The Uprise Books Project
The Uprise Books Project is nearing the end of their Kickstarter Campaign, and they still need almost $2,000. The way Kickstarter works, if they don’t meet their goal by the deadline, they do not get any of the pledges. It would a shame to see them get this close and not make it. I’ve pledged $5. You can pledge as little as $1. Their goal is to provide banned and challenged books to underpriviliged teens to raise literacy rates. Check out their Kickstarter Campaign page to see how they’ll use the money they raise.
On a completely unrelated note, Writerspace.com is holding their 2011 Halloween Mash. Register for a chance to win one of 100s of romance, young adult, or mystery novels or a Kindle. The more entries they get, the more Kindles they’ll give away.
