Week One of The Writer Mama Every-Day-In-May Book Giveaway: Participating Authors

Yes, I am hosting a book giveaway and will give away a book a day all throughout the very, merry, Mother-centric month of May!

Nothing could thrill me more than this opportunity to showcase the hard-wrought labors of love of 31 awesome author moms.

Naturally, I would love to shine the spotlight on every hardworking mom writer. But I can’t realistically showcase every single author mom under the sun.

For example, I do not have the time or the resources to personally vet self-published books and e-books for this year’s giveaway. I just don’t have enough time or energy.

So my parameters were that authors should have had a book (or anthology piece, for anthology day) traditionally published in the past year. This stipulation makes my job easier because I can trust that the publishers and editors vetted the work for me.

There are a few exceptions. If someone has been a long-time student of mine and has taken my Micro-publishing for Mom Writers class, then I’ve already vetted their e-book. And if someone is already a traditionally published author or they have a bonus e-book that they would like to offer, I’m happy to allow them increase the size of their giveaway. I hope this will not offend or discourage anyone.

Anyone can participate in the giveaway, not just mom writers. There is no cost or purchase to try and win books. However, the giveaway is inspired by mom writers and by my own experience as a mom writer and teacher of mom writers so they are the folks the giveaway honors.

I’ll post the participation rules briefly in each post. And now without further ado, here are our week one author mamas!

    The line-up looks fat-tabulous Christina. Already have my eye on several titles…and such wonderful authors. I’m sharing this with my writers group today.

    Christina, every year when May (or in years past September) rolls around and you announce your contest, I can’t believe another year has come and gone. You are the highlight of my much-to-busy life, reminding me to keep the dream alive. Thank you for being such an inspiration to so many Writer Mamas.

    I am totally excited about seeing that Kelly James-Enger has a new book. I have been learning from her books and her essays for a long time, and I hope I’m lucky enough to win Writer for Hire and The Honesty Index.
