The Last List Blog Hop

Last List Blog Hop BadgeThe Last List Blog Hop

This is an unconventional blog hop but we sincerely hope some generous bloggers would be awesome enough to help us out with it.

As most of you know, Egmont recently closed its doors, leaving its YA and MG’s List authors in a bad situation. Anyone who knows anything about publishing knows that this is a huge blow to the authors and the books they’ve worked so hard on.

We thought to ourselves, what can we do to help? And maybe some of you are doing the same.

Thus The Last List Blog Hop was born.

What’s it About?

Helping to promote the books for these authors going through an extremely tough time. There will be content provided by authors as well as some swag for the blogs to giveaway. You can check out the Tumblr for the Last List here.

What Can You Do?

If you have a book blog:

Sign up to the blog hop and chose which book you want to promote. There are Q&A’s and guest posts available from the authors but there is a limit on these so leave a comment requesting your top 3 choices if you want it and we’ll try and allocate accordingly. You could also review a book for the date.

Please try to use Rafflecopter for your giveaways so that it’s easy for people to enter.

If you don’t have a book blog:

You can still participate by visiting the blogs on the sign up and supporting them! Enter the giveaways and win yourself a copy of one of the books below!

Why Are We Doing This?

We realise this is not a normal thing to do, maybe some people may even be opposed to this, but we appreciate what an awful position these authors have been put in at a time that should be a celebration of a massive achievement. We are enormously blessed to be able to run this blog and have the platform that we do to bring attention to this, and wanted to reach out and see if anyone else wanted to help.

    I don’t have a blog. But I do want to say, this is a beautiful idea, Kat. I feel so terrible for these authors.

    This is an awesome idea! Thank you for doing this and spotlighting these authors.
    I’d love to promote Ilsa J. Bick, Bree Despian, or Sarah Cross.
    I’ll gladly run whatever I can (guest post, interview, etc). I just started reading Bick’s White Space so I can review that and if there’s an ARC for The Dickens Mirror, I’ll read and review that too.
    Whatever I can do, let me know:)

    […] show the Last Listers how ready the publishing community is to support them, we hope you’ll head over to the blog hop that Cuddlebuggery is hosting, and sign up. Let’s show Egmont’s Last List some love — you can do so in the comments below to […]

    Kat, can I slip in and say how much all the Last List support has meant to the Egmont authors? It’s been so very heartening! (And I’d also like to point out that Francis Lee Hall and Holly VanDyne are two Egmont authors who are having to sell their books all over again- and they’re still helping us. Amazing.)

    I would LOVE to do Sarah McGuire’s VALIANT – read an ARC a few months ago and am planning to staff pick it at my bookstore.

    My next choices would be either TEAR YOU APART or THE DICKENS MIRROR, but I’m open to whichever. 🙂

    Thanks for doing this. I’d love to see these writers land on their feet. This must be so stressful for them. I have two blogs — the first Caterpickles, is intended for parents with young children. I’d like to review Good Crooks or Hissy Fitz for it. My other blog is for older readers. My top picks for reviews for that one are Anywhere but Paradise or Valiant. Although really, I’ll be happy to read whichever books are low on love.

    It is a very good initiative, I do not criticize it in any way. I would like to read some of these books surely.
