Win Book Prizes During Bestseller Bound Birthday Bash!

It’s hard to believe that it has been one full year since Bestseller Bound launched, bringing together indie authors, readers, and bloggers. This friendly community of like-minded people has become an important part of my life. Darcia Helle started this message board forum site, with input from myself and Maria Savva. My greatest contributions were coining the name Bestseller Bound and helping to write some of the mission statements, but Darcia and Maria have really kept the site blossoming with the day-to-day moderating and administering and have taken it in all sorts of wonderful directions. How Darcia has time to put out one excellent book after another, and be the leader of Bestseller Bound, I will never know but indie authors everywhere are thankful she brought us together. We’ve had all sorts of exciting projects, such as short story collections and sample chapter anthologies, not to mention the networking, book reviews, and literary discussion on the boards. If you’d like to come by and join the site, we’re always happy to have new members.

In honor of our anniversary/birthday event, a bunch of our members have gotten together to offer their books to interested readers. We have 12 prizes – 11 ebooks and 1 very special, not yet released, print book. The deadline for entry on all the blogs is midnight on Saturday, September 17. Winners will be notified via email, so please be sure to include a valid email address in your comment. The only other rule is that you need to be 16 or older. Here is the list:

1 coupon code for a free ebook copy of The Dream by Maria Savva from Smashwords

1 coupon code from Smashwords for free ebook copy of any one title by Darcia Helle

The Choice by Sydney S. Song (my pen name for fiction, only) from Smashwords giving free e-book coupon
