Kick-Butt Characters Giveaway Blog Hop!

March 23th to 28th
Hosted by I Am A Reader, Not A Writer & Good Choice Reading

I'm so excited for the opportunity to participate in this blog hop and offer three lucky winners one of the five kick-butt character driven books listed below. Also, ten runner-up winners will receive a Kindle gift of my YA fantasy novel: Provex City. As an aside, I realize nearly everyone in the world has read The Hunger Games, but I just had to put it on here because Katniss is the quintessential kick-butt character and the movie opens today!

On to the books...

In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts.
