Gratitude Giveaways Blog Hop



This is the season of Gratitude, and the wonderful Kathy Habel has dreamed up a spectacular way for some of us to thank our loyal blog followers. She has put together another giveaway blog hop, only this time over 175 blogs will be participating! Yes, you heard me right...over 175 participating blogs, each giving away a book or book-themed prize! You'll have a little over one full week to visit each of the blogs and enter their giveaways, but remember...the goal of each blogger is to express thanks to their followers, sooo you will have to be a follower of each blog to enter the giveaway. Not to worry, though. If you're not a follower now, you can sign up at the time of entry!

So what is JDP NEWS giving away? Just the following. If it looks similar to what I gave away for the Spooktacular Giveaway Blog, you would be wrong. I've reversed many of the giveaways, so that, for example, instead of giving away a copy of my medieval romance, Loyalty's Web, this time I'll be giving away a copy of Illuminations of the Heart. Instead of an Illuminations of the Heart tote bag, I'll be giving away a Loyalty's Web tote bag. Etc.

Okay, so here's my giveaway list:

An autographed copy of Illuminations of the Heart
A Loyalty's Web tote bag
An Illuminations of the Heart mug
A Loyalty's Web notebook
A 14.5 oz Holly Wreath scented candle
And assorted Christmas candy 
(because although this is a Thanksgiving giveaway, 
Thanksgiving will be over by the time you receive your prize!)

Again, this is all included in one giveaway!

How can you enter to win the above? Simple. Become a follower of JDP NEWS via the Google Friend Connect feature in the sidebar. If you're already a follower, you are automatically entered in the contest, but you MUST LEAVE A COMMENT LETTING ME KNOW YOU ARE/HAVE BECOME A FOLLOWER AND INCLUDE YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS.

You can win bonus entries by doing any or all of the following:

+1 Bonus: Join my email list via the "subscribe by email" box below the "followers" box. Leave a comment letting me know that you have become a subscriber. If you are already subscribed (via the Feedburner box), leave a comment letting me know and it will count towards a bonus entry.

+1 Bonus: "Like" my Joyce DiPastena book page on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Joyce-DiPastena/34871759128?ref=ts, then leave me a comment letting me know 

+1 Bonus: Follow JDP NEWS via Networked Blogs in my sidebar, then leave me a comment letting me know

Note: The above entry is for USA entries only. I'll include international entries in a future giveaway.

Deadline for entries is 11:59 PM EST/8:59 PM EST on November 28th.

See below for links to the other 175+ blogs participating in the Gratitude Giveaways Blog Hop!
