Giveaway #14
Ebook of Solstice by PJ Hoover

Piper’s world is dying. Global warming kills every living thing on Earth, and each day brings hotter temperatures and heat bubbles which threaten to destroy humanity. Amid this Global Heating Crisis, Piper lives with her mother who suffocates her more than the chaotic climate. When her mother is called away to meet the father Piper has been running from her entire life, Piper seizes an opportunity for freedom. 

But when Piper discovers a world of mythology she never knew existed, she realizes her world is not the only one in crisis. While Gods battle for control of the Underworld, Piper's life spirals into turmoil, and she struggles to find answers to secrets kept from her since birth. And though she’s drawn to her classmate Shayne, he may be more than he claims. Piper has to choose whom she can trust and how she can save the people she loves even if it means the end of everything she’s ever known.

To escape the emotional turmoil of his father’s death 12-year-old Kevin Tobin has retreated inside himself, developing his imagination into a dangerous foil and a powerful ally. While he antagonizes everyone with his superhero antics, his ability to escape inside himself becomes critical to his survival after his life is once-again turned upside down a year after his father’s death. When a mysterious package arrives in the mail, Kevin and his best friend are hunted by a ruthless villain who is determined to retrieve the package, which holds the key to his plans for world domination. After enlisting Kevin’s teenage sister and her pizza-delivery boyfriend in a battle for control over time itself, the group escapes into the mountains west of Boulder, Colorado and eventually discover that Kevin’s entire existence is because of the love of someone we never expected.

Giveaway #16
Ebook of Practice Cake by Dayla Moon

There’s one thing Maddie finds more tempting than red velvet cake: her coworker, Drew. All it takes is one of his sly winks or a playful hip-check by the cooler, and she’s incinerating the cookies. Her boyfriend would not approve.

When a reality TV crew descends upon the bakery, her simple summer job gets even more complicated. Maddie could become the Bakery Network’s next breakout star, if she can handle the heat of being cast as a show villain. Drew has an alternate idea: run away from everything, with him and his sexy tousled hair. She decides to take the leap, but when she finds out Drew’s been hiding a shocking secret, Maddie looks down at her packed suitcase and takes a moment to think. Should she fly off to Australia with a guy she hardly knows, or should she pick up her suitcase and hit him with it?

  1. Thanks so much for featuring all these Indies Jen! I love them. I've actually read SOLSTICE and it is fabulous! I love supporting indie authors. Thanks for the giveaway!

  2. Yay!! This is so cool! LOVE the indie features! But didn't you start a little early? lol It's still October :p

  3. Thanks for introducing me to MORE indie books. Some of these from the covers I honestly wouldn't suspect were indies.

  4. I have to say I've got Kevin's Point Of View by Del Shannon in my sights.

    A great selection.


  5. Based on the cover, Kevin's Point of View reminds me of Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Ottaline, and Origami Yoga -- you know, those cartoon line drawings incorporated into the narrative. Looking at an excerpt, though, Kevin's Point of View doesn't seem to be in the same storytelling style. I'm just trying to figure out if the book's target audience is YA or MG.

    Practice Cake sounds like a fun romance romp! I wonder how shocking Drew's secret is.

  6. Ah I'm definitely feeling Solstice from this particular list. Thanks for these great giveaways that also introduce us to new indie reads :D


  7. Hi Everyone! Del Shannon here with a quick note about the cover for Kevin's Point of View. I speak at lots of schools and the cover illustration was included in a stack of student thank you notes mailed to me with a note that read "Thank you for coming to our class. I hope your book becomes a movie." The drawing is a scene from the 2nd chapter and I loved it so much I put it on the cover where it serves as a constant reminder of who I'm writing for. One day I hope to find the artist - Ruben Quintana - and thank him in person. In keeping with the pencil sketch theme, there are dozens of doodles and sketches throughout the book.

    Kevin's Point of View straddles the YA/MG line, and lots of younger and older kids (and even adults) have enjoyed the story.

  8. Oooh, I have Solstice on my wish list!
