A Giveaway and Some Awards

Last month, I interviewed author Linda Weaver Clarke, a prolific author of historical fiction. Now she's hosting a special giveaway on her blog. Here are the details directly from this author:
"Hello everyone! My last book in this series, Elena, Woman of Courage, has just been released. As a celebration, I'm having a free book give-away for the first book in this series: Melinda and the Wild West. This book was a Semi-finalist for the “Reviewers Choice Award 2007.” Go to my blog and leave a comment on the Elena, Woman of Courage Press Release along with your e-mail address. I will announce the winner on my birthday: Oct 2nd."
Good luck!

I received the Let's Be Friends award from Velvet of vvb32 reads--thank you so much! Here's the description of the award:

"Blogs that receive the Let’s Be Friends Award are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers."
Since it's BBAW, I will abide by the rules (more or less) and give out several of these to fellow book bloggers. Some of you probably have gotten this award already, maybe even multiple times. Nevertheless, we read the same books. Or plan to. We bump into each other on book blog tours. We join the same challenges. We leave comments on each others' blogs. So let's be friends:

Amanda from The Zen Leaf
Becky from Becky's Book Reviews
Carl from Stainless Steel Droppings (I can picture this on his blog--LOL!)
Kathy from Bermudaonion's Weblog
Laura from Laura's Reviews
Mee from Books of Mee
Naida from The bookworm
Stephanie from Stephanie's Written Word
Veens from Giving. . . Reading - A Chance...!!!

Congratulations to each of you! I hope you're enjoying BBAW. Don't forget to visit Linda Weaver Clarke's blog to enter her book giveaway!
