Champions! Thank you for joining me today as I announce what I (and my editors, cover artist, and Rock-Star-Assistant-Meg) have been working on for weeks! This summer, starting July 1st and ending August 31st, I’m holding a Summer Reading Event!
Each week I’ll recommend three or four new books for you to check out. Lots of them are in KU, some of them are free, and all of them are good! Tons of authors have agreed to be a part of this program, and I can’t wait to introduce you to their books. But that’s not all! There will also be weekly giveaways, free short stories, youtube videos, facebook live events, and more! (Some of the giveaway prizes are: paperback copies of my books, a few audio book copies of Red Rope of Fate, and ebooks for some of the featured stories from other authors!)
The biggest gift I’m giving to you as part of this event, however, is *drum roll please* a Free Prequel novella for the Timeless Fairy Tale series: The Princess and The Pea. (Available in July!)
While the fun doesn’t start until Sunday/Monday, you can get a glimpse of what’s going on the event page. Once the event starts, you can go directly to its page under the “For Champions” section of the website. (As you can tell by the images, Rock Star Meg and Coverartist Myrrhlynn got together and popped a few of my already available short stories into a Kindle format so through out the summer you’ll be able to download them to your kindle/reading device in a proper and pretty format now instead of having to read them on my website!)
I’m so excited about this event–I wanted to do something fun for us all and to have it serve as a thank you to all of you, Champions. 🙂 I’m so blessed to have you in this with me, and I really hope you enjoy this. (Myrrhlynn and I have been working on this for months!) Feel free to share the page and spread the news around once the event starts. We should have something for everyone! (As a side note: The recommended books are clean, but some contain swear words and others are a little heavier on the violence, so you’ll still want to check the reviews to make certain it’s something you’re comfortable with.)
I’m also excited because this event makes my inner librarian gleeful. (I’ve worked in libraries for a number of years through volunteering, serving as a library page, and working as a circulation staff member.) Every year libraries make big pushes for children’s’ summer reading programs, and while sometime libraries have adult programs they usually aren’t nearly as cool, so here’s to us adults! 😉
So until Sunday/Monday, hold on to your hats, folks! We’re about to have a fun-filled, book-stuffed summer!
