Authors Blog Hop!

This is totally exciting because I think it's the first time I've participated in such a cool author hop, at least on such a scale. Thanks, Lady Amber, for the invite. I'm prepared to have a lot of fun! First I'll introduce myself to all you new visitors, and my fellow participating authors. I'm Cheri Chesley and I'm a writer and a mom. My first book, The Peasant Queen, which is YA romantic fantasy, was published by Cedar Fort in 2010. My other two novels in the series, The Wild Queen and The Tyrant King, were self published.

Since this Hop falls at the end of my multi-book blog tour, I wanted to be certain you had the link to the kick off that has all the participating blogs listed so you can keep up with the rest of the tour. CLICK HERE to see all the awesomeness.

If you haven't had a chance to look at all the incredible participants for this Authors Hop, you can find the list at the bottom of this post. Lady Amber has really outdone herself. 130 participants and counting! Be sure you check out the other blogs and get in on their giveaways as well as mine!

Now for the fun part: My contest. What do you need to do? How can you win? WHAT can you win?

I'm glad you asked. ;) First of all, Lady Amber has been awesome with helping me get a little more book attention lately, and I really appreciate all she's done. She brought my author page on Facebook up over 400 likes, which was so wonderful since I'd been stuck just under 400 forever. But I think there's room for a little more, so we're going to start there.

CLICK on over to my Facebook page and "like" it for One contest entry.

FOLLOW me on Twitter for One contest entry.

Leave a comment on my blog for One contest entry.

***For a 5 entry bonus (meaning you will get 5 bonus contest entries for a possible total of 8 entries), go to FIVE of the other authors participating in this contest and tell me something about their work. Do they write fantasy? Horror? Children's books? Share with me. You may want to enter their contests while you're visiting. :)

Isn't that wonderful? A single person can have up to 8 entries into my contest just by sharing a little bloggy love with my fellow authors. And with 8 entries your chances of winning the prize increases dramatically.

So, what is the prize? Signed copies of each of my 3 books, The Peasant Queen, The Wild Queen, and The Tyrant King, along with bookmarks, a $25 Amazon gift card, and a previously unpublished SNEAK PEEK into my next novel, The Lost Princess.

Excited yet? You'll get a chance to read something no one has read before. Well, except me of course. This isn't going to be the first chapter of The Lost Princess that I included at the end of The Tyrant King. This is something entirely different, something from deep within the story itself. And you're going to love it.

So what you waiting for? Start clicking, and be sure to leave a comment on this blog (which, incidentally, is good for ONE contest entry all by itself) telling me everything you've done and how many contest entries your efforts have earned you.

The contest ends 11:59 PM WEDNESDAY, JULY 10TH, so don't delay. I will be posting the winner on Friday, July 12th!

See you on the flip side.

What a great giveaway. Thank you so much for participating in this blog hop. It is great to review your work. I have liked your page, but cannot twitter on my pathetic little phone. I have been to so many of the pages, but here are my 5 favorites so far:
1-of course is the fabulous Lady Amber. Only she, with her awesomeness, could put all of this together.
2-Is the amazing Susan Griscom. I own signed copies of all her works.
3-Is Lizzy Ford as she is the author that started my journey into indie. I bought my Kindle for her.
4-Pam Carter Ripling....Her rafflecopter and blog page are hilarious!
5-Desiree DeOrto is awesome. I did not enter hers, tho, because I have already read and reviewed The Prophecy. A really awesome ebook with an amazing cliffhanger.

Hello I'm Tisha Starr, 128 on the Blog Hop list. I just wanted to drop by as many pages I can to introduce myself.

I see my book isn't quite the same as a lot of others but I did have youth (teens/young adults) in mind when I wrote it.

Thank you so much for participating in the Blog Hop! I LOVE these hops! I have been fortunate enough to have visited each blog so far on the hop, I am HOPING I will be able to get all of them in today! I truly thank you for your generosity in participating in this hop!

Thanks for the hop! I already liked your FB, but I did start following you on twitter (@PinkSpo0n) As far as the other bloggers on this tour, let's see what I can remember!!

1- Alexia Purdy writes fantasy, I especially like Ever After and Ever Fire! She creates a fantastic faery world.

2- Cameo Renae writes paranormal, including my favourite of all paranormal creatures - ANGELS! Loved these books.

3- CM Stunich is my favourite indie, and writes some majorly awesome NA books with a ragged realistic edge.

4- Jennifer Martinez seems to write a little of everything from paranormal to contemporary, and I'm actually reading her new release, Blossom, right now!

5- Jill Prand is a sweetie and just released her debut novel, Watch Me Walk Away fairly recently. It's a NA romance, and I actually was on her blog tour, it was a great time!

Woot! All from memory. //dance

Thanks for your giveaway hun, GL in your future works! (I was on your blog tours too! <3)
