Happy Sunday and Happy Valentine’s Day! We often launch our Inspy Romance Birthday Bash on Valentine’s Day, but this year we launched our giveaway month a couple of days early. It’s Valentine’s morning in Australia and my husband is cooking bacon and eggs for breakfast. A lovely way to start the day before we head out to church.
I enjoyed recording the Birthday Bash podcast/YouTube episode with Elizabeth and Valerie. It was great to see the Grand Prize and paperback books – plus imagine how nice the paperbacks smell. A big part of the reading experience for me is the sensory experience, and I do love reading paperbacks. I love the convenience of my Kindle, but I will never give up reading print books.
Being an Aussie, the International Prize bundles are always an exciting part of the Birthday Bash. Readers who live outside the US often miss out on being eligible for print book giveaways. Our generous Inspy Romance authors are offering two prize bundles for non-USA readers. We order the international prize books from The Book Depository – which delivers to most countries. Don’t forget to click the link on the sidebar to register if you’re an international entrant.
Our Grand Prize includes a Kindle Fire – which I haven’t seen in-person because it’s not available in Australia. It’s a wonderful prize bundle that offers many hours of comfortable reading with eight paperbacks, a cute silver spoon bookmark, and other goodies.
