Spring Into Summer Blog Giveaway and Hop!!

Welcome to the first annual "Spring Into Summer" book blog giveaway hop co-hosted with Coffee & Romance, a book blog. This giveaway hop will run from 12:01 a.m. on June 17 through 11:59 p.m. on June 21.

What is a giveaway hop and how does it work?
It's quite simple, actually. Each participating blog hosts a giveaway and then we all link up together via InLinkz so that our followers can easily hop from one giveaway to another. For followers, this means lots of chances to win free goodies. For those hosting a giveaway, this means lots of new visitors/followers.

Anyone with a book-related blog (whether you're a reader or writer) is eligible to participate. Each participating blog will host their own giveaway. It's totally at the discretion of the individual participant what they want to use as a giveaway prize. Some examples of prizes are: books, swags, gift cards (Amazon, B&N, Book Depository, etc.) or anything else you can think of that is book-related.

All participating blogs will be linked up through InLinkz (a giveaway linky). Please don't make your giveaway entry process complicated; i.e. no ridiculously long lists of a bunch of different things that followers have to do or can do to earn extra entries.

Some things to keep in mind when setting up your giveaway post:
First and foremost, spread the word. The more participants we have, the more goodies and visitors we get! Go grab the code at the top of this post and pimp, pimp, pimp!

You MUST include the linky list that contains all the participating blogs at the end of your post. This is MANDATORY. I will be sending the code via email.

Giveaway must be book-related, can be US, Canada and/or International and the prize can be as much or as little as you want.

Again, keep your entry process simple. I would suggest one mandatory entry and no more than three to five optional entries.

Schedule your post to go "live" at 12:01 a.m. June 17. Giveaway hop ends precisely at 11:59 p.m. on June 21 (first day of summer).

Make sure you turn OFF word verification and CAPTCHA. If you're worried about spam, enabling comment moderation should take care of that.

An email containing the linky code and more detailed information will be sent out about five days prior to the hop.

Last but certainly not least, have fun!
