Big Al's Books & Pals 2014 Readers' Choice Awards: Young Adult Nominee

A ruthless murder and a stolen shipment of gold.

At school, sixteen-year-old Nikaia Wales endures the taunts of bullies who call her a “half-breed.” At home, she worries about how her family will react if she reveals her growing feelings for the quiet boy next door.

Nikaia desperately searches for clues to save her father. In her quest to find the killer, she learns about the power of family, friendship, and young love....

Authors on 99 cent website...anymore freebies??
« on: January 21, 2011, 02:04:11 PM »
I hope this reaches a good majority of the authors that have their 99 cent ebook posted on our blog.  

I'm trying to come up with a gimmick to get more readers circulating the site on a more frequent basis.  

My question to you is this, would you consider giving away 1 free book? Or if you have multiple books on the site, would you consider giving away 1 free copy of each book?

I'm trying to think big...possibly giving away 100 free books, being that we'd only have to pay 99 cents each, it wouldn't be much out of our pocket, but would bring in some readers.  

I'm still getting the details figured out, but please post your name and book title in a reply if you're down to help bring more traffic to our little mini library of 99 cent ebooks, by donating a free ebook.
