Are you ready for the who, what, where, when, why and prizes?! You are?! SWEET!! Because I'm bursting at the seams to tell you all!! ;)
Why YOU... and YOU... and YOU... and YES! Even the little old lady down the street dancing around in her bathrobe! ;)
What are we doing?
We're going to TAKE A CHANCE ON LOVE and have a Shannon Guymon aka Katie Lee O'Guinn Swoon Fest of course!! How could you have missed that at the beginning of my post?! Silly rabbits!! ;)
Where can you find this FANTABULOUS event?
Well... that's where things are going to be a little different this time around! It will be hosted from 3 different blogs. Yes... I said 3 different blogs! We will all have the same posts on our page each day but we thought that since we each have different followers and readers that we wanted to reach as many of you amazing readers as we can to participate in this wondertastical event! You can participate here on my blog. Or you can head on over to my amazing friend Kathy's Blog... Bookworm Nation. Or you can head on over to my other amazing friend Katie's Blog... Katie's Clean Book Collection. Or you can be like me and participate on all of them!! ;) Hehe.
When are we doing it?
It's starts tomorrow, March 2nd and ends Friday, March 27th! I can't wait! It really is going to be FANTABULOUS!
Why are we doing this?
Because Shannon is an absolutely AMAZING author that we all LOVE oh so very much!! She is always so supportive of her fans and truly cares about us!! What better way to show her how much WE support and care about HER then to honor her by giving her a Swoon Fest of her very own?! ;)
So what do we have in store for you?! Well I'm glad you asked!
Monday Munchies - We'll be sharing some fun, easy, yummy recipes that have been tested and LOVED by all who have devoured them!
Tuesday Trivia - We'll have some some questions for you to answer from each of her series.Hopefully they will intrigue you enough to want to read ALL of her books! Maybe not during Swoon Fest but at some point in time in the very near future! ;)
Wednesday's Gabbing with Guymon - Yes... Shannon will be participating and answering questions from her fans! We're trying to find an easy way for everyone who has a question to send them but we're also trying not to overwhelm Shannon with too many of them. Stay tuned for how to submit your very own questions!
Thursday Casting and Character Bios - I am happy to announce that we have cast almost all of Shannon's books! We had a BLAST doing it too! But there are still some that need to be done. So we thought we'd post some and then get ideas from everyone else on who THEY see as each character. Shannon is a HUGE fan of casting and I'm sure she'd LOVE to see some of your casting picks for her books!! So keep a close eye on Thursdays and make sure you join in on the fun!!
Friday Fun in Fircrest - What's more fun than prizes?! Each week we will have a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winner. All winners will be chosen using Rafflecopter. There will be different ways for you to earn points throughout the week so make sure you check it out when the event starts tomorrow! The prizes will be as follows: 1st - $20 Amazon Gift Card - 2nd - $15 Amazon Gift Card - 3rd - $10 Amazon Gift Card.
Another thing we will be doing differently this time around is that in order for a review to be eligible to earn points towards prizes it will need to be at least 100 words long. When you think about it, 100 words isn't all that much! Our hope is that with the reviews we will be able to get some good discussions going! I've been able to have some pretty awesome conversations and meet new people just by reading and loving the same books! It'll be awesome... I promise! Just this paragraph alone is 100 words! You can do it! ;)
And just like last time... in order to earn points ALL books need to be read in the month of MARCH! If they are NOT read in March your reviews will not be eligible for prizes! I know this can be hard to police but we are hoping that everyone will be honest and follow the very few rules we have for Swoon Fest. We have put lots of time and effort into this and we want it to be LOTS of fun for EVERYONE!
And there you have it folks! All the 411 for the first Swoon Fest of 2015! I hope everyone is as excited about it as I am!! Make your lists... check them twice... and TAKE A CHANCE ON LOVE!! Come join us tomorrow for Shannon's Swoon Fest!!
P.S. Stay tuned for my list of books that I'm going to attempt to read this month! Since I adore Shannon oh so very much I have decided to be rather ambitious! ;) Hehe.
