Give Thanks, Give Books!! DRIVE & Giveaway

The month of November brings with it the shedding of leaves and cooler air. It's the period of time during our calender year where creation seems to take a break--fade into a stage of dormancy. But in that hibernation, lots of growth can be found.

I'm a true believer in 'When it feels like nothing is happening, everything is happening.' And in these moments, reflection is a great exercise.   

So today, I'm here to announce the official Oasis kick-off of

 'Give Thanks, Give Books' DRIVE & Giveaway!! 

I'm sure each of you have tons to be thankful for in your own lives. We as a community of writers also have lots to be grateful for. One way to show gratitude is to give back.

So here's how it's going to work:
- you choose a book or books (up to ten) to giveaway.
- site the organization(s) you are donating to
- put our giveaway badge on your site (Please make sure to link it back to this post. Thanks!! Promotion would be greatly appreciated! We want to get as many in our amazing community involved and spread the importance of literacy all around.)
- tweet using hashtag #givebooks, blog sidebar, blog post, Facebook, or any other medium - out of the goodness of your heart 
- comment on this post & fill out our form below with your info to officially enter 
- the giveaway will run through November 28th. Four WINNERS will be randomly chosen and announced on December 2nd.
**We're going on the honor system. We trust you do donate what you pledge.** 

- a new copy of Untamed by P.C. Cast + Kristin Cast
- a $15 iTunes gift card
- SIGNED copy of Paranormalcy by Kiersten White
- a paperback copy of The Hollow

NOW, let's see if we can get 100 books donated to promote literacy, support some wonderful pubbed-up authors, and tell the world that we are thankful for being writers. 


  1. That's such a great idea. I'd love to jump in and join the effort. After Nov. I could, but before I'm booked solid. I'll certainly support you with some Tweets and fb mentions and hope they help.

  2. What a fabulous idea! Right before I moved, I gave away almost 300 books to my local library (for their annual book sale). I couldn't possibly pack and move all of them and wanted them to go to a good cause. It was such a good feeling.

    I wish you luck with this and will definitely spread the word. =)

  3. thank you to everyone who is helping to spread the word!


Breaths that matter...
