You are cordially invited to join in the Utah Book Month fun!
Utah Book Month, which will take place in the month of August, is a celebration of the fantastic community of authors and book bloggers who reside in Utah. It was started by Natasha from Maw Books Blog (formerly called Utah Author Month), and is being organized this year by Suey from It's All About Books, Emily from Emily's Reading Room, Jessica from The Bluestocking Society, Enna from Squeaky Books, and myself!
We have lots of fun activities planned for the month: blogger-to-blogger interviews, Utah author interviews, mini-challenges, book giveaways, and more! There will be ways for both Utah bloggers and non-Utah bloggers to participate, so be sure to come and join us! :)
Sign-ups are open from now, until May 21st, 2012.
Here is a list of need-to-know items (which I shamelessly stole from Enna's post):
- If you are a blogger you do NOT have to live in Utah to participate, however, preference will be given to Utah bloggers.
- If you are an author, you MUST live in Utah to participate (or have a purty darn good argument for why you're a Utah author)
- The faster you sign up, the more likely you'll get your first choice of activity to host
- The hosts of the event will be coordinating author contact. So if you select "author interview" don't go running off and e-mailing authors. We've got that covered and we'll get you in touch with them.
- You have until 11:59pm on the 21st to sign up! That's only
two weeks1 1/2 weeks!
- THIS IS THE SAME FORM ON ALL THE HOST BLOGS! There are five of us hosting the event this year, and you only need to fill out this form ONCE.
- You can ask me questions directly, or e-mail UtahBookBloggers@gmail.com
- If you want the latest updates, be sure to follow @UtahBooks on Twitter!
August will be an awesome month! Sign up to experience it. :)
This is the same form that is on all five of the other host blogs, so if you have already signed up on another blog, then you don't need to fill this form out.
To kick-start the sign-ups, I am hosting a giveaway! This may or may not be an attempt to bribe you to join us. ;) Entrants are NOT required to sign up for Utah Book Month, although you totally should, because it's going to be awesome!
We have so many fantastic authors living in Utah, so it only made sense to have a giveaway that features a few of my favorites.
The winner will receive his/her choice of any TWO books written by any of the following Utah authors:
