[TSS] Not-Quite-As-Large List of Book Giveaways – Aug 30

For today’s Sunday Salon, I am, unfortunately, posting a smaller list of book giveaways than usual. The week kind of got away from me, and I’m still working hard on finishing the first draft of my novel. Hopefully next Sunday I’ll be back with a normal sized list of book giveaways, one that will qualify as a regular edition of “The Big List of Book Giveaways”.

Today’s list is culled mainly from giveaways I spotted at random this past week through my feed reader and through Twitter, as well as from the emails people kindly sent to me advising me of their giveaways. Normally I do a lot more research, which is why normally the list is a lot bigger.

This giveaways round-up post is a regular feature here at MsBookish so if you’re holding a book giveaway, let me know and I’ll include your giveaway in my next giveaways round-up post.

  1. Children’s books: Author Janet Halfmann is holding a giveaway to celebrate the launch of her new website – you can win a copy of Little Skink’s Tail or a copy of Seven Miles to Freedom (ends Sept 12). I reviewed Little Skink’s Tail here; it’s a lovely book – highly recommended.
