I’ve recently joined a small, select group of indie writers of Tween fiction. Tween is that no-man’s land of children’s literature that falls between the upper range of MG and the not-quite-ready for YA. We’re a small group at this time, and I feel confident in promoting the entire list as clean writing of which your parents would approve.

I haven’t read all of the books in our combined repertoire yet, but I have read several, and have quite a few more downloaded to my daughter’s Kindle. I went on a shopping spree the other day and added six of them. As soon as I finish my current read, I plan to dive into the fun of these promising gems.

These books cover a wide array of genres within the age range, including fantasy, sci-fi, historical fiction, and mystery. Since I haven’t read all of them yet, I don’t have a complete list.

What I DO have is a fantastic announcement regarding a special opportunity starting this week.

Our group has been working on a new blog project, which we are calling Emblazon. You’ll soon be able to find us on WordPress. There we will offer lots of fun and informative posts for young readers and their parents, along with links to other sites that we are confident will be of interest to our audience.

As a kind of kick-off celebration, many of us are offering a selection of our ebooks at a special price of only 99 cents each! Many of them will be at that special price beginning June 16th and running through June 21st. That's five days to fill up your readers with some fun and exciting books!

I realize summer is a busy time, but it’s also a fantastic time to catch up on some new books. What could be easier than to load up your favorite ereader with a variety of fun new reads and take it along on your summer outings? I take mine to the pool, to baseball games, to the park, to the lake, etc.

To make this as easy as possible, I’ve put all the links right here. All you have to do is click on the link and you'll be directed (hopefully) to the book's Amazon page. I hope you find something to your liking, and I hope you tell all your friends.

I know! My publisher got mine up today, so it's already been lowered to the 99 cent price.

I'm honored to be included in a list of such great books and authors! Best of luck to everyone!

Thanks for stopping by, Elise and Alan. There are some pretty awesome books on the list, although I haven't read all of them. I'm partway through the Mother-Earth selection, and it's very interesting.
