The 2013 Writer Mama Every-Day-In-May Book Giveaway Prizes

I am very excited to announce the lineup for our 2013 Writer Mama Every Day In May Book Giveaway.

You can view the Pinterest board here.

This is my sixth time hosting this ginormous giveaway celebrating author mamas from around the United States and I could not be more thrilled to welcome everyone.

Let the Mother’s Day Month celebration begin! Most of the books being given away are published between June 2012 and May 2013, with a few notable exceptions. Most are by moms, again, with a notable exception.

I will tell you all about each author and book as we go along. But in the meantime, feel free to visit their check out their books for yourself.

In order to win a book or books, participants must answer a question at the end of each giveaway post. You can read the complete rules here.

Some mom writers come back every year to participate in this giveaway. And I hope you will spread the word and tell all of your writer mama friends to come and join in the fun. 🙂

    Hi Christina! This looks fabulous! What great titles. If you still need one more, I’d love to offer you a few copies of An Anthology of Babes: 36 Women Give Motherhood a Voice. It features art and writing by women who are mothers and artists. I will surely link this contest to my blog. And I’ll be back to comment. Just let me know. xo Suzi
