I am really excited about today’s giveaway. I have two books to give away from Bluewater Comics Female Force series, and I bet some of your teenagers or even you Twilight fans will be totally excited about one of them–a comic book about Stephenie Meyer’s life! Scroll down to the *** to find out how to win one of the Female Force books. The other giveaway is pretty exciting too–four biographies about four pretty strong women in politics.
So here’s the Female Force comic book series concept–the writer takes a famous and strong female, such as Stephenie Meyer, and writes her biography as a comic book or graphic novel. I think this is a marvelous idea! Not only do they do a book on a famous author that everybody is crazy about (they have one on J. K. Rowling too), but they also have comic book biographies about Sarah Palin, Michelle Obama, Hilary Clinton, and Caroline Kennedy.
That’s the other book I have to give away, too–a Female Force book with all four comic biographies of these famous women in politics. I would say this book would appeal to tweens and young adults–middle grade readers might be bored with the politics. If tweens and teens have to read a biography full of facts about one of these women, why not do it comic book style? The important thing is they learn from it. Stephenie Meyer’s biography and history of Forks could appeal to fifth graders on up–basically her Twilight audience.
Bluewater Productions has several other Female Force books which you can check out here. This series seems to be pretty popular; and according to their home page, they are planning more books on celebrities such as Ellen Degeneres and Barbara Walters.
You could use these books to show students and your children that nonfiction books can be fun and interesting, just like fiction, and you can learn so much from them. You can also use them to show kids and teens that if you set your mind on a goal and follow your dreams, you can accomplish anything–these women sure have!
So, what do you have to do to win one of these books?
