Do Justly Fair Trade Friday News & Updates

Firebrand anniversary giveaway!

By on March 24, 2017

Firebrand turned 1 year old this week, and to celebrate, I want to do a giveaway! I have some super-cool, brand-new Firebrand book bags, and I’m going to fill one with books for one lucky winner.

First, let me tell you a little about these totes, because I’m really excited about them. They’re Fair Trade, 100% organic cotton bags from Freeset Global, a company that helps offer women in Kolkata, India a way out of the sex trade. So each one of these bags, as Freeset says, is a symbol of freedom and hope. Something that I think would make Saoirse and Westleigh proud!

One side of the book bag features the Firebrand title, the other, my favorite quote by William Lloyd Garrison:

I have a need to be all on fire, for I have mountains of ice about me to melt.

(And don’t worry, if you don’t win the giveaway, I also have these available on my Etsy store.)

Inside the giveaway bag will be:

  • a paperback copy of Firebrand
  • a copy of the Firebrand Prologues
  • 3 of my favorite YA historical novels, randomly chosen
  • book swag!

How to enter

Ok, so here’s the next cool thing I’m excited about. I’ve started a fan group on Facebook to give us an easier way to interact, share cool stuff, and reach new readers. I’m calling it Sarah’s Firebrands: a closed group where members get inside looks, free previews, more chances to win in monthly giveaways, and more. And I’ll be posting weekly “missions” to help spread the word to other readers, like recommending the book to a friend on Goodreads, sharing posts, etc.

So, all you have to do to enter this book bag giveaway is join the group! Head over to Facebook, request to join, and I’ll add your name to the drawing. Simple!

Entries will close at the end of the day Sunday, and I’ll send a message to the winner on Monday morning. Good luck!

Oh, and let me just take a moment to say a huge thanks to all of you. This has been an interesting, challenging, crazy year. And for all of you who have followed and encouraged me through it, written reviews, shared with friends, THANK YOU! I can’t wait to see where this next year goes!

All my love,

  • I love the time of year when my Goodreads goal is new and not looming over me and reminding me what a slacker librarian I am... 🙃
