WHO'S YOUR HERO GIVEAWAY BLOG HOP!


Welcome to the
WHO'S YOUR HERO GIVEAWAY HOP


This month we're celebrating the men and women (and animals too!) that rock a uniform--whichever uniform that may be. Military, Police, Firefighter and all others who serve and protect. So...Who's Your Hero? Stop by each blog for a giveaway and to find out who OUR favorite fictional and real life heroes are...

I have so many book heroes, both hero and heroine, that it would be hard to pick just one. I love to imagine the lives of those book heroes and all the wonderful things they've accomplished in the stories I love so much. And it's true that you can live a thousand plus lives by enjoying a great book and experiencing the lives of those in it.

But it needs to be said, there are real life heroes too, that make this world a better place and I just wanted to give them a shout out, weather it be the moms and dads that raise their kids with love and strength, to the police, military, fire fighters and anyone else who puts on a uniform to make the world a safer place, to those who entertain and keep our minds occupied or those who just do the best they can through being good people or performing random acts of kindness to see a smile on someone else's face. "It takes all kinds to make a world go around". And it takes heroes in every fashion to aid in that.

For this hop giveaway, I'm offering up...
FIRST PLACE WINNER - a SIGNED pocket paperback of FALL HARD (a Seals Undone Novella) by Zoe York, a SIGNED pocket paperback of FALL OUT (a Seals Undone Novella) by Zoe York and a SIGNED paperback of CHICAGO (Sky Romance) by A.J. Harmon. Included in this prize is some random swag I've picked up at signings. Some of it's signed, some of it isn't.

SECOND PLACE WINNER - $10.00 Amazon Gift Card
THIRD PLACE WINNER - $10.00 Amazon Gift Card

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to visit the other blogs in the linky below to enter their giveaways as well!

    1. I love your pick, Linda. Cancer is an evil disease and it's crippling but to be brave and strong enough to fight it definitely deserves hero status, for both the patient and those who surround them with love and patience. May your hubs be cancer free in the near future and may you both live long and happy lives. You guys are in my thoughts! <3
