Calling All Authors

I have a favor to ask.

One of my kids is in theater arts. At a parent meeting this week, the teacher informed us one of the ways we could help was to donate books--used or otherwise. Apparently, they have the kids turn stories into plays for an assignment.

For what it's worth, I don't think they act these out on stage. They just do the writing part to study how to make scripts.



Anyhow, since I know so many wonderful writers, I thought I'd put this out there and ask if you'd help. If you can donate books in paper, e-book, or PDF form (anything, really), please let me know. I'll hook you up with one of the instructors so you can get your questions answered and work out any details. (He's an incredibly cool and laid back guy, but I'm sure he'll appreciate not having his email plastered across the internet. *grin*)

Regarding content, although YA and tame NA would probably be best, don't worry. The teachers review these before the kids get their hands on them. And any unsuitable paperback donations can be traded at the local used bookstore for other things they can use.

I hope you will take a few minutes out of your day and help this worthy cause. You'll get a warm fuzzy feeling, my undying gratitude, and (hint, hint) a little free advertising out of the deal. ;)

In case you hadn't heard, EJ Wesley's latest installment in the Moonsongs series, Dragon's Game (Moonsongs 4), released this week. Woot! A tasty snack of paranormal goodness just in time for Halloween!

I've already read it, and I can assure you, it's good. :)

You can find my review and more info on Goodreads.

  1. Oh, that's cool that the students act out the stories.

    And I do love EJ's newest cover. So beautiful.

  2. Too bad I'm in Mexico and my books are mainly in Spanish. I have hundreds of books I seek to donate.
    I leave you Dragon Hugs!

  3. I'd be happy to donate a copy of Edge of Truth in either eBook or paper. Let me know which would be most helpful. :)

  7. You know you're welcome to either of my books--provided, of course, you think there's anything tame enough to work with. ;)

  8. Congrats to EJ for the new book! I loved drama when I was in high school - we never wrote scripts though. My book's YA and I'd be willing to donate it, but it's also horror and may be a bit too scary/violent for some kids...

  9. Oh, I'd love to donate to this, but I don't think Polar Night is appropriate. But if the need is still there when I have the Aquinnah ebooks I think that one would fit even though it's not YA or NA. Would be happy to help out and it would be fun to imagine students reading one of my books.
