Get loaded! Um, what? The hottest gift this year was the e-reader. Thanks, Santa! Now, let’s get them loaded with hot new releases!

The Indie Book Collective is proud to present our first major event and it ain’t your grandma’s blog tour, baby…

So, yea. What exactly is it? is what you’re thinking, right? What’s in it for ME? Santa leave you out? Never fear#afreekindle is here…to win.

Well, let’s lay it A L L out, shall we? #freegifts

It’s sooo easy. You’ll meet twelve awesome authors, tour their blogs, read reviews of their books, and with every visit you access clues to way cool PRIZES, baby. You can enter every day and win prizes at each stop, with clues given out scavenger-hunt style. Gift baskets provided by the authors. And the grand prize is a free Kindle loaded with twelve+ ebooks!

Reader participation is critical because you all decide which author will receive a professional book trailer! Help out your fave authors and meet some amazing indie authors you may have never have heard of otherwise.

For example: do you know our Indie Book Collective featured Book of the Month author (and Blog Tour de Force participant) Amber Scott? @AmberScottBooks has written several romance #sexyhotwhew and paranormal romance books. Here’s a description of her latest superb paranormal romance ebook, Irish Moon:

  • Druid Magick… Breanne grapples with the old ways, her mentor murdered before she masters her talents. The stranger washed ashore must be the key to proving murder. Knight Errant… Ashlon made a vow to bury the Bloodstone, it’s horrific past, it’s secrets, in the farthest reaches of Ireland. Fate’s Twisted Course… Passion binds them but betrayal will test every belief under an Irish Moon.

Amber’s day on the tour will be January 25, so don’t miss it!

Be sure to check the Indie Book Collective site daily for info and clues beginning January 17 with our first book, hot paranormal romance page-turner HeartsBlood by IBC founder Carolyn McCray, now available on Amazon and Smashwords.

Who else? Well…

How about the non-fiction ebook by our other IBC founder @RachelintheOC, Rachel Thompson? Her “Walk in the Snark,” is sure to make you laugh out loud as you read about her man (Mancode/Chickspeak), kids, and life as a pale redhead living in a sea of blondes.
