Book Giveaways Galore

      Margo L. Dill 

       Happy ALMOST Fall!

It's in the air in St. Louis today! I want to tell you about four book giveaways going on today and this weekend into next week. Hopefully one of them will appeal to you or someone you know. If you have time, all of these authors and sites would appreciate your support. :) As always, let me know if there's something I can do for you. :) Happy reading!

1. On my blog, I am hosting a giveaway for A Southern Place by Elaine Drennon Little (WiDo Publishing). Elaine has written a Southern saga set in the 1950s, revolving around agriculture, love, drinking, business, and grief. The characters in this debut novel are amazing. If you love character-driven novels, enter to win a copy here: http://margodill.com/blog/2013/09/13/a-southern-place-by-elaine-drennon-little/

2. Also on my blog, I was lucky enough to read, review, and offer a giveaway for the anthology full of true essays (memoir-type) about women in religions around the world titled: Beyond Belief: The Secret Lives of Women in Extreme Religion. This would be a GREAT book club pick. Check it out and enter to win here: http://margodill.com/blog/2013/09/12/beyond-belief/

3. On WOW! Women On Writing's blog, The Muffin, I interviewed YA debut author, Sara Polsky, on her contemporary YA novel about a teenager whose mother is bipolar, and the teen is trying to live her life and discover who she is. Sara has some interesting things to say about research and finding an agent. You can also enter to win her book: This is How I Find Her, here: http://muffin.wow-womenonwriting.com/2013/09/sara-polsky-talks-her-debut-ya-novel.html

4. Finally, STARTING TOMORROW (9/14), my new blog with my critique group, THE LIT LADIES, will be hosting Shawndra Russell, who has a very practical book for anyone who wants to get started as a freelance writer OR who is already freelancing but wants to increase your income. Her GUEST POST is about inching toward ANY writing goal whether you write novels, short stories, or articles, and she encourages you to share your current projects and word counts with us--even if you aren't interested in her book: HOW TO BECOME A FREELANCE WRITER IN 30 DAYS! Anyway, the link is: http://www.thelitladies.com/inching-toward-your-writing-goals-with-15-minutes-a-day-by-shawndra-russell/  but it won't be LIVE until 9/14.
