It’s CIRCLE HOP Time!!!!!

(Title said in an Oprah yell!)

Today we’re starting a blog hop for my most recent book, The Doodle Circle: A Fill-In Journal for BFFs to Share! I am SO excited about this book. I know I say that about every book I’ve published! And this is my FIFTH! I cannot believe that.

Honestly, I’m not good at tooting my own horn. But as an author, I have to promote my work. Shameless plugs everywhere on the internet. Yes, I know. But it’s necessary to get the word out!

I’m going to leave the reviews and playing to my blog hop circle. They can tell you what it’s like to play in the journal and share it with others. I know they’ll all do a smashing job because they are all wonderful artists and friends. I’m happy to include them in my blog hop circle. Some of them will be holding giveaways for signed copies. So make sure to jump on over to their blogs and show them some love. They are:

During the blog hop, make sure to check back here for little extra sneak peeks of the innards of this new little tome of mine.

I’m the last on the list because the hop will come back here to dawndsokol.com to announce a winner of the grand giveaway. That’s right! We not only have some blog artists in the hop giving away a signed copy of The Doodle Circle, but I am giving away a signed copy of The Doodle Circle, plus my book Art Doodle Love, and a small set of Micron pens.

But that’s not all. For a GRAND prize, I’m also giving away those two books, PLUS a signed copy of Doodle Diary, a signed copy of Doodle Sketchbook, a couple of Micron pens, two Gelly Roll white pens, and two Tombow markers. So there will be two winners here!!!! I feel so lucky to have my good friends at Sakura supply me with Microns and Gelly Roll pens to give away to you!!! And if you already have those other books and you win, you can give them to someone you love...


Some REALLY good prizes to celebrate my latest book! I hope you’ll join in. All you have to do is leave a comment in this post. One comment per person, please. Tell me what you like about doodling. Deadline to enter is Oct. 7. I will pick two winners—one for the big prize and one for the GRAND prize—and announce them here on Oct. 12! And remember to enter the giveaways for signed copies of The Doodle Circle at some of the hop artists’ blogs, too. You can’t win if you don’t play!!!!
