Introducing The Indelibles

Welcome to The Indelibles Blog Hop!

In celebration of our official launch, we are giving away a KINDLE FIRE! If you’d like to start at the beginning of the INDELIBLES ON FIRE GIVEAWAY BLOG HOP, then please start here:

If you are already mid-hop, then welcome to your next stop! By following the link at the bottom of this post, you can proceed to the next author (and check out the awesome, individual giveaways we are doing along the way!). If you are entering to win the KINDLE FIRE, don’t forget to make a note of the keyword at the end of every blog post - the words spell out a phrase you will need to enter the contest on the last stop.

Marketing guru Shelli Johannes Wells has teamed up with twenty-four other indie and small press authors to bring you the Indelibles.

“We are indie authors who write middle grade and young adult fiction.
We are dedicated to leaving a permanent mark on the world with our stories and words.
We are The Indelibles.”

Each week, we’ll explore fun, fabulous, and fierce topics for today’s teens, drawing on pop culture and themes from the books we write. Check out our official launch Monday, January 9th for fun giveaways at We’ll also be having a “blogger” chat on January 11th and a writer/author chat on the 18th to answer questions about self and indie pubbing. See our blog for details.

And now with no further ado, I will introduce myself: Karly Kirkpatrick

I love reading and writing YA lit. By day, I teach high school students German and French, and by night I write! I love to travel as well and also love spending time with my husband and daughter. I'm also a Harry Potter fanatic, I write all my books in my special Harry Potter room.

You can follow me several ways:
● Facebook
● Twitter

Leave a comment below if you'd like to be included in a drawing of an EBOOK for one of my four titles. Please include your email address as well as your preferred file (Kindle/Nook).


You can also find my books at the following locations:

Bloody Little Secrets
Barnes and Noble

The Green
Coming VERY Soon!


Into the Shadows

Blood Little Secrets and Into the Shadows are also available in paperback at various outlets!

The keyword for this stop on the hop is: FUN
