Of Note: Freebies, Contests and more!

Maria Zannini not only released a new eBook about living frugally called Smart Budgets for Busy People, but started a great new Facebook page called "The Frugal Way" about it -- if you're not following, you should. She shares Freebies and deals daily.

Dru Ann has a second blog called Dru's Book Musings where she introduces us to the characters from various cozy mysteries AND nearly every post has a giveaway of the book she's featuring. What a great way to find new stories to add to your TBR list!

I would be remiss if I didn't mention that every tour Goddess Fish Promotions runs has a giveaway assocated. Just yesterday there were seven contests for Amazon GCs, a Visa card GC, eBooks and more!

There are regular blog hops where books, GCs and more are part of the prize -- and there are hundreds of participants! One great place to look for regular "hops" is I Am a Reader, Not a Writer. -- there's one starting on January 13th: Dreaming of Books.

And lastly, of course, Long and Short Reviews is giving away a $50 Amazon GC this month. Think of how many new books you could buy!!!

Anyone else know of places to look for freebies and giveaways? Share them in comments.


You Are Fun Because You Don't Have Hangups

You inspire others with your far out visions and concepts. You get people excited.

You love undertaking new and interesting projects. You have lots of ideas.

You feel like the world doesn't have limits. You certainly don't set limits for yourself.

You live primarily inside your own mind. You happily spend a lot of time thinking.

Yeah.... that's mostly right!

Thanks for the mention! I'm really enjoying posting the freebies and discounts. In the past when I came across them, unless I knew someone was actually looking for these things, they'd just sit there. With Facebook, now I can share daily. Sometimes I run across some great finds.

About the only other bit of news I have is that Noble Romance is open for submissions. This is an advance-paying publisher.

I know that Dear Author releases freebie/deals at least once a week on ebook deals.... For sales and such on most every other product you can think of- Want Not ( has great deals.

Dru's Review site is awesome! I love the character interviews!
I'll be sure to check out Maria's new Facebook page.

I hope you're staying warm and snuggly today!

Thanks for the shout-out Marianne. I love doing this as this is my way of giving back to the authors that have given me reading pleasure.

Thanks Brandy.
