Blog Tour De Troops is HERE!

May 27, 2011

This Memorial Day weekend, over four days, 30 plus authors are thanking our troops for keeping our country safe and free.

Amber Scott marks the first stop in a daisy chain blog hop of a fantastic time that is getting national attention for a reason.

The land of the free! The home of the brave! What is being indie if not being FREE?!

Yep. We’re indie. Self-published and proud of it. Along with hundreds of other authors, the Indie Book Collective is crumbling stigma and proving indie isn’t a dirty word.

We have the sales and reviews to back it up, too! Ready for over 35 free ebooks?

AWESOME! Because every commenter on each listed blog, each day, gets that author’s participating ebook FREE!

Not only do you get it, but one goes to a troop for every single unique commenter. So send a friend! Not only do you and they score a 5 star read, a troop gets one, too.


Talk about freedom! Let’s make it ring book lover style this Memorial Day!

Amber Scott, “Play Fling,”

Stacy Wallace Benefiel, “Day of Sacrifice Vol. 1-3,”

Jennifer Provost, “Rise of the Deva’shi: A Chronicle of Parthalan,”

Jonathan Gould, “Doodling,”

Kat Lively, “Dead Barchetta,”

Joel Goldman, “Motion to Kill,”

Sonia Rumzi, “Pen, Paper, Action,”

Dawn Wilson, “Leaving the Comfort Cafe,”

Roy Finch, “The Emperor of Glitter Gulch,”

Stay tuned for more stops, authors and FREE ebooks tomorrow!

    Someone might want to tell Sonia Rumzi that there is no way to leave a comment on her blog. I just hunted through the whole thing several times and couldn’t find a “comments” link or box or anything.

      Hey MamaSylvia, I had the same problem, but there is a little section to the right side of the post for comments. It’s underneath her book’s cover art 🙂

    Thanks everyone for your wonderful comments here today! We’re so excited to bring this tour to you, to share these amazing authors, and to be able to provide free eBooks to everyone — readers, troops, whomever!

    The free Kindle giveaway is also terrific, and don’t forget, anyone can DONATE to our IBC for Kindles Troop PayPal account. Even $1 helps. All donations help our troops and we hope to provide as many Kindles as possible to our brave men and women in uniform. Please help spread the word.

    This is such a great idea! Thank you all for putting this together.

    If I might, I’d like to throw in the names of two troops: my husband (Afghanistan) and my brother (Iraq).

    Is there a place that I can leave their email addresses without making them public to the entire internet?

  14. May 29, 2011 8:56 am

    I’d like to donate mine to a troop as well but don’t know anyone out there. Please choose for me, k?
    Thank you to those men and women who protect us and our freedom.
