Meet an Author Blog Hop Monday

Hello there, 

This week the bog hop is coming to you from Ireland, land of Leprechauns, Guinness, The Blarney Stone, Oscar Wilde, William Butler Yeats, Jonathan Swift, CS Lewis, U2, The book of kells, over four and a half  million people who love the craic… and me. :-)  This is my first time to host the blog hop. For those of you who’ve been joining in over the last few months, you know what to do. For anyone new to the hop, this is how it works.

For Readers -

Follow as many authors as you like. Just follow the Linky list and hop from author to author. The idea is to find as many "new to you" authors as you can, and hopefully some great new reading material as well.  Leave a comment as you hop from blog to blog!  We'd love to chat with you!

For Authors -

Have a book out?  Are you under contract for publication?  Make sure you join in the hop. This is a great way to network your blog and let readers know who you are. The more you promote the hop, the more successful it will be. Tweet, Facebook and blog. Let’s get the word out.

Follow the Meet an author Monday host (Carol Oates) along with any of the wonderfully talented authors on the list.

You will need to enter your name and blog url into the Linky tool.

Grab our super cute button and place it in a post. (THIS IS IMPORTANT!) If you don't create a post for the hop, your readers won't have a place to comment, and the hop will stop with you. So create a post, paste in the Linky code and start hopping!

The purpose of the hop is to meet "new to you" authors and discover great new reads. Follow as many authors as you can. Leave a comment and introduce yourself!

If you'd like to share the Linky list in a post on your blog ( Please do!) just follow the link and grab the code.

Check in tomorrow when I will be hosting Hannah Downing, author of Pieces of Us.

My short, Unfinished is now available free on Smashwords.


  1. Thanks for hosting, Carol! I don't know why the linky tool isn't working for me on my blog lately. I'm still trying to figure it out. Hope your Monday has been a good one!

  2. Oh sure, make me long even more for Ireland! I WILL get there one day. Thanks so much for hosting, and hey! In scrolling past the linky I see you posted the Three Daves review here too. :) Thanks so much! I'll get it all linked up at my site & blog too before the end of the week. And thanks for hosting the blog hop too.

  3. Thanks for hosting today, Carol! *waves from across the pond*
