Official Welcome Post and First Giveaway!

Yes my friends, welcome to the starting line of the "Beach Reads" Summer Challenge!

Today there will be two more posts going up later on. One will be a recommended reading/sponsors and prizes list. The other will be a calendar of events for the remainder of the week!

I've updated the challenge button! I realized that it didn't have the timeline dates or the host blog. If you already have the button can you please take a moment to update it on your blog? Thanks!

Let's get things started right!

So let's do a giveaway shall we? Up for grabs is the prize you'll see below.

Yes my friends, that there is a signed ARC of Ivy Devlin's Low Red Moon. *hears squees ensue* Yup! I've already read it (it's completely amazing) and so I'm passing it on to a new home to be enjoyed. As an added bonus, you will receive Mr. Octavio the Octopus! He's a one of a kind crochet octopus made by yours truly! He can protect your ARC as it travels through the mail, and of course be your reading buddy when he arrives! Look at him, he's so excited! Are you?

Now I'm sure you're asking, but Jessica how can we win this amazing prize?
