Here’s information on a big upcoming event and two contests for authors.
My author friend Chris McMullen has created an exciting counterpoint to the (depressing) Black Friday retail experience in the U.S. this week.
“Read Tuesday” on December 10, 2103, is a worldwide online sale discounting hundreds of books. All shoppers, including those on a budget, will have an easy and affordable way to give books as gifts this holiday season.
I’m asking you to do two things:
- Offer a discount on your book for just one day and add it to the Read Tuesday site catalog.
- Help shoppers and readers find books for themselves or others by sharing information about Read Tuesday, December 10. Tell your in-person and social networks — they’ll want to know about it!
