Leap Into Indie Giveaway Hop


Paranormal Wastelands


Hi guys, welcome to Leap Into Indie giveaway hop, hosted by Paranormal Wastelands and Can't Put It Down. There's been a lot of talk about self-publishing lately, and even though there are still people who resist this trend, it cannot be denied that there are some pretty amazing self-published works out there. We all adored Angelfall, didn't we? And, incredibly enough, Christopher Paolini self-published Eragon before Knopf picked it up.







Unfortunately, we had to chose just one book to give away this time, and since we both absolutely adored Flat-Out Love and it's available on The Book Depository, that's what you can enter to win today. Flat-Out Love is one of the very few books on my 'books that changed me shelf', one of my favorite 2011 releases and even one of my favorite books of all-time. Everyone who knows me knows that I rarely read contemporary romance, but I'm so glad I decided to read this one. If you're interested in our reviews, just follow the links:

As always, thank you all so much for stopping by. Make sure to visit other blogs and enter their giveaways too, and of course, good luck to all!

  1. Oh my gosh, this is such a great idea! I love indie authors so much because they really rock the world with deciding to self-publish -- and you're definitely right! There are so many awesome self-published books out there! :) I've heard amazing things about Angelfall and Flat-Out Love, and I'm excited to read them both (especially considering how much you loved Flat-Out Love)!

    Thank you so much for the amazing giveaway, you two!! And I'm really glad that you're feeling better, Maja -- we're excited to have you back! :) <3

    1. Oh, my God! The fever must have burned something really important in my brain. But no, I didn't think you were a lunatic. After all, the world Iwant to visit has zombies and people shower in bleach, hon. :D Who am I to judge?

  24. I'm so glad you're putting a spotlight on these books. I loved Angelfall and Flat-Out-Love. I even signed on for the enhanced edition project Jessica Park has going on for Flat-Out-Love. I can't wait to see how it turns out. :)

  25. Wow! I had not heard of Flat-Out-Love, but reading your reviews makes me realize that it's a must read for me. I'm a huge indie author fan, and I'm following a slew of them now. My reading life has been enriched phenomenally because of them, so I thank you so much for this wonderful blog hop, and broadening my horizons even more!

    If you haven't read Unlovable by Sherry Gammon yet, it's a very realistic story of a young woman in a very dysfunctional life.

    If you like paranormal, I'd recommend Bonnie Bernard's Midnight Hunter Trilogy. I couldn't put it down!
