CJ Carmichael: Summer Reads & Working Together

Happy Independence Day to all of you American Readers! As a Canadian, I’m happy to live next-door to a country that celebrates the coming together of vast spaces and diverse peoples into one amazing country.

Joining forces works on small scale ventures, too. When authors decide to band together, both readers and authors can benefit. This spring I was invited to join a group called the InkHeart Authors. At first I was intimidated to hang out with a group with so many New York and USA Today bestselling authors, but guess what? InkHeart is full of friendly and generous people. Not to mention busy. Here’s what we’ve been working on for our summer project:

You may wonder why authors would bundle their books and sell them for such low prices. Well, we want to find new readers – and that means you! The catch is that these boxed sets will only be available for the month of July. Here’s a preview of what to expect:
