November Is Adopt an Indie Month - Giveaway Day #1


The great thing about reading is that there is a book out there for everyone! Humor, horror, or hot romance - books have it all. There are a ton of great titles out there that are not represented by the big publishing houses. Some people might feel that these books are of lower quality, but I hope you are not one of those people. Writers pour their heart and soul into their work and all they want is for someone to give their book a chance. A writer with the hundred thousand dollar contract feels the same way...

This week I will offer chances to win some terrific Indie books. They range in age range and genre, but most are young adult. Please visit the Goodreads page and the author site to learn more about these titles. Feel free to comment below if you recognize one of these great books.

Find out more information about Adopt An Indie Month HERE and read one soon next! I am featured on this page, stop by and wave.

Giveaway #1
Ebook of Tooopolis: Gemini by Jeremy Rodden


Toonopolis is a cartoon city that is home to the thoughts and ideas of all sentient beings in the universe. As the center of the Tooniverse, it acts as an other-worldly rest stop for these creations.

Gemini is a teenage human boy who is thrust into Toonopolis through his father's scientific research program. He loses part of himself in the process and immediately begins a quest to regain his lost memories with the help of his Tooniverse guide named Jimbob the Talking Eggplant.

After an altercation with a mysterious Shadowy Figure, Gemini's mission is changed, and he begins a new quest to defeat Shadowy Figure and protect Toonopolis from his nefarious destruction. Along the way, he meets new friends, discovers just how diverse and strange Toonopolis is, and learns lessons about compassion, forgiveness, redemption, and being true to oneself.

  7. The only indie read I can remember reading recently is Better Off Without Him by Dee Ernst. Surprisingly good actually, but it could have been better with some more keen editing. I really want to read Sundial! Thanks for the giveaway :)

  8. I haven't read (m)any indie titles because I borrow most of my reading from the library. Toonopolis looks like an original concept that I'd be interested in reading to see how it plays out. The Happy Birthday trilogy also seems like it would be a fun read. (commenting as Justine)
