Two friends have started a website for teens and tweens on decorating one’s room. It’s called How To with Lindalu and Cheryl, Too. There are lots of fun ideas there for decorating inexpensively, but with sizzle!
What’s this got to do with books? Lindalu and Cheryl are compiling a book that will accompany the site, and are currently presenting (with flair and color) to library audiences. (Hey, you program planners who are looking for something unique–this could be it!)
Drop by the site and give them a “like,” if you’re so inclined. Even better, contact them about a program. I can’t wait for the book to come out, too.
The winner (drawn randomly from those who entered) of a pdf version of HOW TO PROMOTE YOUR CHILDREN’S BOOK by Katie Davis is Vanessa Morris. Yay, Vanessa! And a big thanks to all who entered the drawing for the free book, and who subscribed to my blog. Keep posted for future interviews and freebies.
Elizabeth M. is the winner of the free 2012 Children’s Writer’s & Illustrator’s Market, published by Writer’s Digest Books. (Thank you, Chuck Sambuchino!) The CWIM giveaway was in support of all the writing done this month by folks signed up for the National Novel Writing Month, Picture Book Idea Month, or Picture Book Month–as well as those simply nurturing their muses this past November.
Congratulations to all of you!
One of the requirements of the drawing was to relay what you each did to feed your muse in November. Elizabeth says,
“I went to “Courting the Muse,” Michigan Writers’ and NWMU’s one-day workhshop for writers and heard/met Jack Driscoll and Fleda Brown, and to MSU’s RCAH Visiting Poet’s Series presentation with Jack Ridl.”
Continue feeding those muses!
