John 3:16 Marketing Network Giveaway-Blog-Hop May 7-May 14, 2012


Welcome to the 1st John 3:16 Giveaway Blog Hop! As one of the members of this great network of Christian Authors, I am excited to participate in this event! We have come together this week to showcase our books and to give you, our readers, a chance to win some great prizes as you "hop" from blog to blog. 

A different prize is offered at each blog site (no purchase necessary). 

However, if you want to win one of two Kindles that the network is giving away, the only requirement is that you sign up for the John 3:16 ezine newsletter (Located at the top right side column of this site, the John 3:16 blog site).

At the other blogs, authors may require that you leave a comment (and a valid email address) so they may contact you if you win a prize offered on their blog site. 

May I also suggest that you show your love and appreciation to each blog host by either following them on Twitter, or "liking" them on Facebook or even subscribing to their blog (or joining). It won't help your odds of winning a prize but I know each author would be thrilled and very encouraged! 

In addition to signing up for the John 3:16 Ezine, by clicking on the book cover for Taste and See (below), you can receive the FREE Kindle book. Taste and See is an anthology of first chapters by over sixty of our authors.

Notice on the upper right-hand column, we have a mobile app for the blog hop. Download the app on your Smartphone and you can hop from blog to blog via your iPhone or Android! 


Sunday and Monday, May 13 and May 14.
