Sci-Fi Summer #Readathon - Mid-Event Check-In #SciFiJune

We are at mid-event! Can't believe how time is flying! Wait a minute...yes, I can. I'm trying to stay as involved as I can with the readathon, but with my move looming ever closer (it has now been moved up by two weeks due to my son's college starting two weeks earlier because of COVID-19). Dealing with buying the new house and selling the current house. Plus, all the packing. Whew! A LOT!

How is the reading going? Hope you're getting in some good sci-fi (or fantasy) reading. Let me know in the comments, or share a link to your update. 

In case you missed it, the prize page is here

That's all for now. I hope you continue to enjoy the readathon. Happy reading!

Sci-Fi Summer #Readathon - #Prizes #SciFiJune

This is the giveaway/prize promotion page for all the prizes being given away for readathon participants. At the end of this post, you will find details regarding how the prizes will be awarded at the conclusion of the readathon.

Note: The author of the book donated would greatly appreciate a review, if you win, on your blog and/or social media and/or on Goodreads, Amazon. Thank you! (This is not required to win.)

Prizes from Ginger at Turn the Page

The Birthing Tree By Ginger Schenck - One autographed print copy (US Only)

In The Birthing Tree, Annie starts to unravel the connection between her past growing up on a haunted farm and the bizarre road trip she finds herself on. For weeks, dreams and intuition, have called to her urging her to leave small-town life and strike out on a road trip to find herself. Pulled by an invisible force, she finds herself in the small northwestern town of Sutter, South Dakota with an unlikely band of confidants. She doesn't unravel her past but she does find something. It's old, with ancient desires.

In the process, she discovers the world she knows exists alongside another one. A reality that most people ignore. There is a darkness within the light, on the edges of humanity; it lingers at the boundary of consciousness. Hidden by denial, there is a creature that watches and waits. When Annie’s very existence threatens it, the dance of desire and hunger is overwhelming.

About the AuthorGinger Schenck lives in Missouri. She loves traveling, exploring haunted places, and collecting stories. The Birthing Tree, a paranormal adventure, is her first novel. Paranormal investigations and growing up on a haunted farm fuel her imagination. Many of the episodes from her childhood are woven into her writing. Her second novel, Dark Dealings, is scheduled for publication in August 2020, followed by the second book in The Birthing Tree Series, New Orleans Calls, which will be released in October 2020.

Giveaway Details
This is a readathon participant only giveaway. To be eligible, you must have signed up, participated and added a link to the official readathon wrap-up post (I will give everyone until Monday, July 6th at 11:59 pm CDT to complete their wrap-ups). We no longer use a linky for wrap-ups. There will be a Google form on the readathon wrap-up post where you will enter your info, your wrap-up link, and answer yes/no on whether you want to win a prize or not. We have a total of 4 prizes. This means there will be 4 winners. I will award prizes on a first come, first served basis. I will draw the 4 winners with random.org and email all 4 at the same time. The first person who emails me back with their choice gets that prize. I will mark off the prizes as they are taken. Winners will be chosen after the wrap-up post deadline (see above).

Sci-Fi Summer #Readathon - Engage! #SciFiJune

Time for a fun month of science fiction reading (or fantasy, if that's your poison)! 

Don't forget that you can participate even if you don't have a blog. Just link up with your Goodreads, Facebook, Twitter or Instagram (and just post your updates from whichever venue you choose) AND don't forget to interact with us in our groups on Facebook and Goodreads, and we're also on Instagram! If you have any questions about updates, etc., feel free to ask. I will be posting a mid-event check-in here, and I will do my best to interact across social media.

I have received a couple of awesome prize donations from a very generous author, and I'll also be offering a couple of prizes, as usual. I'll have the prize page posted by the end of the first week.     
Social media hashtag across all platforms - #SciFiJune (you can also use #Readathon).

If you have any questions about how things work, check out the guidelines tab in the menu or the sign up post, or you can always leave me a comment. This is the same linky used for sign-ups so if you do a starting line/goal post, just add your link again, but be sure to put "goal post" beside your name, i.e. Michelle/True Book Addict (goal post). 
Note: If you're just signing up, you can do it here on this post. It's the same linky.
