I have a bunch of random stuff to share with you today.
First of all, a big CONGRATULATIONS to Sabrina! She has won a copy of Moon Over Manifest by commenting on last week’s blog post. Hurray! I love giving away books. Thank you, everyone, for all the great comments, as always.
Next, I want to share a great place to have bookmarks made. I’ve had a horrible time finding a vendor to create and print the kind of bookmarks I envisioned for Dog Gone and Buck Fever. I’ll just say that I kept getting sort of lackluster designs and less than impressive quality for ridiculous amounts of funds. I ran into huge headaches trying to order online, as well. Recently, another author in Kidlit Authors Club recommended Iconix.biz (http://iconix.biz/ ). Kelley at Iconix was amazing, the process was easy, and I have new, beautiful bookmarks on the way for an impressive price. I am beyond thrilled and ever so grateful. If you ever need bookmarks designed and printed, consider contacting Kelley at Iconix.biz.
In other news, if you happen to be in the Philadelphia area this coming weekend (April 9th and 10th), some of the authors from the KidLit Authors Club (http://www.kidlitauthorsclub.com/ ) will be at Big Blue Marble Books for the Mt. Airy Kids' Literary Festival. I’ll be there on Saturdaymorning (11 A.M.), reading from Buck Fever and signing books.
Next week some of the gang from the KidLit Authors Club (including me) will be at the Springfield, N.J. Barnes and Noble Educator Event on Tuesday afternoon and then at the Paramus, N.J. Barnes and Noble Educator Event on Wednesday afternoon. Lots of fun, I promise.
Last but not least, some of us will be at the Clark Public Library in Clark, N.J. at 2 P.M. on Sunday, April 17th. Again, if you’re in the area, stop by! We’ll be reading from our books, giving away goodies, and generally sharing the love of reading and writing. It is beyond wonderful to be able to promote with such talented and genuinely nice authors.
Okay, that’s all for now. Tell me, what’s going on with you?
