G is for Giveaways (and Great Contests)

Thought I'd share a few giveaways and contests I stumbled upon lately.

Jennifer Hoffine used the A-Z blog challenge as a chance to give away all sorts of cool prizes - books, ARCs, and a Barnes and Nobles gift certificate. She calls it the How Many Have You Read/Heard Contest. Each day will feature YA audiobooks she's listened to that have titles starting with that day's letter. All you have to do is stop by her blog and comment on the one's you've read. Neat, huh? She's so clever - I wish I would've thought to do that.

Donea Lee hosts a Caption Contest as part of her A-Z challenge. Check it out. An Amazon gift card could be yours!

Elana Johnson's debut novel Possession hits the shelves in two months and she's having a giveaway to celebrate! Check it all out here.

Any of my book blogger friends interested in attending the BBC in New York? Click here or here for chances at scholarships.

Suzie Townsend of Fine Print Literary offers a chance to win a copy of Invincible Summer. The contest involves writing a one hundred word story so you might want to hurry on that one - the contest ends at midnight tonight.

Don't forget about the Writer's Digest Short Story Competition! You could win cash and a trip to the WD Conference in New York! Click here for more info. Deadline is May 2.

And the Bookanistas are giving back. Click here for an inspiring story, a chance to support an amazing cause, and win all kinds of really cool stuff.

I know there are a whole bunch of other cool giveaways and contests out there. If you're hosting a contest or giveaway, email me at If I get several emails about contests, I may post a follow-up early next week.

SO, any contests you're excited about?


  1. I knew about several of those. Hope you're enjoying the Challenge!

  2. Thanks for the plug, and the other links!

  3. Super contests, Alison! I don't think I'd heard of any of these. Looking forward to reading Invincible Summer. That's cool Suzie's doing a giveaway.

  4. Thanks for the information. I love contests.

    I am holding a contest on my blog on my letter E post. You can find the info here:
