My $100 YA eBook Shopping Spree [Updated: Spree Over]

UPDATE: Spree is now over. I bought a total of ZERO books.

Welcome! You might have heard that I'm on an ebook shopping spree today. Do you want me to buy your ebook? Just follow the directions below. Trust me, it's very simple and you don't have to buy or sign up for anything.

Today I've set aside a budget of $100 to buy ebooks. Why? I want to support other writers, for one. But the main reason is that I'm an author with an ebook to sell, and I want you to know about it. Please indulge me for a moment, and then we'll get to the part where I buy your ebook!

Six teens and a grizzled old guide embark on a ten day expedition into the wilds of the Canadian Rockies. Some came for adventure. Some came to learn. Some came to escape.

For sixteen year old Danny Michaelson the hike is freedom from his troubled home life.

For Breyona Lewis the hike distances her from a terrible memory—of an assault she denies even to herself.

But when Danny and Breyona encounter a creature out of legend—an enormous beast they immediately tag as "bigfoot"—the hike suddenly becomes a race for their lives.

Swept into a secret underground city and told they may never leave, the hikers find themselves in the middle of a war between the bigfeet and their rebellious servant race, the tangoga. In their desperate attempt to escape, Danny and Breyona uncover the terrible plans that both races have for Earth.

To escape, to live, to save the Earth—Danny must fight. Breyona must surrender.

You can find my book on Amazon, Nook or Smashwords.

Consider following me on twitter

If you feel moved to do it, consider adding my book to your goodreads list!


Now, on to the good part. I will buy any YA adventure, science fiction, fantasy ebook priced $4.99 or less from either the Kindle store or the Nook store. This is first come, first bought. (please note: I'll be picky about the genre, so don't tweet me your erotica, literary, adult thrillers, etc.)

1) Tweet (not DM) to me: @ekedstrom your book title and the link to where I can buy it! Also include in your tweet this link: (which links back to this web page). That's all there is to it.

2) I'll take each tweet in the order they come in and buy the book. I don't know how fast the budget will go down. I'll update this post when the budget is used up!

When it's all over I'll create a list of the books I bought with the purchase link you gave me!

Let the game begin!
