Huge Book Giveaway – 10 Books from TA Barron

Now that Black Friday and Cyber Monday are behind us (phew!), how about a chance to make someone’s holiday extra special with a collection of books from renowned young adult author, T.A. Barron? 

Barron headshotBarron’s stories inspire children young and old all around the world. Covering vast mythical territories, his epic fantasies draw readers in and captivate their imagination while gently reminding them about their own heroic potential. As a writer, he has earned bestseller status, numerous awards, and the high praise of his peers including Lloyd Alexander, Madeleine L’Engle, and Isabel Allende. As a champion of today’s young heroes, he has created The Gloria Barron Prize for Young Heroes which honors twenty-five young people each year for their leadership, courage, and work to make the world a better place.

Barron believes that “… every child—from any background or description—can be a positive force in the world, and even do something heroic.  That’s why all my books center on a brave young person who has to dig deep to save themselves and the people and places they love.”

Using stories, he tries to help children see and believe in their potential, “As a society, unfortunately, we give kids a very mixed message about the value of their inner character qualities.  Which is why too many kids are confused about the difference between a hero and a celebrity.  And why too many kids don’t believe in their own power to make a difference.” Barron’s stories inspire his readers to step up and step into being their best selves – people who have a voice and can use it to speak up for what’s important.

Barron is best known for his epic, The Merlin Saga. This series of twelve books takes readers on an exciting adventure through a vast territory alongside a diverse cast of beautifully rendered characters. With the release of his latest novel, Atlantis Rising, Barron invites his fans to join him on a new adventure:

In a magical land called Ellegandia, a young boy named Promi scrapes by, stealing pies, cakes and sweets to survive. But little does he know that his country is a pawn in an ages-old war between good and evil, battled both in the spirit realm and in the human world. Harboring secrets of his own, Promi teams up with a courageous girl named Atlanta and the two vow to save their
land—and each other—no matter the cost. But their vow has greater repercussions than they ever could imagine—in fact, it may just bring about the creation of Atlantis, an island cut off from the rest of the world, where magic reigns supreme.


About the Giveaway: 

To help get the word out about Atlantis Rising, Barron has generously provided a special collection of his books to be given away to one lucky Fans of Being a Mom reader.

The collection includes the novella Tree Girl, the first five novels of The Merlin Saga, the second book from the Heartlight Trilogy, one of his picture books, The Hero’s Trail (his nonfiction guide to a heroic life), and – of course – Atlantis Rising:
