On behalf this publisher and the efforts of both Lucille Rettino and Ellen Chan, we have three copies of five different titles up for grabs in the Kick-Off Contest....one of which is a boxed set with a poster of the author's soon to be released title!

Elephants On Trapezes
(Readerly Person)
I'm a recent college graduate eating ramen noodles to keep myself in books. What books? Any books, tall, short, thin, fat - although I tend toward young adult, science fiction, fantasy, and historical fiction. My blog, Elephants On Trapezes, lets me talk about said books (and also about writing) with quite possibly the coolest people in the world. Goals? To (finally) finish my second novel. And to read until words spill out my ears.



------------------------------------------


Emily's Reading Room
(Emily)
I read mainly young adult fiction. My goal is to get people I know to pick up a book, es pecially if they aren't avid readers. I want everyone to know the possibilities available in a good book.



------------------------------------------

Buried in Books
(Heather Rosdol)
My goal is to keep up with the new authors and novels out there and maybe branch out into other genres. I'd also like to make friends with people I can discuss books with that like the same type of books that I do. I love the blog hops on Friday!



------------------------------------------


Tethered Mommy
(Maggie)
I'm tethered to many things, but especially books. I don't go anywhere without a book in my hand. As a book reviewer, I want you to see whether a book is worth your time and if it is a light read or something a bit more emotionally involved.



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Wow! We have some great looking folks there and the best part? There's more where THAT came from! Take a moment, check out their sites and see what they're all about. Be sure to stop by again soon for our next spotlight feature....you never know, YOU might be next!


Happy reading!
