This week's writerly news: February's #JLBgivesawayanINDIE photo-a-day challenge + more

Howdy, guys! :) As promised, here is what's been brewing for a few months now: a new monthly meme/giveaway here at Let Me Tell You A Story, co-hosted by Ashley and Anna's For the Love of Books and Rachel at The NerdHerd Reads! :D 

I'm so excited! #JLBgivesawayanINDIE isn't just about a monthly indie book giveaway. It's about sharing booklove with fellow readers and sharing favorite books and expanding our book fan base and just overall booknerdery interaction. That's why, even though each monthly photo-a-day challenge will be loosely based on the book-of-the-month up for grabs, it's also broad enough of a subject that participants can choose to use the words however they see fit (bookish or not). Woot!

Participating will get entries into the giveaway, but they're not necessary. You can do the photo-a-day challenges just for fun and not enter at all! Whatever works! Point is, camaraderie, and support for indie authors and talk about ALLLL THE BOOKS. :) 

So... that's all I'm saying until February 2nd, when February's #JLBgivesawayanINDIE will officially begin (the challenge will begin on Instagram/Tumblr/Facebook/wherever you want to do it Sunday, February 1st, but the giveaway starts Monday, the 2nd). If you're curious about what's going to be up for grabs, check out Elsker (I believe it's actually free right now on Amazon), go over the photo-a-day challenges and see how the words coincide with the book (or how you could make them work for you in a different way) in your daily photos. I think we're going to have a great time, and I know ST is going to love giving one winner a book and some great swag. :D (And you will all love Ull! *swoons*) I'll be announcing the specific items up for grabs on the 2nd, so make sure to come back and check it out!

Moving on...

This week's song is one I've been totally addicted to by Sia called Soon We'll Be Found. The video is my favorite version of it (because her voice is sorta raspy), but you can also watch the official video (YAY! ASL!), HERE.

Also, I've updated my (very boring and plain-looking) YouTube writing playlists, so if you'd like to get a feel for the books or simply want some new songs to listen to, feel free to check them out, HERE! :)

The Bunker Diary

Waiting on Wednesday: This week's WoW was THE BUNKER DIARY by Kevin Brooks (haha... in case you noticed, I somehow happened to choose two people with my same last name two weeks in a row!).

And... I guess that's about it. Do spread the #booklove about #JLBgivesawayanINDIE and the photo challenge, and have a blessed weekend!
