Summer Splash Blog Hop: July 23 – July 31

Here at Licensed to Thrill, we’re always looking for new ways to, well, thrill readers. We’re trying something new this week just for fun and to jazz up your summer reading adventures.

Summer Splash Blog Hop Begins Today!

ENTER to win several prizes listed below!

Explore works by 80 Indie Writers around the world and enter giveaway contests at each of our blogs. At the main site you can enter to win several Grand Prizes including Kindle Fires!




This is my first blog hop ever so bear with me as I learn how this works.

The point of events like this is discover new writers and new blogs by teaming up and directing readers around the web to participating blogs. We also suck you in by offering TONS of prizes. At the central website you’ll find links to all of the participating blogs and how to enter to win the GRAND PRIZES.


The theme of the Summer Splash Blog Hop is fiction, so many authors are offering free copies of their books — get excited for the opportunity to check out these indie authors! Some bloggers are getting creative, though, and offering related things like manuscript critiques and book formatting if you’re an aspiring author or jewelry and other swag if you’re a swag-loving reader. I even saw one author setting up a scavenger hunt to help you get acquainted with her blog 🙂

I’ll be running a raffle to give away my Best Selling e-Books and Character Naming Opportunities in upcoming titles! Here’s the list of my prizes:

    • 5 sets of 4 ebooks in the Judge Wilhelmina Carson Series
    • 5 sets of 3 ebooks in The Hunt for Reacher Series
    • 5 sets of 2 ebooks in The Jenny Lane Series
    • 5 copies of the first ebook in the new Jess Kimball Series 
    • 2 autographed copies of Don’t Know Jack in paperback
    • 3 character naming opportunities in upcoming Diane Capri books


    • summer splash blog hop, amazon kindle giveaway, book giveaway, fiction, indie authors


That’s a lot of stuff! I want to be generous AND I want to offer you prizes you can’t get anywhere else!! I’ve never done a blog hop before. I’m excited for the opportunity it offers to connect with new readers, and I want to make sure everyone knows how grateful I am that they’re participating and supporting indie authors.

What about the GRAND PRIZES?

Every author chipped in a few bucks to bring some really cool prizes to participating writers and readers. At the main Blog Hop site, you can enter to win a Kindle Fire, Amazon gift cards, Kindle Covers, and more reader-ly things!

Check it all out! And look for the logos on other writers’ blogs to join in. You can also follow the Summer Splash Blog Hop on Twitter:  #SUMMERHOP

Huge thanks to author Cheryl Bradshaw for organizing the hop! It looks like a LOT of work, and we’re all grateful for it 🙂

    Hi Diane!

    I just finished your two Reacher short stories. I think you do very well creating characters that live and breathe. I want to read your Judge Wilhelmina books, since you do so well with strong female characters.

    You’re offering great prizes here!
