TA Barron 18 YA books #Giveaway $150 value! Hurry Flash Giveaway from #GoodNCrazyMy bad. Didn’t mean to be all stalker-ish.

In case you don’t already know who T.A. Barron is or maybe you haven’t met the characters in his LARGE library of books… first there’s… a certain boy who-would-be Merlin? Or a savvy street urchin kid in his newest series about the lost Island of Atlantis? And several other quirky, yet strong and smart kids who capture your mind and then your heart within a few pages.

Here’s the thing.

Mr. Barron is NOT one of those authors with no time for his fans. I dare you. Reach out to him on Twitter— he’s @TABarronAuthor.

Check out his Facebook page and see if he doesn’t respond when you request a super-secret insider’s tip about his new releases this spring?

I’m not even a kid but first… I enjoy his books.
And second… Mr. Barron happily gives me a few minutes of his time when I reach out to him using social media. I’m just FLAT IMPRESSED with him as an author—a father and as a real life human on the other end of the keyboard.

Because we love his books {and him!} we are THRILLED to be giving away nearly his whole library of books in one GIANT #GoodNCrazy giveaway! We thought it was a perfect fit for our month of Smart Kids Smart Fun!

    My favorite book was (and possibly still is!) The Hero and the Crown. My nine year old is currently finishing up Harry Potter, but she likes so many different books/authors, that she reads more than one book at a time. So throw in a Choose Your Own Adventure book, a couple about Martha Washington (school report) and other ones I don’t even know about, and that is what she is reading RIGHT now. Her current fave and re-read is Nightmares by Jason Segel and Kirsten Miller.

  15. January 27, 2015

    I enjoyed lots of sci-fi and fantasy when I was a kid – Terry Brooks, Patricia Wrede, Isaac Asimov. My son just finished all of the Gregor the Overlander books by Suzanne Collins. He needs something new to read! 🙂

    A book that really impressed me and that I have never forgotten was BEAUTIFUL JOE, about a dog that kept getting into the chickens’ nests and eating the eggs. I also loved reading about King Author, etc. My granddaughter has been reading the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books.

    I loved Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys when I was younger. Still like them, but the older books can be a little hard for me to read now because I can recognize how outdated the dialogue is. I read The Ancient One in either middle school or high school and didn’t find out until fairly recently that it was the second book in The Heartlight Saga. I really liked it and can still remember the poem from the book.

  22. Othella permalink
