2015 Trick or Treat Reads: Get 43 Free Books for Halloween!

43 Authors Giving Free Books for Halloween!

Last year my pal, Patricia Lynne, had a brilliant idea. Like me, Patty loves writing books, and one day while chatting with other authors about Halloween she suddenly thought,

“What if I did a blog hop where authors handed out their books for free to readers? THE BOOKS ARE LIKE CANDY!”


Trick-or-Treat Reads = Free eBooks

That’s how Trick-or-Treat Reads blog hop was born. If you would like free eBooks & nifty book-related swag from over 25 different authors, all you have to do is hop through the links at the bottom of this blog post!

But don’t hop away, yet. *This* post is one of the blog hop stops!

My eBook Treat for You!

This year for Halloween, I’m giving away a free eBook highlighting my favorite independent bookstore: Booked Up in Archer City, Texas.

About my Freebie:

Booked Up is a labor of love created by the award-winning Texas author, Larry McMurtry. My freebie features an excerpt about this famous bookstore from my best-selling travel guide, Unexpected Texas. However, since my book does *not* contain any photos, I’ve added a whole bunch of pictures snapped during my writing research trip to Archer City, Texas.

I hope you enjoy learning about Booked Up. If you’re ever in north Texas a trip to Archer City to see this one-of-a-kind independent bookstore is definitely worth the effort!

How to Claim Your Treat from Me

Simply leave a comment on this post saying “trick-or-treat,” and tell me a little bit about how you will be celebrating Halloween. In return, I’ll email you my ebook, “Unexpected Texas: Larry McMurtry’s Booked Up.”

Just so you know, my freebie will run from Halloween through next Saturday, November 7, 2015. I want to give any latecomers a chance. Please note: Most folks will only be giving away their goodies on Halloween, so hurry up and hop through the list!
