Seeking Books for Summer Giveaways


sarah_booksThe always-wonderful Sarah Reinhard is not letting her pregnancy or the fact that she’s busy writing books slow her down – she’s kindly offered to organize two upcoming book contests here at and we’re seeking your help if you are an author who would like to participate.

August will be the “Dog Days of Summer Catholic Fiction Giveaway,” featuring your favorite Catholic novelists and some that you’ll want to jump right in and read. The heat won’t matter when you are curled up with these books!

In September, we’ll host the “Back to School with Great Catholic Nonfiction Giveway,” an opportunity to win books by authors whose names belong in lights and whose work belongs on your bookshelf if it isn’t already.

If you’re an author, publisher, or potential donor, please contact me. Please email with your book donations.  Please include titles, 100-word blurbs, and cover images by July 19 for fiction and August 19 for nonfiction.  We hope these contests will be winners both for our readers who receive a great book and for the authors who are looking to spread the word about their work.
