What are the "spotlight" features?
This is where you will learn a little more about about our sponsors and the blogs taking part in the celebration! Let's take a look at some fabulous bookish folks in this FINAL Spotlight post before the Kick-Off Event tomorrow...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Our final sponsors to join the Got Books? Event fun...


eTreasures Publishing was originally founded in 2004 on the principle of helping serious writers become published.  In late 2009, it was sold and new management is seeking to revitalize and grow the business.  We strive to provide our readers with quality books written by the best authors. 

This publisher has generously donated two print books as well as two eBooks both of your choosing to our Kick-Off Contest!  To learn more about this publisher and their growing list of publications, visit their website, bookstore, or blog!

Roy Pickering was born on the idyllic island of St. Thomas and currently resides in a quaint New Jersey town with his wife and daughter. Feeding the Squirrels is his first published novella and Patches of Grey is his debut novel. He is currently hard at work on a second novel (Matters of Convenience) as well as a series of children’s books being illustrated by his wife, the artist Erin Rogers Pickering. Archived articles from his Sports Issues column appear at Suite101.com. His prose about sports, politics, the writing life, and whatever else comes to mind can be found on an ongoing basis at the blog "A Line A Day".


Thanks to the generosity of this sponsor, we have two copies of his debut novel, Patches of Grey, to be added to the Kick-Off Contest!  For more information on this author, visit his website, or follow along on Twitter!

{indie}pendent books was formed in 2009 to not only help discover new authors, but to give them a more focused platform for selling their work to readers who are hungry for something new. All books featured on the site have been pre-selected so only the best of the indie community is showcased. At {indie}pendent books, the focus is not on filling our shelves with as many books as possible, but about making it easy for readers to find great books from authors they may not have experienced before. We are also constantly on the lookout for new authors and books to keep the selection fresh, so please check back often.


Thanks to this generous sponsor we have two titles to add to the Kick-Off Contest!  For more information, check out their site, blog, or follow along on Twitter!
