Welcome to Ohio Author Appreciation in April 2016!
Those of you who have followed since last April will see some familiar faces, but you will also see some new ones as well. The entire purpose of OAAA is to showcase authors born in, raised in, or living in my home state. This does not mean that they currently live here, only that they have a significant tie. OAAA gives these authors a chance to do whatever they want: write a guest post about a timely topic or new release, write about themselves, or talk about whatever they want. It’s their call, their platform.
The other reason I host OAAA is that my birthday is in April. But instead of asking for gifts I want to give them away. Ohio authors donate tons of their own books, ebooks and swag for you all and I buy a nice stack myself to shell out to giveaway winners. This massive giveaway will span the entire month and winners will be chosen in May. Some authors only give one book, others have donated several. The number of winners will depend on the number of books available at the end of the month.
So, before we get to all that let’s meet our OAAA 2016 crew!

WOOT! Welcome to all our fabulous 2016 OAAA authors!
In the coming days there will be posts from each of these wonderful folks (Note: Edith Pattou may have to bow out due to health reasons, get well soon Edith!).
So, the giveaway. All usual rules apply. No cheating, US only, have permission to give out your address, all that fun stuff.
As part of a comment (if you write one) tell us which author’s books you’d be excited to win.
I’m so excited for this! You’ve been talking about this year’s OAAA for awhile and I’m so happy it’s here. My favorite on the list is Mindy McGinnis! I got to meet her at NYCC15! She was so nice.

Ooooh, I remember this from last year! Yay! I would be most excited to win Mindee Arnett’s books. They sound fascinating!
I didn’t know Mindy McGinnis was from Ohio. Shout out to her and her newest book A madness so discreet!
All these great writers from Ohio! Makes me proud to know some of their work!
Regina Jeffers is one of my all time favorite authors and she used to teach at my sister in laws high school!
Such a small world!
Very exciting contest! Tho’ I’m most familiar with Regina Jeffers’ work, I’d be delighted to “meet” any of these authors.
For sure I would love to win one of Regina Jeffers novels! I love her writing and have read most of her works. Such a talent she has with the written word! Thank you for the chance to win and good luck to all!
wow, i am from OH also…
Regina Jeffers, because she is the first one i meet, and read, who told me about this kind of writing genre…:)
Love both Regina Jeffers and Carrie Bebris. I am not familiar with th other authors.

I’ve read books by several of these authors and there are some names unfamiliar to me (I will fix that!)
Can I say all of the above? Any book I’d be happy to win as I don’t own that many!
Thanks for this, I think this is great to highlight authors from one state!
I would love to win a book by Regina Jeffers.
Thank you for the giveaway! I’d say L.S. Mooney.
[…] Looks like I need to dig up some of those adult coloring books I have lying around. Thanks Jody! If you want to win a copy of Jody’s book Thin Space hop on over to our giveaway. […]
I’d love to win books from Cinda Williams Chima and Kristen Simmons!
