Middle grade and young adult have grown so much over the past few years and we're big fans of these genres. It's more than books for preteens and teens, this genre appeals to multi-generations. It's also two of our favorite genres. So, we've decided over a six-day period, we want to feature as many middle-grade and young adult titles as possible in our Middle Grade and Young Adult Bookish Event.
Do you have a book (or several) that's considered middle grade or young adult? Young adult fiction is a category of fiction written for readers from 12 to 18 years of age. While the genre is targeted to adolescents, approximately half of YA readers are adults. The subject matter and genres of YA correlate with the age and experience of the protagonist. The same applies to middle grade, though the age group for it is 8 to 12. This event is open to any genre, fiction or nonfiction. It can be in any format (e-copy, print, audiobook). If you have a boxed set or are taking part in an anthology, it qualifies. I'm not picky here. If you think your book would make for a great middle grade/ya read, then please sign-up. This event will be marketed as a middle-grade and young adult bookish event.
As an added incentive, you get a free customized graphic ($11 value) to use. To see an example, please scroll up to the top of this post to see it. I will send it out to you before the event starts.
On September 6-11, we want to feature your books: e-copy, print, or audiobook. If you're featuring your book on sale during these dates, this is a great opportunity to gain more sales. Same goes if your book is a freebie. Note: Your book does not have to be on sale to participate in this event. If we get more than forty books, we'll extend the dates.
We want you to participate. There's no limit per author. The price is $11 USD per book. You won't find a better deal than that.
The giveaway is an Amazon gift card. The amount of the gift card will depend on how many authors participate. The more spots we fill, the bigger the prize for readers. Part of your fee goes towards the gift card. Oh, and no worries, we will take care of awarding the prize to the winner.
