A Special Valentine

I participated in Kids - Heart - Authors Day today, at Oblong Books in Millerton, NY. It took me a long commuter train ride to get there, but it was worth it. I signed books alongside fellow children's book author Nancy Castaldo. It was fun to see a new bookstore and meet new people. One person bought ten copies of The Rock and the River! She was a teacher, who wanted to use the book in her classroom. I'm pretty sure that was my biggest single sale so far. Very exciting!

Fuse #8 Blog Review

I'm pleased to report that a new review was posted about The Rock and the River on A Fuse #8 Production, a blog on School Library Journal, in which kidlit blogger/reviewer Elizabeth Bird refers to the book as "a smart, sensible, deeply layered title."

The in-depth review highlights the books strengths and uniqueness in the children's book market.
