Brighter Books is collaborating with Eco-Libris to plant a tree for every printed copy of their books!

We're happy to announce on a new partnership with Brighter Books, a new independent publishing house dedicated to bringing only the best books to life. A tree will be planted with Eco-Libris for every book published by Brighter Brains, starting with "The Guardian" by C.J. Gosling.

Brighter Books Publishing House was founded by Angela and Dean Jurgensen, a couple with a diverse background. Angela is a Brazilian artist, illustrator, writer and business owner, who grew up surrounded by fiction books, particularly the classics; Dean is a Canadian electronic engineer with a passion for learning new things, who spends most of his free time reading educational books. They have a positive outlook for the world, as long as everyone does their part to make the world a better place; Brighter Books Publishing House is their attempt to do their part.

Here is their mission statement:

At Brighter Books Publishing House, we believe books are alive, and they have the power to change people. Our mission is to make books that challenge and excite our readers; that feed their hungry minds; that expand their horizons and open up the doors to their imagination. We want our books to help make people better, to connect families and to help people grow.

We want to bridge the old with the new by going back to the reason books were first made, making only the highest quality literature and products. At the same time, we want to ensure we do our part to preserve the Earth for future generations, keeping it green and leaving the smallest footprint possible behind.

Brighter Books has already an upcoming list of wonderful books that will be published later on this year. As we mentioned, their first book is "The Guardian" by C.J. Gosling and it was released earlier this week. One tree will be planted with Eco-Libris for every printed copy of this great book, and already, 300 trees have been planted for its printed copies!

Here's more about "The Guardian":

A hidden world, known as the Shadowlands, threatens ours with darkness and magical violence. To protect both worlds, boundary lines were drawn. No one can cross from one to the other without risking open war.

After the fire that killed Tavin’s mother, his grief-stricken father disappeared, abandoning him and his sister Moreanna. Tavin and Moreanna share a secret psychic connection. Sometimes, her presence is the only thing that keeps Tavin sane. When a mysterious sickness threatens Moreanna’s life, Tavin`s connection to his sister begins to fade. With the discovery of a magical universe through a hidden door in his grandfather`s attic, Tavin desperately hopes a cure may be within his grasp.

“No trespassing” becomes an easy rule to break.

The Guardian is an amazing page-turner; everyone will fall in love with the characters, and wonder what will happen in the sequel.

You can find "The Guardian" on Amazon and it's also available for purchase as an e-book. You're also welcome to follow Brighter Books on twitter and Facebook.
