Magic Realism Blog Hop 2017 Invitation to Bloggers

On the 28th July the 2017 Magic Realism Blog Hop will start here. All bloggers are invited to join in.  Just click the Add Your Link button at the bottom of this post

What is the Magic Realism Blog Hop?
The hop is a magical realism mystery tour, with stops at blogposts covering all sorts of subjects - reviews, thoughts about magic-realist fiction, magic-realist art and film, useful information about magic realism, maybe even some original magic-realist fiction.

During the three days until the 30th July a range of blogs will feature posts about magic realism and some (including this one) will feature more than one post. At the bottom of each post will be a list of the links to all the other posts on the bloghop. So all the reader has to do is click on the links to hop around the bloghop and in so doing discover new blogs and bloggers and read a wide range of posts about magic realism. The hop is fun, informative and generates visitors to the blogs taking part.

The history of the Blog Hop
This is the fifth magic realism bloghop. I organised the first in July 2013 on the first anniversary of this blog. Last year over 20 blogs took part.

How to join in with the Magic Realism Blog Hop?
All you need to join the hop is to post on one of the three days (28th-30th July) something about magic realism. Don't worry if you are new to blogging or blog hops, after four hops I can help you. Interested? Click the Add Your Link button at the bottom of this post.
