I'm pleased to announce that I'll be participating in two upcoming blog hop giveaways: Splash Into Summer Giveaway Hop and the Literary Giveaway Blog Hop. I'll be offering an Amazon.com gift card valued at $15 during the Splash Into Summer Giveaway Hop, scheduled for May 25 - May 31. This hop is being hosted by I'm A Reader, Not A Writer and Page Turners Blog.
I'll be offering paperback copies of The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton and The Secret Garden by Francis Hodgson Burnett during the Literary Giveaway Blog Hop, scheduled for June 25 - June 29 (books to be shipped from The Book Depository). This particular hop is being hosted by Leeswamme's Blog.
