Friday Finds

All the bloggers here at Magical Musings are thrilled to introduce Friday Finds, which we will be running every Friday. In Friday Finds, we’ll be providing a list of books that have become free, are on special offer, new releases, book recommendations and contests where books are the prize. We love that Magical Musings is a conversation with our readers and other authors, and so we welcome your input.

If you’ve seen a book on sale or for free, have read a great book you’d like to recommend, know of a new release, or if you’re the author and want to let us know about your new release, or if you have heard of or are running a contest where books are the prize, please feel free to submit that information to us through our Friday Finds Submission Form. The cut-off is Wednesday for that Friday’s post, and please make sure that the offers you are submitting will be running that Friday.

So here we go, the first FRIDAY FINDS!
