Sep 012013

It’s September and with that comes crisper air, early mornings, school buses and thoughts of Halloween, school trips and fees that never seem to stop. Whether it’s a child going to grade school or college or university, your house may be just a bit quieter during the day and if you work nights that can be a blessing!

This September I’m promoting literacy in a huge away as those who can read should be doing so on a regular basis and it’s super easy to pass on the ability and inspire the addiction. I want you to date an author this month and it’s not as expensive as dinner or a movie!

So over the next 30 days I want you to each pick an author, give a stranger a chance and possibly fall in love without cheating on a loved one!

Yes, I’m selfishly making the effort to lower my own sales rank in an attempt to prove that independently published authors can succeed and beat the odds. But it’s more than the sale rank and the money for me, much more.

All About Literacy

I want everyone to find someone they love to read. There are too many non-readers in the world who just simply haven’t found the right book to fall in love with. So this month I’m going to be introducing you to many authors in various stages of their career to inspire, motivate and impress you.

For you, I ask you to share, comment, check out their books and review them if you buy them. When you write something people will read it and reading can be as contagious as a smile – be sure to pass it on.


In support of all these authors and the idea of literacy I’m giving away a $25 Amazon gift card using Rafflecopter so you have a lot of easy opportunities to enter! Check it out:
