've got fans well into their fifties. I've been told it's equal parts creepy and laugh out loud funny. My characters are as diverse as my real life friends and, since it's the first in the series if you love my characters, there will be more to come. Hope you give it a shot.

    1. Welcome to the crazy, Martina! Hey, even us old coots need some fun and whimsical in our lives :) I'm all about the one-liners and the extra creep factor. So few horror books this year! Thank you, thank you, for the pitch! Hope you have some fun and make some new friends :)

  4. Just entering as a reader today! I keep reminding myself I need to come back and then get distracted. :) Thanks Rachel and Casey for your donations. A lot of good books have been pitched, I'm still going through the list. Love this event so much. Thanks for having it, Jo!

    1. LOL!! I know what you mean :) Thanks. I love it, too, Violet! It's my pleasure. I love helping when and where I can (and it's an excuse to read great books from authors who want me to)! Skadoosh!

  5. I've been MIA lately but trying to catch up on blogging and visiting my favorite sites. This is always such an amazing event you have and loads of fun. I'll be popping back in for sure =)

    1. HEY THERE, HEATHER!! So good to see you :) Yay!!! We love new faces coming by and saying hello! :)

  6. Hey Jo, et al!

    I'm back for another crack. ;)

    Not sure if you want me to keep rambling on about my amazing, totally awesome, absolutely freakin' fantastic book Avelynn, but you haven't kicked me out yet, so I'm taking that as a good sign. :D

    Forbidden love, smoking hot sexy scenes, vengeance, lust, betrayal, war... Avelynn has it all. Oh, and a gorgeous Viking jarl named Alrik (who has Chris Hemsworth as a body double).

    Good luck to everyone, and thank you to all the very generous authors giving away their book babies. Congratulations to all the winners.

    In gratitude,
    Marissa xo
