~~~Fourth of July Celebration~~~



Welcome to the Freedom Giveaway Hop hosted by I Am a Reader, Not a Writer and Simply Stacey.

The Fourth of July holiday weekend is one of my favorite times of the year.  Good food.  Good friends.  And the best time to sit back, relax and enjoy the celebrations lighting the sky around you. 

This year add to all that with an entertaining blog hop where you could win lots of reading related prizes.  AND it’s free to enter.  Just follow a few simple rules and be eligible to win various gifts from over 200 different blogs. 

Start right here.  From Friday, July 1st through Thursday, July 7th, friend me through Google Friend Connect over on the right hand column.  See?  Easy as making grandma’s hot apple pie.

Want a few more chances to enter?

+1 Friend me on Twitter
+1 Like my Facebook Author page
+1 Leave a comment on any post during this 7 day hop (+1 for commenting on more than one post)

***Leave a comment under this post letting me know which sites you are following AND LEAVE YOUR E-MAIL ADDRESS SO I CAN CONTACT YOU IF YOU WIN!!!!!***

Now to the good stuff.  What are you entering for???

1)      A $10 Amazon Gift Card (I’m sure you could use this to make a nice dent in your wish list file)



OR

2)      A $10 Starbucks Gift Card (the best place to sit and read a good book – or write one!!!)



Two different winners will be chosen randomly from the various entries and posted on Friday, July 8th. 

Have a wonderful HOLIDAY WEEKEND and I hope you enjoy the hop.

<3 Tami
