Hands down, the best part about going to the actual BEA (Book Expo America) is getting to spend time with so many authors, bloggers, publishers, editors, and PR folks all under one big roof.
A close second is all the swag (i.e. books) that is foisted upon you.
It’s actually very overwhelming. I went to the Book Bloggers Convention that was part of BEA in 2010 and 2011, and I still haven’t read or reviewed all the books that I lugged home. (And the official BEA was over by that time!)
In that same spirit of things, our friends at Armchair BEA have made sure that those of us at home this year aren’t left out of the abundance of book goodness. Many a blogger and publisher alike are hosting special Armchair BEA Giveaways today … including me.
I couldn’t keep my giveaway to just one item. Not today. My husband (who had thyroid cancer last fall) got some fantastic news health-wise this morning, so I am in a very appreciative and generous mood. This means that I am giving away TWO fantastic prizes.
1. The first is a sample edit, by me, of up to 10 pages of your manuscript. If you’re working on a novel or memoir, this is a chance to get some professional feedback. I normally charge $1.50 per page for sample edits, so this giveaway has a value of $15.00.
2. I am also giving away a very gently used hardback copy of THE SMART ONE, the new novel by Jennifer Close.
You can enter for a chance at both prizes, but the same person will not be selected to win both.
I’m really new to using Rafflecopter, so I don’t know how to make it all fancy and drop-downy. I believe clicking this link will take you where you need to be.
