Welcome to ChaBooCha Lite 2015! #ChaBooChaLite


It's time for ChaBooCha Lite! It starts today!

For those of you who did not participate in ChaBooCha Lite last year and are wondering what it is, ChaBooCha Lite is a "light" version of the Chapter Book Challenge. ChaBooCha Lite is another chance to write an early reader, chapter book, middle grade book or YA novel within a month. The premise is the same as the premise of March's Chapter Book Challenge. (The Lite challenge will have less prizes and less guest blog posts.) You will still be trying to wr
ite your book during the 30 days of the month, but instead of running in March, ChaBooCha Lite runs in September. It's also completely acceptable for you to finish a book previously begun or to edit one you have already written, as long as you complete the work in September.

Feel free to peruse previous blog posts from a variety of published authors and agents. Here's a list of a selection of posts:

  5. How could I have forgotten September means ChaBooCha Lite? I've been reworking my novel from March and just finished KidLitSummerSchool's plotting workshop. Hmm. Maybe I can pull this together. BTW, great badge!

  17. As the use of the internet is growing, illegal activities are increasing too. Piracy downloading website is one of those cybercrimes. There are hundreds of piracy websites including movierulz vpn, YTS, and 9xmovies on the internet. They have been leaking pirated movies on their portals.
