The New Year Brings…BONUS PRIZES!

With so many great books out there, it was hard to decide which ones would be included in my year-long PAY A BOOK FORWARD event. Once the word got out that I wanted to share my love of books with educators, librarians. homeschool groups, and just any book lover out there who likes FREE books, some of my author friends generously sent me signed books to give away as BONUS prizes.

But I also wanted to do other things that will make this event extra special. One of the genres I write in is historical fiction so anything to do with history is near and dear to my heart. I was given this bundle of What Is/Who is books and thought they would make a great BONUS prize! They might be given away in January, or I might hold them back and add to the pile. Either way, someone is going to be the lucky winner of some fabulous reading…;)

Come back tomorrow to learn exactly how you can win FREE books for your school, local library, homeschool co-op, or even your own home library!

A New Year Brings With It A New Word…

As a writer, I find myself fascinated with the written word. Whether simple or elaborate, for myself anyway, words have the magical power to life a spirit up or dash that same spirit on the rocks of despair.

Last year we became well acquainted with words no one I associated with used in their vocabulary prior to 2020…

Pandemic

COVID-19

Quarantine

But this is a new year, and I would like for a moment to look back to at least 2017 when someone chose to use a word to create a wonderful, yet to be determined, destination.

CODDIWOMPLE

It kind of describes my PAY A BOOK FORWARD year-long event.

I came up with this idea to share my love of books with educators, librarians, homeschool groups, and just any book lover as my way of supporting this KidLit community. What started out with a handful of purchased books, quickly grew into over 300 books bought or donated to FREELY share with others.

There will be a drawing run from the 10th to the 20th of every month for BONUS prizes like special autographed books, jewelry, and other goodies, along with at least 12-15 books beginning January 10th!

I don’t know exactly what other surprises 2021 holds for us, but you ALL will have a chance to come out a winner…

Of books.

Of BONUS prizes.

ALL YEAR LONG!

So who will go coddiwompling with me today? Come back Wednesday to see this month’s books and BONUS prize to be given away…

NEW YEAR…NEW WAY TO WIN FREE BOOKS!!

Happy New Year’s Day everybody!

I took a much needed hiatus the past couple of months to focus on the many spinning plates I was trying to juggle. Between pandemic, work, house, writing, and business, I was concerned I couldn’t focus 100 percent on my blog as my readers deserved! But now I’m back and have so many new things to share with you…

  1. PAY A BOOK FORWARD event! Every month throughout 2021, I will be giving people the opportunity each month to win a bundle of new and gently-loved books to add to their libraries.

FOR FREE!

I’ll share much more over the next few days and the event will run from the 10th to the 20th of each month. Librarians, educators, homeschool families, or just book lovers in general will have chances to add their name to the monthly drawing to possibly win a bundle of children’s books from board books, picture books, chapter books, middle grade and more! There will even be signed books and other special bonus prizes to be won!

It’s just my way of sharing my love of books and supporting the wonderful writers who make up our KidLit community!

Come back on Wednesday for a peek at this month’s book lineup!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
