Hello again everyone, Paul here. I am thrilled to kick off the Young Adult Faeries & Fantasy Giveaway Hop hosted by Kathy at I Am A Reader Not A Writer and Gabrielle from The Mod Podge Bookshelf. Also, make sure to stop back by tomorrow for Sher’s blast about Rise of the Fire Tamer as the Rise of the Fire Tamer Blog Tour hosted by I Am A Reader Not A Writer stops here. **This just in** All Middle Grade authors head on over to The Haunting of Orchid Forsythia. I was just directed to this blog and she is running an All About Middle Grade Challenge 2013. Here’s the idea: Are you a middle grade author, want your book to be spotlighted
next this year during the challenge on my blog? Than this post is just for you. Here’s what she says about why she’s doing this: I have a deep love for all that is MG and want to help get the word out there about all the fabulous books and the wonderful authors that write them. Trust me when I say, it is tough to find promotional opportunities for children’s and Middle Grade books, so head on over and sign up today. And if you aren’t an MG author, please help support this initiative by sharing. Thanks, now back to our regular programming.
Now on to the Giveaway Hop. We are lucky enough to have author Ann T. Bugg return to our blog and give away one paperback copy (sorry US only) and one ebook copy (INT) of Book 3 of her wonderful middle grade fantasy series The Before Happily Ever After Series: Off to Camp and Discovering Art (King Arthur). In case you missed it the last time around I reviewed books 1 & 2 of the series. You can read them here & here.
Here is the blurb:
Valerie and Samantha are disappointed that their schedules were not allowing them to spend a week together this summer like they have done every year since they were young. Their parents are able to plan a weekend camping trip towards the end of summer. The girls are happy for the visit, but sad to think they can’t go through the mirror this year on another adventure. They discover the magic is not only within the mirror, but within themselves when they are together. Merlin the magician shows up to take them on their quest to help Arthur find his true identity and his place in Camelot.
And now for a bit about the author Ann T. Bugg:
Ann T. Bugg is the Queen of her castle in southern Minnesota where she lives with her Knight in shining armor (who has come to her rescue more than once) and her own little Princess Valerie. The pets in her magical kingdom come in all shapes and sizes, as do all the critters that make their way out of the enchanted forest. Horseback riding, long walks with her dogs (Otter & Dottie pictured above) and embroidering are on her list of hobbies, but writing will always be her first love.
