Music Monday — I’m Reading a Book
I’d been trying for awhile to find the perfect song to link with Elle Casey’s anniversary promotion, and I found it just in the nick of time (Thanks to Janette Rallison’s blog.)
So, what’s the deal with Elle Casey’s anniversary. Well, she generously put together a promotion of indie authors and their books — over seventy books to be exact — to celebrate the publication of her first book one year ago. That’s some seriously good karma. Readers can enter to win in here. Some are paperbacks, most are e-books, and you’ll need to read the fine print if you care about which is which.
I’ve read, or intend to read, a number of these. The list below is by no means comprehensive, but only meant to give you a feel for what’s available over at Elle’s site.
Adriana Ryan — World of Shell and Bone — a dystopia featuring feminism gone wrong. Two words: read it.
Amanda Brice — Codename Dancer — Clever. Dancing with the Stars meets Gallagher Girls
Dalya Moon — Smart Mouth Waitress and Broken Shell Island — Quirky and whimsical, just like the author
Shana Norris — The Boyfriend Thief — a super cute contemporary romance.
Tina Ferraro — The Starter Boyfriend. Her books are fun, and bonus points because this one has a mannequin character, like My Wishful Thinking.
Here’s a couple more to think about. These are authors that I really, really like and I’ve read some of their books, but not the ones in Elle’s promo:
Sibel Hodge — I’ve read adult books by her and she’s got a children’s book It’s A Catastrophe.
ME Purfield — Is darkly funny. A Black Deeper Than Death is the featured book.
Plus there are a lot of other popular authors that I haven’t read their books yet: Dannika Dark, Imogen Rose, Sarra Cannon, Samantha Young, TS Welti.
And, of course, Elle Casey’s books, which aren’t part of the giveaway, but she’s been busy over the past year and you can see her complete list of titles here.
Certainly, I’ve left authors off this list and there’s no ill will or editorializing about it. There’s just no way to mention every single book or author that’s participating in Elle’s ginormous promotion, so here’s the link, again. And now for this silly, but widely viewed video. Apologies if you’ve already see it.
