Loving the Reviews Challenge Introductory Post

Coming in February, Sniffly Kitty's Mostly Books and I here at Blkosiner's Book Blog will be hosting "Loving the Reviews Challenge". We invite you to join us- the concept is simple- you link up your reviews for the month of February, and we will pick winners.

Winners, you say? What do I have to do?
-Review books - it really is that simple. Any review you write counts as one entry into the contest! You will come and link your review- we will put up a post with a mister linky. The only thing we ask is to include the banner in your review- can be at the top or bottom.
-If you review a book by one of our Featured Authors you will get extra entries for the giveaway. 

How do I sign up?
-Fill out the FORM
-When choosing prize preference, please refer to list of what you can win below! If a prize is added later you would rather have, we will give a chance to confirm. 

What is a Featured Author?
We have a whole list of authors who will be guest posting here or on Sniffly Kitty's blog! We have some posting about our theme of love, some about writing, we are interviewing others-- it will be lots of fun.

So, what can be won?

What else do I need to know?

-Please make an introductory post using the banner- grab it below. Feel free to list books you intend to review, authors you are looking forward to hearing from, etc. Also, feel free to link on your sidebar, tweet, facebook, and tell your mom!
-If you do not have a blog, never fear. You can post your reviews on Goodreads, just make sure to link back here or to Sniffly Kitty's post. We will need a direct link (if you need help with that, let me know)
-On Feb 1st, we will post the full schedule, and the place where you will link your reviews. It will be the same on Sniffly Kitty and my blogs so you only enter your review once.
-This is open internationally. We will update the prize list above as we hear if it will be international or not. Just because it isn't today, doesn't mean it won't be tomorrow :)
