About our friends at is the brainchild of April Floyd and Elizabeth Ann West. Over two years ago, April Floyd started a community to share Nook deals back before there were many sites promoting any kind of ebook deals.

As device popularity shifted to include Kindles in her group, she began offering both Nook and Kindle deals on blogs and Facebook pages. To April, the thousands of followers her ebook communities now include are just an extended network of her best reading friends.

In mid-2012, April invited Elizabeth to join the Piggy Team, sharing all things “cheap” for an ereader. Elizabeth’s background as a published author and over five years in online marketing was a great fit to April’s existing relationship with readers and what makes them giddy to click “Buy Now!”

In August of 2012, the old site,, opened the doors for paid sponsorships from publishers, authors, and app developers and more technical wizardry for games and giveaways for the most loyal Piggies. The new direction of the Piggy Team is to create a safe, productive space where our authors and readers mingle and help shape the future of ebook publishing through purchases, feedback, and support.

“If you love to read, love to save money, and have something to say about your favorite books, you’re home!”

February of 2013, success and growth have prompted the Piggy Team to tackle new heights. We have moved to a new domain name,

Bri Lloyd has signed on as our social media director to make sure we reach more readers with a little “piggie” in them: looking to save money on their ebooks and download deals.

Tobi Helton is our new editor for all content on coming from a background of book reviews with her own site, Forget the Housework, I’m Reading.

April and Elizabeth are the piggy fire brigade, putting out flare ups as this industry is ever changing and making sure no matter what happens, our readers and authors know we are here for them.
