Hello, loyal readers! Now that it’s getting warmer (ok, in my neck of the woods it is!), it’s time to look forward a little to Summertime! Summertime, for me, means fun, so have I got some news for you! Last year in June, Candace of Candace’s Book Blog did a Favorite Things Event where she spotlighted some of her favorite books and authors (and a few other things) and did a lot of giveaways in celebration of her birthday. It was a lot of fun and was her first venture into planning an event alone.
Well, this year Candace isn’t going at it alone! I’ll be co-hosting this year, and with the two of us joining forces, it’s going to be bigger (MUCH bigger!) and better than last year! This year the event is running from May 23rd to July 1st, BUT we’re getting such a great response from authors and publishers that we may have to extend it!

So what are we doing, exactly? Well, we’ve spoken with authors, publishers, agents… you know, all those awesome book people, and we have tons of interviews, guest posts and giveaways lined up! We’ll also be doing reviews of books that fit the genres we’re featuring!
We are also hoping to get a few people to sponsor giveaways for the international folks. We’re getting a lot of books for giveaway, but if the authors or pubs aren’t mailing them, we are, and the costs are way too prohibitive to ship those books around the world. We are trying to come up with some different ways we can have some international giveaways included. If you’re interested in sponsoring one let me know.

We’ll be doing teasers of the some of the books and items we’ll be spotlighting. Be sure to keep an eye open for those. I’ll also keep this post up to date with all the goings on of the event. Candace has a teaser up as well, so make sure you check it out too! Closer to the time we’ll be listing the features and giveaways on this post. So be sure to grab the button and check back often!
