Before the Split Blog Tour!

Blog Tour

Before the Split Blog Tour: 

To honor National Domestic Violence Awareness month, author Swati Avasthi is combining a blog tour for her debut novel, Split, with a fundraiser for Family Violence Prevention Fund.  She’ll be on twenty-six blogs with contests, cut scenes, and guest posts about Split and will donate $1/comment with a goal and cap of $250.  If she receives 250 comments, she’ll double her donation.  She has a lot of fund raising help from more than 40 agents, editors and authors who have donated personalized books, memberships, and critiques for an online auction.  Follow the tour, get stuff you want, and help out a great cause all at once. 

I read and reviewed Split in April and it has remained one of my favorite books this year. All these months later I still wonder where the characters are now - how they are doing. It's a very powerful story with a unique perspective on the topic of domestic violence.

I'm proud to be part of Before the Split Blog Tour. Swati will be here on Monday October 4th with a guest post. She will be donating $1 for every comment made on her posts (up to a $250 cap for the tour) to Family Violence Prevention Fund. I will pledge to donate an additional $1 per comment on my blog up to a cap of $50, so please be sure to visit on Monday, read the post and leave a comment. I will also be giving away a copy of Split!
I'll be re posting my review of Split on Tuesday.

So again ......please come back here Monday October 4th to comment to help raise awareness and money for the prevention of domestic violence.

Stop at The Teen Book Scene for complete tour and auctions details.
