Back to School Charity Raffle from Indie Authors Care & Amanda’s Book Nook For All Audiences

 

Hello, blog hoppers! Welcome to our Back To School Charity Raffle and Blog Hop! We’ll be hopping this week to support a generous cause! Indie Authors Care and Amanda’s Book Nook For All Audiences is sponsoring this Charity event, and all proceeds will be going directly to The Internation Rescue Committee, specifically the education department!
We’ll be raffling off an 8” Kindle Fire HD, a $50 Amazon gift card, and an ebook library filled with over thirty books! Raffle winners will be drawn September 6th at 3 PM EST.
For a chance to win any of these prizes, all you have to do is purchase at least one raffle ticket. Of course, your odds of winning do go up exponentially with each ticket you purchase!

Good news for you, raffle tickets are being sold at a discount all week long during the blog hop!
During the blog hop, tickets will be $1 each. After the blog hop, tickets will increase to $3 each.
We also have some bulk discounts.
During the blog hop, you may pay $10 and get 11 tickets, $20 and get 22 tickets, or $50 and get 60 tickets.
After the blog hop, you may pay $15 and get 6 tickets, $30 and get 12 tickets, or $60 and get 25 tickets.
What are we hoping to do with these donations?
We are hoping to raise at least $800. There are many ways we can spend this money. Option one is to spend it to purchase school supplies for 40 children. Option 2 is to use the money to send 14 kids to school for a year. Option 3 is to use it for one donation package each which would amount to sending 3 kids to school for a year, one school supply kit, one teddy bear and creativity kit, pay for one new classroom, pay for school clothes for a child, teaching supplies, and a safe environment.
So, you see, we can change the world together and ensure that these students around the world have all the tools they need to get a quality education in a safe environment with qualified teachers.

Q & A With The Author, Melissa E. Beckwith:

Q: Your writing is very descriptive and flowing. Who were some authors that inspired your work?
A: There have been many throughout the years, to be sure. It was after reading Diana Gabaldon and her Outlander series that I really started to get serious about writing. Then I discovered my love for fantasy and started to read everything from Robin Hobb and Jennifer Roberson. I’m also captivated by Juliet Marillier, Katherine Hurley, Jeff Wheeler and George R. R. Martin, of course.  Historical fantasy is also another genre that I love, especially writers like Naomi Novik and Libbie Hawker.

Q: How long did it take you to write The Empress of Ventra?
A: Well, the idea for the Sword of Rhiannon series has been rolling around in my head for probably twenty years. Then I studied the craft of writing for many years. So the writing, editing and learning process has been going on over the last sixteen years, I’d say.

Q: What kind of readers do you think your book will appeal to?
A: I think anyone that loves a good epic fantasy story with some romance, sword and sorcery, myth and legends and fairy tale stuff with some time travel thrown in will love The Empress of Ventra.

Q: What is the name of the next book in the series and when will that be out?
A: The next book in the series is called “The War of the Gypsy” and it will be out in February of 2017.

Q: Where can people find you on the internet?
A: People can go to MelissaEBeckwith.com and find out more about me and my books and even sign up for my email list to receive exclusive offers and free books. I’m also on Twitter @M_E_Beckwith, on Facebook @AuthorMelissaEBeckwith, and Melissa E Beckwith on Goodreads. Come find me!

Get lost in a captivating new world today and buy The Empress of Ventra.
