breaking away from the pack

Breakaway Media publishes The Summer Book Club

By on June 29, 2011 in Uncategorized

Remember when going on vacation meant filling your suitcase with hefty volumes that threatened to tip you over the baggage allowance limit? The last minute dash into the airport bookshop and the desperate quest to find something to entertain you on the plane and the beach?

Thanks to the Kindle and other e-readers, those days are gone. What to take? How do you choose from the hundreds of thousands of books available?

We set up The Summer Book Club to help you overcome that tricky problem this summer, whether you’re going away or relaxing in the garden. We handpicked eight books to entertain, thrill and enlighten you; make you laugh or shiver with fear. The eight authors in this anthology are all ‘indie’ writers who took their destiny into their own hands and self-published. All enjoy considerable success on Amazon, selling many thousands of copies and pulling in great reviews.

In this book you will find exclusive short stories and articles from these authors along with first chapters from each of the eight books specially selected for the Club. If you like what you read, all the books are available on Amazon right now.

This anthology is only the beginning. Connect with other readers and talk about the books with the authors on our Facebook page at

Each week during the summer of 2011, the Club will feature a different book from one of the participating authors, from a range of genres to suit all tastes from thriller to romance to paranormal.

All authors’ royalties from the sale of this book go to help victims of the recent tornado that hit Joplin Missouri. We will donate all royalties to a fund supporting members of staff at the Joplin Public Library.

Happy reading – whatever you’re doing and wherever you’re going this summer.
