My Books -> Your Classroom or Library

Every time I publish a book, I get a box of author copies. I give some to friends, give some to schools, use some as coasters, but ultimately, they all end up in my office closet. I think these books would be much happier in classrooms and libraries!

So in the spirit of the season, I'm giving away one set of SIGNED BOOKS each day for the next twelve days. Want to win some free books? YES YOU DO. You can win just by commenting on this page, or on the posts on Facebook and Instagram. I will pick ONE WINNER PER DAY FOR TWELVE DAYS. You only have to enter once. I'll keep you in the drawing the whole time.


IF YOU ARE A TEACHER OR LIBRARIAN: leave a comment telling me which book set you want (book sets are listed below) and why. :)

IF YOU ARE A STUDENT or the PARENT OF A STUDENT: Leave a comment telling me which book set you want for your class (or your students' class) and why, AND YES, YOU CAN READ THEM FIRST. Just promise you'll pass them along to your teacher or school librarian, 'kay?

It's easy! Here are the sets of books (Note: I'm not really sure how many copies I have of these. See that bookshelf? Point being if everyone wants the same things I might run out ((which would make me happy!))

Set 1: The EXILE Series: Contemporary YA rock and roll trilogy, books #1 and #2, EXILE (yellow hardcover or black paperback) and ENCORE TO AN EMPTY ROOM (hardcover). (Book 3 comes out next summer!).  Ideal for ages 13 and up.

Set 2: The ATLANTEANS trilogy: upper middle grade or YA futuristic sci-fi action fantasy series (best for grades 6-8, or mature 5th grade readers).  ARC copies available if you're interested.

Set 3: BREAKOUT and CARLOS IS GONNA GET IT: The realistic, upper middle grade / middle school fiction collection. Ideal for grades 5-8, and book talks.

Set 4: The OLIVER NOCTURNE series and THE FELLOWSHIP FOR ALIEN DETECTION: Middle grade supernatural and science fiction! Perfect for grades 4-8.

Let me know what you want and I'll enter you to win!

Happy tinsel month,
