The Big Reveal Blog Hop for the A-Z Challenge
is hosted by

The idea is to reveal what theme you will be posting for the challenge during the month of April!


After much deliberation, I have decided to give a little back to all my author blogger friends and have been very busy reading lots of books over the past few months

 So, can you guess what my posts will be about?

Yes, I will be basing my A-Z Challenge on....
book reviews of my fellow blogger authors!
With a few tour hostings from a couple of 
new authors tossed in as well.

Will you be on my list?
Well, you will have to wait until 
Monday April 1st to find out, 
when the Challenge begins!

I will also be posting my reviews on 
Goodreads / Amazon / 
Smashwords /Barnes and Noble /  
Net Galley (for affiliated authors) / Shelfari

This year, I have also taken on the roll of a Minion for the Challenge
for Jeremy - Retro Zombie, so beware!

I may just visit you to ensure you are playing the game correctly!

Jeremy - Retro Zombie creates the badges for the 
A-Z Challenge  and is one of the co-hosts.
You can download them to use on your blog from the 
A-Z Challenge site.  

I will personally be using the A-Z Challenge calendar and the Alphabet Letters to use for my posts.

 So make sure you sign up at the A-Z Challenge site 
using the linky list, to join in on the fun!


 I will also be holding a vote during the month of the Challenge (April) where visitors will be able to cast who they feel are their most worthy blogger buddies.  

The Fellow Bloggers Appreciation Vote! 

Show your appreciation to a fellow blogger who you have noticed goes out of their way to help, and who always participates in the various Blog Fests, Hops and Events held on the Web. 

Simply fill out the Voting Form on the side tab of my posts or click the link on the posts, to go to a new page which shows the document on a full page. 

Remember to enter the coinciding Rafflecopter draw for a 
$20 Amazon Kindle Gift Card, up for grabs,
just for casting your vote!

What I haven't decided yet, is the prize for the 
blogger who wins the vote!
Ah, but I have over a month to make this decision.

I hope you enjoy the A-Z Challenge for 2013!
See you there! 


By the way, don't forget that my illustrator, 
Rebekah Romani
 is having a 
Custom Cover Sale
where you can organize to 
have her design a book cover to fit your imagination!

That is a really great theme!
Zombie Minion!! Jeremy has a great team.
And the contest is really awesome.

Jeremy [Retro] said...

thank you for the shout out... it was wonderful. I am glad you found the letters, I didn't think I posted them well enough... It's funny the desktop thing makes it so much easier... it's one of those things.

Thank you for being a minion... I may need to call on us all again, we are reaching another group to check in on...

Which means everyone needs to check back often to see what book you are highlighting.

Laura Clipson said...

Book reviews is a great idea for the challenge, can't wait to read them :)

Jackie said...

Unknown said...

Robin said...

great idea for the challenge. I'm planning on using the letters as well.

Thanks for the follow:D Returning the favor here.

Kristin said...

Sounds like a good way for me to find new reading material. I will be checking back often.

Jamie Dement (LadyJai) said...

Uh oh...I Hope I will be playing by the rules! I like my brains...I don't want no zombies eating them!

And your theme! WOW! I would have to save up reviews for like 2 years! I'm such a slow reader! LOL

Good luck! This is my first year with the A to Z challenge, even though I've watched it grow over the last 3 years. I'm also taking part in the Reveal. I'm trying to share some positivity with my #WriteMotivation friends on Twitter (and to help keep me positive in the process)
Hope to see you around :)

What a nice idea! Super to review books. I might have to add that to my list for a future A to Z challenge.

Good, book reviews and no one can miss it in all those places you're gonna post.
What a splendid idea, the blogger vote. Only one vote per blogger?

Wonderful theme, Carolyn. You sound all kinds of busy.

Awesome theme. I'm curious about the more difficult letters now. More books are going to be added to my TBR I bet.
