Red Room's Summer Reading Giveaway
This contest involves registering on their site and leaving them a story, a poem, an anecdote, a podcast... what have you. It must feature a favorite summer reading experience. So it's not quite as easy as some of the others floating around out there, but it could be a lot of fun to sort through those memories you've got (and are hopefully making) and share one with the readers of Red Room.
Enter via this link. Good luck!

Sale at Changeling Press!
Go here to see what Changeling's got for you.
Rock N Read Benefit
I had this idea for a “literary Lollapalooza” of sorts, where bands and authors would share the stage. Alexa Young signed on to help, and this is what resulted.
So, if you happen to be in the L.A. area on July 13th from 3 to 6 pm, you’ll want to swing by Virgin Megastore at 6801 Hollywood Blvd in Hollywood to take in musical performances by Lucid Nation, Noah Stone, Norfolk, Dirty Spanglish, and Moth Eaten and readings by N.L. Belardes, Cherry Cheva, Megan Crane, Kim Culbertson, Stephanie Kuehnert, Alyson Noël, Rebecca Woolf and Alexa Young.
If you’re not in California, there are still many ways that you can be involved. You can grab a banner from our website and help us spread the word. And if you are an author or musician, we are offering a unique promotional opportunity. Our event is free, but we’d like to raise money for Virgin Unite Charities so we are raffling off five identical prize packs. If you’d like to donate five (signed if possible) copies of your book, CDs, or other promotional items, we would love to have them! Contact me at stephanie at stephaniekuehnert dot com if you’re interested! I can’t tell you how excited I am about this amazing event!
(Although this is pretty shamelessly lifted from Caren Johnson's blog, I did it because I think it's a great thing to be involved with. I hope some of you will help out, too.)
The Memory of Water
But go on and read her thoughtful review. It's really wonderful.]
You have until June 30, and it's only for folk in the US and Canada. Darn postal rates...
Here is the link.
Driving Sideways by Jess Riley
After posting a review of Jess Riley's Driving Sideways, Julie was lucky enough to land an interview with Ms. Riley -- and to entice you to read it, she's offering a signed copy of Driving Sideways. You shouldn't need the enticement; it's another good interview. (Because we try to politely overlook any bad ones, you see.)
You only have until this Friday, so don't dawdle. Use this link.
This time, it's a set of books from David Weber. Two sets, in fact, to North American people only. The books are Off Armageddon Reef and By Schism Rent Asunder, both from the author’s Safehold series.
Pretty cool! Use this link to enter.
Read the directions; she wants you to talk about Carlin. But if you have a good pork chop recipe, I'm sure she'd appreciate it. (and yes, I totally made that last part up.)
Natasha Rhodes Interview and Contest
There's a question Amber would like you answer in order to enter the contest. Have some fun with it -- and the interview as well!

Scott Douglas experiments with wikis
A few years ago, I wrote a little book called The Library Tree. It is a whimsical library folktale of sorts, and now I'm giving it away! Some of you have already bought and read this book, and I thank you for your support; there's still a couple bound copies left, and if you'd really like one, then go to my Web store and buy it...but honestly, I'd be happier if you simply download and read it free and told all your friends about it!
The book is also licensed under the Creative Commons; you can edit it, change it, rewrite it...basically do whatever you want to it. The only thing you can't do is sell it for profit.
Why am I doing this? Call it an experiment, really. Plenty of people have started non-fiction Wiki efforts. How many people have started wiki fiction books? And this is the perfect book to start it with--it's short and it's a folktale (and folktales are frequently changed as they're passed down through the ages).
I'm thinking this is a very cool idea. Watching it should be fascinating.
Read more about it at Scott's blog.
More about Gail Z. Martin
Check it out here.
Also, be sure to check out the interview he's done with her.
eta: I had the wrong book title in there. Thanks to Gail for fixing my mistake!

But... The Blood King is the second volume. So you'll need to get the first anyway.
Enter the contest through this link, and be sure to swing by your favorite independent bookstore to get caught up on the earlier installments of this great-sounding series.

From Dewey at The Hidden Side of a Leaf
Hachette Book Group USA has teamed with her to to host a big books giveaway.
There will be five winners, and each winner gets a box of fourteen new books (listed below).
1. One drawing today: If you’re interested, just say so in the comments and I will use a random number generator to choose a winner on Saturday.
2. One drawing next week: You’ll see another post next week, with another chance to win.
3. Three random drawings during the Read-a-thon (Saturday June 28th): By random, I mean the drawings will occur unannounced at three times throughout the read-a-thon. The time periods in which you can put your name in the hat on that day will be very short, an hour or two each. You don’t have to be a participant to win, but participating or following the event closely will mean you’re more likely to notice when the drawings happen.
4. I’m afraid the contest is only open to residents of the U.S. or Canada.
Each prize box will contain a new copy of ALL 14 of these
The Monster of Florence by Douglas Preston
The Preacher and the Presidents by Nancy Gibbs
Swine Not? by Jimmy Buffett , Helen Bransford

I am hosting my first contest on my blog. My blog is called Reading In Appalachia. I have decided that I have neglected my growing collection of books that I keep planning to read. So I am posting a link to my bookshelf and my blog readers can look through it, find a book they would like to have and leave me a comment with the title. I will randomly select from the comments, read that book and then send it to the winner. Right now the contest ends on June 25th, winner announced June 26th. If it seems like people are enjoying it I may have it as a monthly thing. Right now I am just testing the waters with the first contest.
Go on and help turn it into a success! You and Icedream can read some really cool stuff, and isn't that part of what book communities are all about?

Sit back and get ready...

Laura's following that up with The Last Real Season, by Mike Shropshire. Again, she's got five copies of this for US households only. The deadline is June 15, and you can read more and enter here.

This week, you get to choose your own book (for $25 or less, excluding shipping). Go on and throw your name in Katrina's cool hat.
Yeah. Use that link. Entering here won't do you any good. Sorry.
Washington's Lady, by Nancy Moser is the name of the book. Reflections is the blog. And yep, she's got a question for you to answer in order for your entry to count. Tell her what recently released book you're looking forward to reading. If you don't have something in mind but are impatiently waiting for something, you can name that, too.

It's David Baldacci's The Whole Truth. Two copies, in fact, for US and Canadian folks only. (Sorry everyone else!)
There's a hoop to jump through -- you have to leave a link to a book blog. Now, now, no panic allowed: You've got six in front of you. Not only can you leave a link to Win A Book (that'd be the blog you're currently reading), but you can link to any of us who host this place. I, of course, prefer anything with the West of Mars name on it, but I probably won't check up on you and hunt you down and ... umm...
You get the point. Six easy links for you... and that's before you go troll our blogroll...

Over at BookRoomReviews...
This is another new one to me. It's The Safety of Secrets, by Delaune Michel. This copy is an ARC -- Advance Reader's Copy -- and be sure to click on the book cover to read the review. After all, how else will you know if it's something you want to read?
