100 For 100: A Book Challenge to Empower Lives

Can books transform lives? Absolutely. Learning to read and write books certainly transformed my life from purposeless to empowered; now I want to spread that strength.

Several of my warehouse's coworkers are ex-convicts who are trying to better their lives after serving time behind bars for their past mistakes. Many of them have told me how important books have been in helping them learn how to reform their lives and themselves into something better. Recently, one of my coworkers bought a copy of Skinshifter for his girlfriend, who is still in prison. She thanked me, telling me how much my book encouraged her and inspired her to fix a few things in her life. She is just the latest in a long string of readers to tell me this, and that sparked this crazy idea:

What if I could get paperback copies of my book Skinshifter to prisoners and other disadvantaged readers? And what if I could do it in the form of a 100-day challenge?

So here it is! My 100 For 100 Literacy Challenge:

  • The challenge: I give away 100 paperback copies of Skinshifter to 100 libraries in 100 days.
  • The catch: The libraries must be located in the continental U.S. and the libraries must serve fiction readers that people often forget about helping like:
    • prison libraries
    • low-income high school libraries
    • underfunded libraries in small towns
  • Want to help? Email me the address of any disadvantaged libraries you know.
  • Want to help more? Sponsor a book. The first 100 books are ones I'm donating myself. However, people may sponsor "bonus" copies to be donated along with the original 100 I'm donating. A book sponsor costs $20 per book to cover cost, tax, and shipping and can be paid through PayPal to me at [email protected] Please include the name and address where the book is being donated in the comments of the sale.
  • Challenge starts Today, September 1 and ends December 9.
  • An official tally board of donated books will be here on the blog section of my website and on my social media. I'll also update counts in my Sylvan Scribes newsletter.

Until next time, may we all rewrite our world for the better!

Warmly,
Alycia

P.S.-I'll be back next week with an update on how many books we've donated. In the meantime, please get me those book giveaway recommendations! THANK YOU!
