You are now entering the world of my thoughts.

This blog is my diary of works in progress. The only way a writer can improve upon her skill is to practice, practice and practice some more. Here, in this place of quiet peace, I pen to paper my thoughts and creativity. Welcome to my world.

Calling New Authors and Book Lovers!!




Have you recently published a book? Do you know a first time author recently published? It's tough these days getting our stories and books out there. This hop/giveaway helps to support first time authors whether published traditionally or self-published in getting their books noticed and read by the reading community. Let's support one another! Find and support new authors and their debut publications!
For authors: Provide details/summary of your book, places where your book can be purchased, review(s) etc. Giveaway is not mandatory but is highly encouraged. J
For book lovers: If you have read a debut novel and loved it, help the author by sharing it with us. Write a substantial review and where the book can be found. A book giveaway is not mandatory but again, it is highly encouraged. Nothing draws a big crowd like a fun book giveaway! J

This sounds great--I am joining in! Thanks!

Marilyn Yarbrough said...

This seems like a great way to meet other new writers. Thanks for the opportunity.

J.C. Martin said...

Great idea for a blog hop! Sadly I only have a short story, and not a novel, published, but I'll pop by to discover new writers!

Join me in the Trick or Treat Spooktacular! Could you help make the Grand Prize a brand new Kindle Touch?

Louise said...

This is wonderful! Thanks for doing this:) I would love to offer an eBook to one of your followers in a giveaway. How can I find out about participating? Nice to meet you all!!

Ms Saba (aka Teacher007.5) said...

Hi Louise. It is very simple. Now that you are signed up, on the 23rd of nov, you will post on your blog or website a summary introducing yourself and book to everyone who visits you site for the blog hop. :) Be sure to add the blog hop button to your post. :)

Susan Kaye Quinn said...

What a great idea! (And thanks to Heather for featuring me!) Tomorrow (10/25) I'm going to be participating in an Internet Book Fair where a bunch of indie books out this fall will be available for browsing, just like a real Book Fair. I invite everyone to stop by, and if you're a new author, please send me your cover/blurb/links so I can include you!

Anne Gallagher said...

Susan, because I sent you my information, do you still want me to link up? I probably should right?

Jamie Brook Thompson said...

I am so excited! I'm not much of a friend spammer, and the word on the street is you have to spam you friends to get your novel out there. This is a brilliant way of getting it out without losing all my friends! LOL Seriously, thanks for the blog hop!

Susan Kaye Quinn said...

@Anne Up to you - I think it would be cool to do the hop as well as just the piece of it that's on my blog. :)

Jessie Harrell said...

Thank you so much for having this super-cool blog hop. Looking forward to it!

K.C. Neal said...

Very cool idea! And timely - my first book releases November 4th. :) Thank you for putting this together. Love the blog hop badge, too!

Ms Saba (aka Teacher007.5) said...

Congratulations KC looking forward to see your new book! :)

Kelley said...

Awesome! My book isn't out until December 6th, but it's close enough I can do a giveaway for a signed copy or something. :) Thanks for putting this together!

Ms Saba (aka Teacher007.5) said...

Definitely!!! Looking forward to it! :)

Patricia Lynne said...

Hope it's not too late to sign up. I have my debut book and a friend's that I would love to share and do a give away for. ^_^

Ms Saba (aka Teacher007.5) said...

Welcome on board Patricia. I will leave the list open until just before the blog hop. That way, as word gets around, more authors have theopportunity to join :)

Nicole said...

Wow! This is great. Thanks for posting! I'm always happy to discover new (and fellow) authors.

I'm going to get my post in my queue so I don't forget. I've got the button captured that's shown above. Do I simply link it back to this blog post or this blog in general?

This is such a great idea. Sometimes it's so difficult to keep up with all the authors especially new ones.
