Become a Participating Author

This year’s theme is Summer Reading All-Around!

The program is designed for kids of all ages! We have participating authors with children’s picture books, early chapter books and middle grade, and YA.

There is no cost to join, however, we do ask you to donate a book, merchandise, gift certificate, or other item of your choice for prizes for the kids!  You will be responsible to mail the item to the winner.

Participating is easy! Hand out reading logs at your summer events, post them online, share them in your newsletter, or drop some off at your favorite feed store or library! Get creative!

Complete the online form to participate.

The program runs from June 1 to September 1, 2023.
Be sure to invite your followers to join us in the Facebook Group!

And join us in our Author Group.

Social media images, reading logs, and sample blog posts will be available to you prior to June 1. If you sign up after June 1, the information will be sent to you upon sign-up.
