. . . a-a-annndd the novel Red Glass by author Laura Resau goes to our reader, Lafreya, who was one of our Milestone Monday candidates. Congrats! Lafreya shared that she had just signed with an agent. That is such an behemoth accomplishment. If you'll email me your address, Lafreya, by clicking here, I'll get a copy out to you right away. Boy, and get ready for a treat. It is an exceptional read!
Next on our list of important announcements is that we are now just three days away from the start of our National Independent Bookseller Month. There is still time for you to send in the name of your favorite indie. We plan to feature a different one each and every day during the month of May. Please help us celebrate these very deserving souls!
Robin and I challenge you each to think of something you can do this month to honor your local independent bookseller. They continue to champion our field day after day after day with their love and knowledge of literature. Do you have a writing group or writing buddy that you can brainstorm with?
Last week, the writing group that Robin and I are in went down to a local park with a photographer and had him take some group shots of us. We plan to pick one of these photos and make a big poster for our local indie to put up that will read something like: Local Children's Authors Love to Shop at Chaucer's Books. Help Us Celebrate Them During May, National Independent Bookseller Month. Once we get it done, we'll post it here so you can see it.
This is just one way that we can bring attention to the good work that they do. We'd love to hear your ideas! We challenge YOU to do at least one thing to commemorate them in May.
The clock is ticking. Get ready, folks.
