The First Leighgendary Beacon

In February I introduced you to a new segment I was adding to the newsletter called Becoming Leighgendary Beacons.

Here at The Leighgendarium, we do a lot of giveaways for our followers. I decided that I wanted to do something for the community, but more importantly, YOUR community. I want you to partner with The Leighgendarium for this.

What is Becoming Leighgendary Beacons is:

Each month I want to partner with you and give a book or a couple of books to a local library, school, or organization of your choice. It is that simple.

Now there are two parts to this: one part for people who want to give and one part for authors who want to donate books.

How Can You Become Apart Of This Program?

It is very simple actually. Just a couple of steps:

  1. Sign up for The Leighgendarium’s Newsletter.
  2. Each month I will tell you how to enter. Basically I will give you an email address to email and you will send an email there with what library, school, or organization you want to give the books to.

That is all you have to do. At the end of each month I will take the people who email me and randomly choose a winner. All I ask is that when you win you have a picture taken of you donating the books to the place you mentioned.

For Authors:

We need authors who are willing to donate one book or one series to Becoming Leighgendary Beacons. If you are an author and would be willing to donate, please email Preston at leighgendarium (at) gmail (dot) com.

If you know an author who would participate, please share this post with them.

I want to help us all share our love of reading with others. I want to help the indie authors get discovered by a new reader who might not have found their book any other way.

We just had our first winner selected and it is Teri Miller. Today I will be mailing to her the first five (5) books in Patricia Gilliam‘s The Hannaria Series. She is donating the series to the Starkville Public Library.

Congratuations to Teri Miller for being our very first Leighgendary Beacon. Will you be the next Leighgendary Beacon?
