Sunday Post: Book Pre-order Campaigns & Giveaways Galore – 1/31/21

January 31, 2021 Sunday Post 25

Sunday Post header

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on my blog and share news about what’s coming up in the week ahead.


This past week on FYFA (and in my life):

Today is my 8th blogoversary!! Watch for a giveaway, which will be posted tomorrow!

  • The New Pre-order Campaign Page!
    • I’m changing the way I’m listing pre-order campaigns. I decided that the list in the Sunday Post was getting a little unwieldy, even with a scroll box. I have a feeling many people just go right past it without scrolling through the full list.
    • The new Pre-Order Campaign Page features the books more prominently, with covers shown and pictures of the swag, if available.
    • I still like the idea of featuring the incentives in my Sunday Post weekly for people who are already here to visit me anyway, but I’m only going to post the NEW pre-order campaigns here each week.
    • Creating this new page was truly painstaking and time-consuming (I kept running into technical issues that made me have to switch the way I listed things), but hopefully it will be worth it in the long run. I also added Bookshop.org affiliate links, so maybe I’ll get a little bit of commission to help offset blogging costs? I figure it’s worth a try! (As all of you know, blogging gets expensive!)
  • What I Read:
    • City of the Plague God – Love this newest book from Rick Riordan Presents!
    • Amal Unbound – Finally got around to reading the ARC I won from Lisa @ Lisa Loves Literature because my son is going to be reading it for school!
    • I read the Mia Mayhem books I received for review. Super cute!
    • I finished listening to Furia.
  • TV We Watched:
    • SupernaturalWe just started season 9! Season 8 ended … interestingly. I’m curious to see where it goes from here. One problem with bingeing this show is that you know they can’t actually save the universe because there are 7 seasons left!
  • Agility Training:
    • Week four of agility training was our best yet! Digit does really well when he’s off-leash, and we did almost everything that way. So far, we’ve done weave poles, regular jumps, thread and serpentine jumps (where they weave back and forth between jumps in two different ways), stretch jumps (just a slightly longer jump), teeter totter, ramp, table (where they have to jump up and then wait five seconds), and the tunnel. Digit seems to really love them all! I’m going to try to remember to take a video next week, so I can share it here.
  • Snow! It has snowed so much this week. I’ve spent a lot of time shoveling the back patio—if I don’t keep it cleaned off, the dogs pee on it. Ugh! But, at least Digit has enjoyed playing in the snow!

Here’s what you may have missed on the blog since my last Sunday Post:

    • Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction

      Oh, I’m glad that the pre-orders and giveaways are useful. Basically anytime anyone says that they appreciate them, I give a little cheer inside because it is a lot of work to keep up with. LOL! (Oh, I just added a little video of Digit catching snow to the post, by the way–I actually forgot that this post was already live when I went to go add it!)

  1. Sam@wlabb

    Happy 8th Anniversary! I love that your son will be reading Amal Unbound for school. I do think classic lit is still worthwhile and serves as this commonality for us, but I like that they are incorporating contemporary authors and lit into the mix too.

    • Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction

      Yeah, Noah’s classes don’t really read classics and I’m perfectly fine with that. He struggles with reading (and so do his classmates)—classics would just be overwhelming for them. (Oh, I just added a little video of Digit catching snow to the post, by the way–I actually forgot that this post was already live when I went to go add it!)

      • Sam@wlabb

        Wow! What a blast of winter you guys are having. My daughter did say she had quite a bit of snow out your way. Thanks for the video alert. You know I love animal vids. It’s wonderful that Noah’s teachers incorporate such amazing books. I have heard nothing by raves about Amal Unbound. Hope you both enjoy it.

    Happy blog anniversary. What an achievement. I remember when I hit ten years, I was like ‘really!’ I bet you have so many more great memories in your life because of your blog.

  3. Liliana

    For what it’s worth, the new pre-order campaigns page looks great! I love the addition of the pictures!

    Oh girl, you are in for a ride with season 9 of SPN. But I believe this is the season where we meet Sheriff Donna, who I LOVE! She is great!

    And happy blogoversary! Hope you have a great one! 😊

  4. Jessica @ a GREAT read

    I like this new idea for the preorder incentives list! I usually have to scroll super slow to catch those stars! lol. I just had to scroll through season 9 of Supernatural a bit to see what all happens in this one! There’s an episode called Sharp Teeth that has a familiar face…tell me if you remember him! I was giggling when I saw it…not that it was funny-funny, but I just got a kick out of the returning actor playing someone/thing different! lol.

    Yay for not adding to the TBR pile! I didn’t add too much to mine this week either other than a review book! Happy Reading!

    Here’s my StS

    Have a GREAT day!

    Congrats on all the blogging years! You did get a lot of snow. Lulu would not be happy and would not want to go outside. She is a southern dog, also small so she doesn’t have as much body heat? She has the cutest jacket, but she doesn’t like the boots. I think she would enjoy agility too, as she is so smart.

    Thanks for keeping us in the loop with all the happenings in the book world! Man, that takes a lot of work.

    Anyway, I hope you’ll have a great week, Nicole!

  7. ShootingStarsMag

    Happy Blogoversary!!! Congrats on 8 years. That’s fantastic. I love that you made a page for all the pre-order incentives. You’re a gem!

    It’s been starting to snow more around me too; it’s pretty. Glad Digit is doing well in his training.

    Thanks for sharing my discussion post. 🙂 I love everyone’s answers.

    -Lauren
