We have lots of fun things going on right now! First, I’m super excited to announce up upcoming 5th Annual Reading Challenge Month! This is a super fun event that we hold every September where we host four weekly reading challenges. The folks here at Joyfully Jay read books that fit those challenges. Readers can get involved for fun and prizes by commenting on challenge reviews, and earn bonus entries by reading along with their own challenge book and writing a mini review! This year Reading Challenge Month will run September 1-29th. Over the next few Sundays we will be revealing our challenges, the prizes, and what we are reading. If you want more info, check out last years Kickoff post with links to all the details.
Also, today I am excited to be the guest on Kate Hawthorne’s FB group, Hawthorne’s Harem. I’ll be posting throughout the day and chatting with readers and even doing a giveaway. I am the first non-author to be a host for her Sunday takeovers so I need all the support I can get! If you have a chance to stop by the group and chat on any of my posts, I’d love to see you!
And as a reminder, we have a fabulous FB group of our own, The Joyful Jays! We share blogs posts and chat and each week we host an author for our Ask Me Anything giveaway Wed-Fri. This week our visiting author is Beth Bolden and she will be giving away a backlist book. Hope you stop by and join us!
