The INDIE-pendence Day Author Celebration can help keep your kids reading all summer long!
Fifteen independent teen and ‘tween authors are hosting an eReader giveaway in which one lucky parent will walk away with a free Kindle loaded with hot indie Middle Grade and Young Adult books for their child.
INDIE-pendence Day, devised by middle grade author Sybil Nelson, serves the dual purposes of raising awareness of Indie authors and meeting the increasing demand for eReaders among teens and tweens. As more libraries invest in eBooks for younger readers and indie authors like Amanda Hocking top teen summer reading lists, it seemed the perfect time to do something on a broad scale. So Sybil put out a call for like-minded writers. The result was a diverse group of talented writers whose fiction runs the gamut from contemporary to fantasy, from horror to the social concerns of bullying.
In order to enter, participants need only to register on the official INDIE-pendence Day website. Additional entries can be earned for tweeting, blogging, and sharing participating author related info. Activities such as book reviews earn even more entries.
