1000 Books for Charity + A Giveaway

Help raise 1,000 books for charity and enter to win $200, signed books and swag!

We are excited to share about an ambitious blog tour—Fiction Frolic for All Hallow's Read—where ten authors from several genres are working hard to raise 1,000 books in three weeks for Books for America.

From October 1st to 19th, donate a new book (or books!) and earn extra bonus points in a huge giveaway that these authors are hosting. 

Two winners will each receive the following PRIZES:

$100 Amazon G.C.
5 signed books from the authors hosting the event
A swag bag
Plus—in honor of All Hallow's read, gift a signed copy of one of our books to a friend!

With a total of $200, 12 signed books (including the gifted books) and major swag, what better way is there to raise books for charity and celebrate All Hallow's Read?

Each author participating is also donating signed copies of their books to Books for America, an awesome charity that is officially sponsoring their event and excited to be involved with All Hallow's Read. In 2011, Books for America donated more than $800,000 worth of books and materials to DC area schools, shelters and dozens of other educational programs and organizations.

The authors are blogging throughout the event at The Fiction Frolic Blog

10/1-5 Read about how books shaped their love for reading and writing. 
10/8-12 Read their scariest, funniest or craziest Halloween experiences, or learn about their favorite Halloween themed book or movie, or favorite work of "dark" literature.
10/15-19 Enjoy some flash fiction, short stories and novel excerpts. 
So donate, share, and look for daily ways to enter to win. Donate to charity for bonus points!

  1. What a great giveaway! This is also an awesome charity event.

    There were soo many books that inspired my love of reading as a child. The very first book that I remember reading over and over (until it literally fell apart) was The Little Golden Book's version of The Three Little Kittens. As I was pretty much hooked on all books after that. As I got older, I found the Little House of the Prairie books, The Baby-Sitter's Club, Goosebumps... oh my goodness, there were so many! Thanks for asking this question. It was a great trip down memory lane :)

  2. Thank you so much for your support. I have had the best time being part of this tour - and the positive karma from the blogosphere on this journey has been awesome:) Laxmi
