Kindles for Kids


I recently received an e-mail from author Danyelle Leafty about a project she's working on, called Kindles for Kids. To get complete information on the project, you can visit her website. However, for those of you who like it short and sweet, here's a little bit about Kindles for Kids. 

"Being in the hospital stinks. One, because you're either broken or bleeding and in a lot of pain. Two, hospital stays have to be the LEAST restful things on the face of this planet. And three, if you're the loved one of the patient, it's hard watching them suffer and not being able to do much.

And it's ten times worse when you're a kid in the hospital.

When I was a child, the best medicine was always losing myself in a good book. And that's what I want to give to as many kids as I can. And the only way I can do that is through my own books, which is why I'm donating the royalties from March 12th-31st on both digital and paper copies of CATSPELL toward the purchase of Kindle Fires for the pediatric unit.

The Fairy Godmother Dilemma: Catspell 

Synopsis

Sixteen-year-old Breena never thought anything could be worse than being forced to leave the faerie realm. Then she got stuck with a fairy godmother. But if she has to choose between the two, she’d leave the Faerie Realm over getting bossed about by a faerie with a pointed stick any day. Unfortunately, her attempt to evade her fairy godmother gives her growing pains in the form of fur, whiskers, and a tail.

Turning into a cat is the least of her worries, though. The potion wasn’t meant to bring out her inner feline, it was meant to put her to sleep. Forever. If Breena wants to make it to her Happily Ever After, she’ll have to accept that sometimes a fairy godmother really does come in handy, after all.

I'm always on the lookout for great causes (especially book-related causes), so I figured I'd let you all know about this in case any of you were interested. If you'd like to support Kindles for Kids and purchase a copy of Catspell, I've provided links for you below. And, like always, I don't get anything from them in case you're wondering. They're there for your convenience!


You can also check out Danyelle's right sidebar to order a signed, hardcover copy from her website. Catspell IS available for international readers as well!
