Kid Lit Giveaway Blog Hop

Follow twitter tag #KidLitGH to track how the hop is doing.

Brought to you by: Mother Daughter Book Reviews and Youth Literature Reviews.

The purpose of this hop is to get the word out about Children's Book Week. I'm excited about this because I write for the tween to young YA audience.

My genre is fantasy, but you won't find any princesses, dwarves, elves, or any of the euro-centric middle-earth stuff. I write in two areas. The Witches of Galdorheim series is set in present day and in the real world. Ranging from the arctic Barents Sea to Siberia to Scotland, Katrina, a teen witch finds adventure and danger.

Setara and Faizah have their adventures when Djinns, demons, flying horses, and simurghs roamed the earth. The two books are not a series, but take place in the same shared world based on pre-Islamic middle-eastern mythology.

Read about Kat, Setara and Faizah on my website. 

My giveaway is any format ebook of any of The Witches of Galdorheim Series (Bad Spelling, Midnight Oil, ScotchBroom), or "Setara's Genie," or "Faizah's Destiny." Maybe I'll get crazy and give away all five ebooks. It all depends on how many of you leave a comment.

Here's the Link List for the Kid Lit Blog Hop. Click your way through the blog posts for giveaways at every single stop. What are you waiting for? Get to clickin'! After leaving a comment here, of course, if you want to win one of my books.
