Beach Book Blast
Since I didn’t mention the Free Kindle Fire* in my previous Beach Book Blast post, and I was (purposefully) a bit cryptic, allow me, if you will, to clarify. Here is what Beach Book Blast is, and how it got started:
Early this month,
Tamara Ward, author of Storm Surge, Jade O’Reilly and the Ice Queen, and contributing author to the The WG2E All-For-Indies Anthologies: Winter Wonderland Edition, sent an innocent email to a small group of writers, asking if any of us would like to team up with her and offer a book for free on the same day(s). I thought this was a great idea, and so did a couple of other authors, so we started planning.
It turns out that more than couple of us thought it sounded good. Tamara’s little email with her great idea has blossomed into quite the big event. Now, less than two weeks later, we have
A Big Event, with:
- A Date: May 23rd-25th,
- A Name: Beach Book Blast,
- a website,
- a facebook page,
- a Pinterest board,
- a dozen Free eBooks, and
- Ten 99 cent eBooks, by
- Fifteen Amazing Authors
- and did I mention a Free Kindle Fire* for one lucky reader?
I’d like to give Big Thanks to Indie Author Powerhouse and Pay it Forward Goddess, D. D. Scott, founder of the WG2E and the RG2E, for the Kindle Fire, and for including All of her books in the Beach Book Blast!
“Big Deal?” you ask. “I can get Free eBooks just about anywhere,” you say.
You are right! Thanks to Amazon’s Kindle Select program, authors offer their books for free all the time. So why is this different?
