Fabulous Fall Books & GIVEAWAY!

Another season has passed, and (with summer being so dreadfully hot) I for one am grateful to welcome Autumn along with its turning leaves, pumpkin pies, apple cider and…NEW BOOKS! Below, the list of fall releases includes: biblical fiction, contemporary fiction, historical fiction/romance, sci-fi & fantasy, suspense & mystery, and young adult. You can browse and add to your “Books to Read” pile. Part of the reason I host this giveaway is to encourage people to leave reviews when they read a book. Authors need to hear from their audience, and you– the reader–need to be heard. So please, take a moment to review and say thanks or hello to those who create fiction. 🙂

As for the GIVEAWAY, two winners may choose one book each from the list of Fabulous Fall Books. To enter, please click on the link below! Continue reading “Fabulous Fall Books & GIVEAWAY!”
