Banned Books Week Giveaways

Hey peeps!

Ever noticed how some of the BEST books you've ever read have ended up on the "banned" list at one point or another?

Yeah. Lame.

One of these days we'll figure out that the value of literature cannot be measured by what challenges societal norms, morals, thinking and beliefs.

Or... maybe we CAN...

After all, if your book ends on the banned list, perhaps its destined for greatness? Think about it.

Anyway, in honor of Banned Books Week, my rock awesome blogging buddy, Heather McCorkle, is doing a banned books giveaway. Check out her blog and show support for her own newly released YA masterpiece!

Great post… mine has the potential of being banned, but if some of Stephen king’s books made it through: I stand a good chance.

I'll check out the link... thx.

Sweet! Thanks Julie!

Jeff: can say I've definitely sweated over putting things in my book vs. not before. In the end, I usually just try to be true to my characters. The story flows better that way and keeps my characters from staging a mutany! Good luck with your writing!

Ali: you're welcome, of course!
