Authors Around the World Blog Hop Signup

J.L. Campbell and I are organizing a Kindle Fire Giveaway blog hop for authors only to run during the Olympics. Each stop will highlight a book and the locale where each author lives. Author interviews will be swapped with another blogging author who shares the same audience: MG, YA, women, men, adult, Christian, etc. We will be collecting money from each participant for a Grand Prize Kindle Fire Giveaway, and hopefully some other smaller giftcards and eBooks. If you want to donate your eBook, let me know.

In addition to the main giveaway, each blogging author should also give away something small on their blog: bookmarks, eBooks, Books, swag, giftcard or whatever you wish.

If you have a Wordpress.com blog, it doesn't read javascript, so the Linky List and Rafflecopter will not work directly on your blog, and that's okay. Instead, you can simply add the link to the blog after yours at the end of the guest interview post and use your comment section for your own giveaway. Please use your name rather than you blog name in the Linky List so everything will be uniform. If you are interested, in addition to adding on to the Linky List, please email me at luvfisk at yahoo dot com, to let me know your author name, title, audience, blog and email address and send back your interview. I must have your interview by Thursday, July 26th, 10 AM and the guest post you receive must be live by Saturday, July 28th, 10 AM.

Here are the questions: You do not have to answer all of these if you don't want to. Basically give some fun facts about your book and where you live.

What title are you highlighting in this blog hop?

Synopsis:

What gave you the idea for the book?

Who are your main characters?

Who is your favorite character and why?

Share one quirky trait in one of your characters.
What was your biggest challenge writing this book?

Spill a secret, mystery or hidden thing in your book:

Where do you live?

What's a cool, unknown spot?

Tell us a little about an interesting landmark in your country.

What’s the most well known city in your country and why?

What's a little known fact about where you live?

Name two famous people who’ve been sighted in your corner of the world.

What is the one thing tourists must do?

What's your favorite thing to do?

What's your favorite restaurant and what type of food do they serve?

What are you giving away on your blog?

Who is the author you are highlighting on your blog? (I will b swapping the posts and will fill this in, once I get everyone's info)

Where can readers connect with you?

  1. This is really cool and I want to join. I'm still debating because I will be away during the Olympics. But, I will stop by the blogs for sure. If I join, how much will I need to contribute towards the Kindle Fire?

  2. Sounds great. I have no clue about linky list or raflecopter. I'm really out of the loop. Let me research and get back to you.

  3. The Linky List is that list at the bottom of my post. You click "Click Here to Enter" to add your Name, blog address and email. The Rafflecopter is just a special widget that the contest for the Kindle Fire will be in. Visitors can do different tasks to earn entries. All the authors participating in this will get the code to put into their blog. If you don't have a blog, you can easily set one up with Blogger because you're already on Google.
