I'll announce the winner of the Awesome August Blog Hop tomorrow. But while you're waiting to see if your name is going to appear on JDP NEWS, you can start hopping all over again to win more prizes! Over 300 prizes, actually! Today begins the Back to the Books Giveaway Hop, sponsored by I Am A Reader, Not a Writer and Buried in Books.
This time around I'm giving away a copy of the YA novel, Flame-Coloured Tafetta, by Rosemary Sutcliff. This is the book that sent me on the hunt for more titles by Sutcliff and led to what is currently still my favorite book that I've read this year: The Eagle of the Ninth. Don't you love it when you stumble across wonderful new authors you never knew existed? Here's the blurb from the book jacket (this is a hardcover book):
But then Tom is captured by Mr. Farrington, who threatens to turn him over to the authorities. In a true act of loyalty, Damaris jeopardizes her own safety to rescue the mysterious young man and set him free once again.
If this sounds like a book you'd like to win, then leave me a comment telling me the name of a favorite new author you've read in the last 12 months. INCLUDE YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS SO I CAN CONTACT YOU IF YOU WIN.
