Hot Books Blog Giveaway Hop - Signups

February 3-10, 2012

Hi kids! Nite Lite is hosting its first ever giveaway hop! The Hot Books Giveaway Blog Hop will feature "hot" books, generally noted by the book blogging community as 18+.

This can be anything from traditional romance, paranormal romance, YA, contemporary, erotica--anything with a romantic element is game.

This giveaway hop won't have too many rules but we do ask that all giveaways be books or book related (this does include gift cards from Amazon, etc. as well as purchases of books). You can throw in non-book items as long as a book is also included.

If you are a YA site that wishes to participate, you are welcome to do so as long as you don't think your readers will mind the occasional eyeful of... well... you know... hotness.

Ooh la la. Sign up for another hot hop at
Please link up via the Giveaway linky if you'd like to participate.

The code that you need to include in your blog post HTML is below. The place where you actually sign up is at the end of this post.
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.blenza.com/linkies/autolink.php?owner=frootjoos&postid=12Dec2011"></script>

In your post, please include the giveaway hop image as well as the link to the full list of participating blogs (so we can hop). If you want to receive an email with instructions the week before the hop starts, please fill out this short form.

When you link up, write your blog name and also include if your giveaway is US, US/Can or International. It should look something like: Read Now Sleep Later $15 Amazon GC (Intl)

If the images/content you are including in your giveaway are definitely for the more mature reader, please add the notation 18+ before the geographic marker. It should look something like RNSL Nite Lite The Harlot (18+) (US/Can). Blog hoppers can then visit your site at their discretion.

Please keep the process to enter your giveaway as simple as possible.

This hop has a limit of 4 entries per person: 1 mandatory entry and up to 3 optional entries. Your post needs to be up by midnight or reasonably soon after on February 3, 2012. (We mentioned some changes to the hop--unfortunately we cannot get them until after, so we will roll those changes out with a future blog hop.)

We highly recommend signing up for Rafflecopter -- they make collecting contest entries a breeze! ;) Tell them Alethea and Thuy sent you.

Here are some more buttons. If you make one, please let us know and we'll include it here + give you credit and a link back to your blog!

**Our hop rules were inspired by Inspired Kathy who hosts some awesome Giveaway Hops at I am a Reader, Not a Writer. She no longer allows Mature/Sexy/18+ giveaways on her clean, family-friendly hops, which we totally understand. We're happy to fill the void... so to speak ;D

We encourage those with family-friendly blogs to skip our hop and head over to hers!


  1. I hope I wasn't to late. I just found out about Kathy changing her policy. Suddenly I was no longer in the list after I signed up months ago. Anyway thanks for this. I'll be co-hosting an 18 & over hop in March.

  2. Is this still active and any idea of the dates yet?

    1. Hi Blue! Yes, the dates are now Feb 3-Feb 10. We'll update the post tonight and send out some reminders next week!


We love comments! They really make our day so please don't be shy and let us know what you're thinking.
