I am pleased to announce that I am hosting my first blog hop as part of the 2nd annual Blogger Book Fair - February 7th - 10th - The World For a Shilling (and Books for a Buck!)

Savor the Savings

See full hop list with book covers at Shop the Hop.

Better Than Chocolate Pre-Event Giveaway
Thank you for helping spread the word!

- 10 Winners

- Choose any 99 cent e-book featured in the hop
- Winners will be chosen February 7th so that they can look through the hop titles and let me know which one they want. I'll be gifting these through whichever online retailer the author is selling through.
- Winner must choose an e-book before the end of the event February 9th.

Hop Rules for Authors:
Rather than do a linky list, I'm collecting info. ahead of time and will organize titles by genre. Participating authors will be emailed the full list with hyperlinks at the beginning of February for easy copying and pasting.
- Authors must list book(s) for 99 cents at one or all of the following online book retailers: Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and/or Smashwords February 8-9, 2013. This means changing your price BEFORE this date so that it will update in time for the event dates. (Reminder: Amazon takes up to 12 hours, make changes early to be on the safe side.)
- Authors need to use the 'Better Than Chocolate' graphic in their post on February 8, 2013.
- Book(s) offered during the event should normally cost more than 99 cents. This is a discount event for books usually listed over the price of 99 cents (not a hop to highlight books that are always listed at 99 cents). But! Feel free to mention other books you may have listed free or at 99 cents in your hop post so long as you have one book specially discounted for the event.
- Make sure to include a purchase link in your post (and check that the price has updated to 99 cents before the event).
- Include the full list of participants at the bottom of your post during the event or include a link back to the post with the full list of event participants. (I will email all participants a Word doc all ready to copy and paste into a post.)

The sign-up form is now closed. Please check out the event titles at Shop the Hop.

    1. Thanks Sheena - I'm looking forward to snatching up these deals, myself. Mwa,ha,ha

      I promise to review anything I read as thanks to the participating authors for the super savings!

  2. Hey Nikki, I signed up as I'm hoping all my buy links will be active before the end of Jan. If I have any problems I'll let you know.

    1. Yay, Kim! You can bet your bootstraps I'll be snapping that one up!

      Hmmm, I should do more of these so I can reap the benefits of great books for bucks. Mwa,ha,ha. ;)

    2. lol to the evil laugh! I'm looking forward to grabbing some great books, too.

  3. This sounds like fun, can't wait to see all the authors you get!! Better make room on my Kindle! :)

    1. Thanks for signing up for the email reminder, Danielle. It's going to be one fun - guilt free - shopping spree! ;)

  4. This is great! I hope you do it again. my first book is already 99cents and my second book comes out the day of the hop. lol. So I don't think I will be able to participate this go around. But I'm looking forward to snatching up some great deals!

    1. Thanks for checking it out, Ashley. If a lot of authors and readers get involved and take advantage of the event I'll definitely consider hosting another.

  5. Great idea! I usually miss out on these things so I'm excited I found this! I'll be putting both my books on sale and grabbing a bunch of deals too. ;-)

  6. Hi This sounds interesting I can offer vouchers for my books on smashwords. Wolf Sirens

    1. Hi Bob:

      No event plans at the moment. Switching gears to work on getting books written instead. ;)

      Thanks for stopping by.

  8. I haven’t checked in here for some time as I thought it was getting boring, but the last few posts are good quality so I guess I will add you back to my everyday bloglist. You deserve it my friend
