Authors Around the World Kindle Fire H0P

Friday, July 27, 2012

I’m thrilled to be hosting this Authors Around the World Kindle Fire Blog Hop along with Courtney Vail. This author exchange is a way to showcase writers and their books, not to mention the places in which they live and find inspiration.

We have lots of prizes so do, go, see. For 25 points and a chance at the Kindle Fire, list all the countries in which the authors are located. 'Course that means a little hopping, which is manageable based on the number of writers on the hop. 

My giveaway will be a $10.00 Amazon gift card, so feel free to fill in the Rafflecopter down below for that. 

I’m featuring Jordyn Meryl, who writes Romance and Women’s Fiction. Jordyn’s featuring three novellas.
