I received some information yesterday about a promotion Harpercollins has running to support some amazing new titles, which are mostly for MG readers. It's called the Awesome Adventure. Here's a little more about it:
Get in on the action with Awesome Adventure!
Discover new adventures from middle grade authors like Frank Cottrell Boyce (Cosmic), Megan Whelan Turner (A Conspiracy of Kings), Herbie Brennan (The Shadow Project), Maryrose Wood (The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place), Paul Adam (Max Cassidy: Escape from Shadow Island) and Jon Berkeley (The Hidden Boy) and see the stories come to life with free online games, book trailers, podcasts, and more.
The website is fantastic and there's lots of great stuff you can look at and do. For instance, there's information about the books themselves, arcade games, videos & podcasts, and an amazing sweepstakes with winners picked weekly.
Stop by and check it out. These look like some great titles and if there's a MG boy in your life who can't find anything to read, this is a great place to start.
