My First Giveaway: Lonestar Homecoming by Colleen Coble



This contest ends June 11th, 2010
There are several ways to get entries:
One entry for leaving a comment saying you want to win the book.
One entry for becoming a follower.
One entry for posting my giveaway on your blog.
One entry if you recommend someone to my blog, and they become a follower.
One entry for any advice/ recommendations for a new blogger. :)
Leave your e-mail in the post, please, and let me know if you post it or recommend my blog. (I know these two are somewhat the same, but kind of different, so I separated them).

  1. How can I resist entering now? ;) I would love a chance to win this book! Besides the two entries you mentioned, I also posted your giveaway on my blog. :)

    I'm honored to be your first follower! And as for pictures, I usually go to the publisher's site and use their description and book cover image (or Amazon.com, the author's website, etc.), and then just say where the information came from (like citing a source!). However, I think other blogger's might actually put more information on, so maybe someone will give you more advice on that.

    Hope I helped, and thanks again!

  2. P.S. If you do join some blogging programs, they have their own rules for when you do reviews for them (with step by step guidance). And if you would like any more help with using images, etc., Renee at Black 'n Gold Girl's Book Spot is super nice and a big help! (Hope she doesn't mind me referring you to her!) ;)

    Thanks again!

  3. Congrats on the new blog.

    Pics are SUPER easy. Go to Google.com. Click on "Images" at the top. Go the search box once you are there, type in what you want, like "Lonestar Homecoming by Colleen Coble" Find your image, click on it. Another page will pop up, click on "see full size"at the top of the screen.

    Copy and paste the URL (the web address) visit your blog post edit area OR new post. Click on the little picture icon and click on "from the web" enter the URL you copied. Your image should pop up right away and then click "okay" super easy. There are more steps to write out than actually take the time to do it.

    Have fun blogging, it is a GREAT adventure. :)

    Blog often and continuously and you should have a pretty faithful following.

  10. Welcome to the world of blogging! I'm not a writer or a blogger, just an avid reader. But I love blogs because I have discovered so many wonderful books that I would never have noticed otherwise. Your colors and design are very attractive.

    Something that I greatly appreciate is the blogger's personal thoughts about books. So my only advice is to be honest and express your thoughts, both pro and con.

  15. Leave comments on other blogs to make friends. Make sure your profile has your email so that when you leave a comment they can email you back, and don't worry about posting daily. It's not a job! Oh, and I also recommend moderating comments so if someone explores your blog and leaves a comment or question you see it! Let me know if I can help with any of these!

    As for blogging advice: try to review everything you read. If you read something and find you really didn't like it, try to be as honest as possible in your review without being too harsh.
