Awesome August Blog Hop!

So, my good friend Tristi Pinkston started this blog hop and it sounded like a lot of fun, so I decided to join her!

Welcome to the Awesome August Blog Hop, where bloggers from all over the Internet have come together to throw a summertime party!

Every blog on this hop is offering a fun prize, and entering is quick and easy. Simply follow the instructions on each blog, leave a comment, and bop right along to the next blog. You can win multiple times, so be sure to check out all the participating blogs!

To enter here, you need to follow my blog for an entry, then go to Barnes and,, and/or and either like/rate (star) my book, The Sapphire Flute, for one entry each, or write a review, for two entries each. (For Amazon, see NOTE below.)

Once you've done all that, leave a comment telling me what you've done and I'll add up your points.

Now, do you want to know what you'll get for doing all of that? Well of course you do!

You shall get a few things:
1) A $10 Amazon or iTunes gift certificate--your choice.
2) A hand-bound collection of my favorite quotes, some about writing, some not.
3) A copy of Mella Reese's book "Nia."

Now, surely that worth a little of your time? :D Good! See y'all on the other side!

NOTE: I have been informed that soliciting reviews for my book on Amazon is against their policy, so I have to withdraw that as being part of the contest, though if you have read the book and feel it genuinely deserving of your vote or comment, that is always appreciated.

Thank you!

I'm following you via Google Reader.
Liked your book on Amazon.
Liked your book on B&N.
Rated it as "to read" on Goodreads (my fave!)

Sapphire Flute is next on my TBR list, so the review'll have to wait. :) I'm a bookbinder, though... so a handbound book of quotes sounds so amazing!!!

Liked on all 4. Total 5. Wish I could have reviewed but I don't have a copy yet because I'm so new to ANWA. It's right up my alley for what I like to read and what I write. I think I'll sign up for this blog hop thing too.
