Receive a Free YA Novel!: Read-Pass-Repeat

One of my favorite aspects of reading a book is that sense of escape. Of getting lost in a story as reality fades. Of identifying with the main character and realizing that I am not alone in my struggles.

This just happens to be one of my favorite aspects of writing as well. Because not only does writing offer that same sense of escape, but it allows me to offer this to my readers as well.

Which is why I have decided to give this opportunity to three of my blog readers. At no cost.

I want to give you the gift of my YA inspirational novel, PURPLE MOON. Why?

I know how special a book can be. I'm not saying that everyone is going to love my book; however, I want to at least give you the chance to read it. Because personally, I believe that there is no better physical gift than the gift of a book. Isn't it crazy how something so simple as words printed on a page can become such an important part of our lives? Our growth, even?

Stories leave an impact. They stay with us forever, etched on our hearts, long after their physical copy has worn and the pages have become torn. 

So for those who are interested in receiving my novel (for free), send me an email answering this question: What do you love most about reading and why? Keep in mind that only the first 3 people who email me will receive a book at this time.

The only thing I ask is that you don't keep this book to yourself. Instead, when you are finished reading, pass it to someone else. Give them the gift of a story. 

For every person that receives my book, I will include a small treat: A tea bag. Or Hershey kisses. Or a special bookmark. Instant coffee, etc. Then, when it's your turn to pass the book, you can include a small treat as well. 

There will also be a log of names listed in the back of the book. When you receive this, write down your first name (or user name), as well as the dates that you read the book. And then you could maybe even include a short comment as to what you thought of the book.

Once you have passed it along to the next person (which may be a friend, family member, or even a stranger), send me an email. Let me know what you thought of the book and who you passed the book to. I will then put your name in a drawing to receive a Purple Moon Prize Pack, and a new winner will be chosen per every 5 readers. 

Will there be other chances to win PURPLE MOON? Yes. I will soon have a page on my blog that tracks the path of every Read-Pass-Repeat book, with the list of locations that PURPLE MOON visited, etc. You will also have the opportunity to win one of these books or begin your own Read-Pass-Repeat path as well. 

In the meantime, don't forget to send me an email for your chance to win! =)

Books brought people together and gave them a path to worlds they would not otherwise experience.

  1. This is such a neat idea (the log sheet in the back of the book). Also, I love your new blog design!

  2. This is a cool idea! I would participate except... I already own two copies of Purple Moon. I bought a copy a while back and then when a chance came along to win a signed copy... I entered. (Because a signed copy is pretty epic, though I'm sure I don't have too explain that to you.) Once I get a job, I figured I'd do a giveaway for the not signed copy. A very cool idea though! :-)

    1. Haha no problem, Naomi! And thank you!

      Actually, I will soon offer a chance for those who do own a copy of Purple Moon to begin their own Read-Pass-Repeat paths as well. I'm not sure if you would be interested, but if so, be sure to stay updated to see when the page will be posted. =)

      God bless!


  3. This is such a cool idea! I'm with you- there is no better physical gift than that of a book.

    1. I know, right? Everyone in my family knows that they should expect a book from me for their birthdays and/or Christmas. (Along with something else too, of course.)

      Books are the best gift because not only do they offer escapism, but they can also increase our knowledge, expand our imagination, take us on multiple adventures, teach us how to cope with reality, encourage and inspire us, enable us to see situations from different points of views, etc. =)

      Thanks for commenting!
