Holly Schindler is launching a pre-order campaign for FERAL! In the next few months, she is going to be posting some sneak-peek readings of the first few pages of the book.
While the book is available in ARC / e-galley form right now, no site (Amazon, etc.) is offering “Look Inside” views into the opening of FERAL. By participating in the campaign, I will be offering you, my followers a glimpse of the book that’s not available anywhere else—and helping to get FERAL into your hands!
To pre-order Feral take a look on Holly's website for more information

An exciting event taking place during this year’s Independent Bookseller’s Week: the IBW Bookshop Crawl, being held nationwide on Saturday 5th July.
This is a brand new event for this year’s IBW, aimed at bloggers, booktubers, and vloggers who want to support their local bookshop and get involved in IBW. The challenge is simple: visit as many independent bookshops as possible in your area on the day and blog / post a video about it for your chance to win an exciting prize which includes a hefty amount of book tokens and the entire shortlist of both the Adult and Children’s IBW Book Prize (full details below). This is the largest event of its kind that has been held in support of independent bookshops and we’d love you to get on board.
Independent booksellers across the country will be equipped with stickers, designed specifically for the crawl, to hand out to participants. On top of this, the IBW team have created some great banners for blogs and YouTube channels that will be available to all those taking part, with a more specific banner for the overall winner.
