Book Giveaways | Signed Books + Swag

Hello, readers. Happy Sunday! Welcome to Finding Wonderland. Our blogoversary month giveaways continue today with not one but TWO fun giveaways. So, let's not waste time discovering what those are.
Today we are spotlighting authors Dani Pettrey and Melissa Tagg, which is a great match since both have books published with the fabulous folks at Bethany House. I'm even more excited to host this little giveaway for the following reason. In response to asking if they'd be willing to sign one of their books as a prize, both Dani and Melissa kindly offered to help Finding Wonderland celebrate its blogoversary, and send one winner (per giveaway) a winner's choice (from books listed below) signed copy + some fun swag of one of their respective novels. 
Thank you so much Dani and Melissa. I'm excited about these giveaways since both have a wonderful talent as authors create unique and wonderful stories.
 Let's take a look at the specifics of today's featured books.

+ Submerged (Alaskan Courage, Book 1)
+ Shattered (Alaskan Courage, Book 2)
+ Stranded (Alaskan Courage, Book 3)
+ Silenced (Alaskan Courage, Book 4)
+ Sabotaged (Alaskan Courage, Book 5)
+ Cold Shot (Chesapeake Valor, Book 1)
+ From the Start (Walker Family, Book 1)
+ Like Never Before (Walker Family, Book 2)
*You can find my reviews of ALL of these books in the "book review" archives.
And now let's get the rule details out of the way. (If you're a pro in giveaway's around here, just skip to the good bit: the widget!)
The giveaway(s) is open to US readers. The prize will be a Paperback copy, unless otherwise noted (US readers might have a paperback option). I do ask that anyone who leaves a comment under "anonymous," please leave the same name you enter into the widget in your comment - it's not easy to try and match comments when there is no name and in fairness to everyone else, I want to be able to be sure everyone who used the Rafflecopter correctly has a fair chance at winning against those who abuse it - there have been a few people I could not verify. So please, I don't mean to overwhelm, but just keep this in mind when entering future giveaways. I'd sure appreciate it! Winner(s) will have 48 hours to respond to the email notification (you'll be contacted at the email address in the Rafflecopter form) before another winner is randomly chosen.
To be entered in the giveaway, just enter as much or as little as you like into the Rafflecopter widget, which you'll find down below. The Giveaway ends August 14th. Happy Rafflecopter-ing.

  1. What a great giveaway! Thank you so much :)
    Currently reading an ARC copy of "The Flaming Sword" by Heather FitzGerald, and have many book on my TBR. I have read "Like Never Before" by Melissa Tagg, and adddooorrreed it so much! I would love to read more of her books, as well as Dani Pettrey's!

    1. How do you like The Flaming Sword? I've not read anything by that author. I just started reading The Beautiful Pretender by Melanie Dickerson. :)

    2. I'm enjoying it! It's the second book in her series "The Tethered World". It's very much fantasy, and there are a couple things I'm a little uncomfortable with (I generally prefer magic-less fantasy), but her writing is so good, and the plot is really engaging, so I enjoy her books! Oh I read that a month or so ago! Another great book. :) I hope you enjoy it! Have you read Melanie Dickerson's "The Huntress of Thornbeck Forest" too? I simply adored that book!

    3. Thanks for entering, Raechel. I'm glad you liked Melissa's novels; aren't they delightful!? I'll boldly say this: you'll love the rest of her books too if you enjoyed Like Never Before. :)

  2. Awesome giveaway! I've not read any of these yet, but several are on my list and now - all are! :) Thanks so much for the chance to win! Have a Blessed day!

    1. YAY! A good TBR is the best kind of list, right!? :) Best of luck - and thank you for entering, Wenona.

  3. This is an AWESOME Giveaway, Because I LOVE Any books by Dani Pettrey, and I Am SO EXCITED She has a *NEW* book out!! And I have not read Any of Melissa Tagg's books, yet; but from the synopsis of the bpoks I've seen, I just KNOW I would LOVE them as well!! Thanks for this AMAZING opportunity!! God Bless!!:-)

    1. I'm glad you think so. Dani's books are amazing. (Including her newest!) Melissa's are darling as well, especially if you like sweet romantic novels. Happy reading - and thanks for joining the fun!

  4. I just started Mistletoe Kisses by Janet Lee Barton. It seems to be a cute read so far!

    1. I've not heard of that one, Karen, but considering I enjoy reading a Christmas book or two during the season, it sounds like a great one to look up. :)

  5. Happy blogoversary, Rissi! :)

  6. Ah, two of my favorite authors! Thanks for this fantastic giveaway! :D

    I'm currently reading "No Other Will Do" by Karen Witemeyer and "Distortion" by Terri Blackstock.

    1. Thank you for joining the fun, Aerykah. It's so fun to feature two amazing authors, and I'm grateful to them for joining in!

      Ooo, I remember really liking Terri's mystery novel. Hope you do too. :)

  7. I am reading Cold Shot by Dani Pettrey! Reading is my all time favorite thing to do, that is when I am not working.

    1. Cold Shot is amazing, Danie! I hope you are/did enjoy it. Definitely made me all the more anxious for book two in Dani's new series this winter. :)

  8. Thank you for the giveaway! These are definitely two of my favorite authors. I just finished Fetching Sweetness by Dana Mentink yesterday which I would definitely recommend. I started Hope Harbor by Irene Hannon today.

    1. They're two of my favorites as well, Melissa. Cannot wait to read more from them (Melissa in September, Dani this winter). Glad you like their stories as well. I've seen Dana's novels around the blogosphere but am not sure I've read them. Thanks for the recommendation! Also, Irene's novels are also fabulous. Thank you for joining the fun. :)

  9. I haven't really read anything by either of these authors, though I have seen their books around and keep thinking I will pick them up someday.;)

    1. They're both SO good, Amanda. I think at one time, Dani's first book was free on Kindle (not sure if it still is *goes to check*). YAY! It still is free on Kindle if you'd want to snag it. Also Melissa's Walker family novella is free via Kindle. :) It's short but it gives you a great idea of whether or not the books are in your reading preference (I think they would be :D).
