Escape With Dollycas Is 10 Years Old – Blogoversary #Giveaway – Day #1 @KensingtonBooks

10 years ago today this was my 1st post on Dollycas’s Thoughts on Blogger:

2010 RESOLUTIONS

1. BE A BETTER PERSON
2. START A BLOG
3. READ 140 BOOKS

After a few posts introducing myself and my TBR stacks, I reviewed my first book, The Cat, The Quilt, and the Corpse by LeAnn Sweeney.  I went on to have 796 posts before I moved the blog to WordPress on October 11, 2011. Since then I have added 3425 posts of which more than half have been reviews. In fact, since joining GoodReads in January of 2011, I have read 1904 books and reviewed all but a few that were read “just for fun”.

Through my blog, I have met so many amazing people, authors, publicists, bloggers and readers just like you reading this post. I am beyond grateful for all of these wonderful connections.

One group of fabulous people are the publicists from Kensington Books. Some have moved on and I miss them, but the current crew of Larissa, Michelle, and Lulu, have been so extraordinary. When I reached out to them about books for this week’s giveaways they were so supportive. Kensington Books will be partnering with me for most of the giveaways this week. I am thrilled to share their books with you all year long and so excited to share these giveaways!

So what better way to start off my 10th year than a 10 book giveaway!

Blogoversary – Giveaway #1

Welcome to my Blogoversary!

I started blogging as a New Year’s Resolution on December 31, 2009. Since then I have blogged about books, mostly mysteries, but also about my family. You readers have seen through my highs, like the arrival of my grandchildren, to the ultimate low, the death of my son this year on March 15. I thank you all so much for following me on this journey. I try to keep things upbeat and positive but the last 9 months have been heartbreaking. This blog has kept me going. I have committed to posting at least 1 post a day the past 6 years and the need to write those reviews, book tours and memes is what gets me out of bed each and every morning.  

To celebrate there will be 4 giveaways today! 

I absolutely love snowmen so they will be our hosts today!

BIG BLOGOVERSARY BLOWOUT!!!

BIG BLOGOVERSARY BLOWOUT BOX OF BOOKS!

BLOGOVERSARY 2014Back on December 31, 2009 my New Year’s Resolution was to start a blog. I had no idea what I was doing but Lori at Lori’s Reading Corner is a fantastic friend and she guided me along and got me started. At first I was just posting reviews of books I purchased or received from PaperBackSwap and random thoughts, then I moved on to some self-published authors,  but soon with Lori’s help I was able “meet” a couple of publicists and was receiving books faster than I could read them.  Dollycas’s Thoughts evolved into Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book in October of 2011. Now my main focus is mysteries but I do read most genres with the exception of Horror and Sci-Fi. Those just give me nightmares. Cozy mysteries are my absolute favorites.

I also was getting to know my UPS man very well as he was bring packages to my door several times a week. At one point he thought maybe I had on online shopping problem and may need an intervention but when I explained what they were and what I was doing we had a good laugh. He also delivered to the place I worked before my accident so we did know each other a little bit. He was quite worried about me and was shocked when I came to the door one day when he was making a delivery. He had heard the dismal first prognosis and was so happy to see how well I was doing. Sadly since our move 18 months ago I no longer have him making my deliveries but he did give our new delivery person a heads up so he knew he be making plenty of stops at our house.

Now I look forward to the books arriving each month and sharing my thoughts about them with you and sharing the books themselves with you too. My blog is now mostly about books but I do share some family stuff and still a few of random thoughts here and there too. I look forward to getting up every day and reading your comments. I wish I had time to respond to every one but please know I do read every single one.

To show you how much I appreciate you 2015 is going to be the year of the READER!!! Each month I will randomly choose a Fan of the Month to feature! That fan will receive a $5 Amazon Gift Card and will automatically win a book from one of the Cozy Wednesdays during their month.  Watch for the January Fan to be introduced tomorrow!! I also will have some other fun events throughout the year to get to know my readers better. If you have any ideas or suggestions just use the Contact Me tab above and let me know.

Now let me tell you about this

BIG BLOGOVERSARY BLOWOUT BOX OF BOOKS!

I have grabbed a pretty good size box and all the books shown in the graphic above are in the box ready to be sent to you. There is still room so I will add a couple of hardcovers, more paperbacks and just a bit of swag to fill the box. One winner will receive the box. Sorry U.S. Mailing Addresses Only.

The rules are simple – you must be a follower/fan of this blog.

There are no bonus entries.

Feel free to share the giveaway with your friends and family.
More readers are always a good thing!
