Again offered with pay-what-you-can pricing



JUNE 17th - AUGUST 11th, 2023


Want your book included? New titles accepted through July 28, 2023!


Add your book to the Kids' Summer Reads and get up to eight weeks of publicity across all of Lone Star's platforms: website, newsletter, and social media, and reaching thousands of readers.  


Our mission is to support and promote books by Texas authors and any books with a Texas connection.  We'd love to do it all for free, but we've got to keep the Lone Star Lit Lights on. All the same, we're again offering the Kids' Summer Reads with Pay-What-You-Can pricing



That means you pick the price you'll pay for advertising so you can stay within your budget.


The suggested price for a single listing is still just $150 ($175 for a series), but we understand that's not affordable for everyone. We'd rather provide a variety of quality books for our readers' perusal than a few select titles that only a select-few could afford to market. 


When you generously support us,

we can generously support you.

(Shining Stars who pay full price will enjoy some extra book love.)


To have your book(s) or series included: 

1. Complete the appropriate online form(s):

2. email with the requested images, and we'll send you an invoice.


Page Sponsorships also available.



The Lone Star Lit Kids' Summer Reads is a paid advertising opportunity.
