Blogoversary Giveaway!

It is a wee bit past my  first blogoversary, but that doesn't mean I can't have a giveaway! I started this blog mid-February in 2011, though I didn't started reviewing books til around the tail-end of May. But anyway I wanted to have a giveaway as a means of appreciation for my followers!

Spring for Susannah

One fortunate winner will receive:

Spring for Susannah (ARC)
To Love and To Cherish by Kelly Irvin
Amelia's Journey by Martha Rogers
A Most Unsuitable Match by Stephanie Grace Whitson
Summer Dream by Martha Rogers
Winter's Promise by Martha Rogers
Protecting Amy by Susan Page Davis
Four Letter Words by Bill Giovannetti
Protection for Hire by Camy Tang
Wings of Love by Kim Watters

( I may be adding more to this prize as things go along, so keep in mind there might be even more books later!)

Another winner will receive a hand cross-stitched bookmark that I made :)

The rules are simple:

~ You MUST be a follower ~ because I want to appreciate my followers, though new followers are more than welcome.
~ You MUST live in the U.S.
~ You MUST leave a comment below including your email address, perferrably (for your sake) encoded so spammers can't get it! Example: crazi.swans at gmail dot com

I will pick the winners March 11th, 2012. I will notify the winners by email and they will have one week to respond or another winner will be chosen.

*Just a small note, these are review copies and one or more of them might be an ARC, also I like to perserve my books in Contact Paper, just in ase any of the above mentioned stuff bothers you!

Also I will be using Random.org :)
And if you win and already have a copy of one or more of the books, I will, if you would like, choose another winner for the books that you already have :)

Thank you so much for the all the wonderful encouragement I have received from you all over the past year!
