July 2018 Cookbook Giveaway Summary

It's the first of the month and that means giveaway roundup time. As a reminder, we have tagged each promotion with the specific region to make them easily searchable. Once you have found your region's tag - bookmark that search and you will never have to scroll through the long giveaway list again. To further help, I have set out the tags below with links to the proper searches. Click on your country (or, of course, worldwide) and you will have a listing of giveaways available to you. (Remember to save that search to your favorites).

If you are having any difficulties with entering our giveaways, our how-to post  should be able to steer you in the right direction. I am working hard on providing more worldwide possibilities but again this lies in the publishers' hands.
