I don’t know about you, but I love love love my library. And back when I was in high school? Well, that fiction collection just wasn’t big enough for me. It was rough, I tell you. I scoured the new acquisitions Every Single Week. (Okay, I might be exaggerating a bit, but you get the picture: bookworm, not enough books, sorrow and desperation…)
This giveaway, therefore, is in honor of high school students everywhere who are reading through their school’s fiction collection and thirsting for something new. Funding can make new purchases tough for many libraries, but I write diverse YA and I’d really like young people to have a chance to read my books. Libraries were a haven for me growing up. You never really outgrow what that means to you, so this is one small way for me to give back.
Here’s the deal:
I have five (5) sets of books (Thorn + Sunbolt) to give away to high school or public libraries. If you’re not familiar with my writing, I can promise that both of these books feature diverse worlds, complex realities, and strong women. “Thorn” is a Grimm-inspired tale of magic and betrayal, which has been likened to stories by Mercedes Lackey and Robin McKinley. “Sunbolt” is the first in an epic fantasy series following the adventures of a street thief with a dangerous secret and her nemesis, the dark mage intent on taking over the Eleven Kingdoms.
Only the librarians of said high schools / public libes can enter the giveaway… because otherwise, there’s a good chance that the books won’t actually make it on to the shelves. And that would just be sad.
But everyone can help share the word on this giveaway. Because sharing is caring, right? Yes, it is. Know a librarian? Send them a link to this post and tell them what you think of my books. Or help me by tweeting about the giveaway, sharing it on Facebook, or hollering about it whatever way you think best. And thank you, truly, for helping to get the word out. Y’all are awesome.
Oh, and this giveaway is open internationally. So wherever your favorite library (or librarian) is, they can still enter!
