Hi! Thanks for stopping by! This week has been very exciting for me! I got word from my Publisher that they are shooting for a St. Patricks Day release! I had to get my final copy of The Wish (with a few more changes added) in by Wednesday at 6p. Which I did, with a few hours to spare! The plan is, as long as I got my final copy in by 6p Wednesday, they are supposed to notify me by Monday, 2/15 of the definite release date. I’m hoping this happens, because what better day to release a Celtic Mythology book but on St. Patrick’s Day!? I’ve had an unbelievable amount of support from a local librarian Paige, as well as some 7th grade teachers, Molly, Julie B., Josh and Julie K., in helping promote my book, getting kids excited about The Wish and keeping my confidence up regarding its success. These teachers and librarian are all educators at Geneva Middle School South and I feel lucky beyond words to have them be on my team!
With this new information of a possible release next month, we have begun to prioritize what needs to get done. First on our list is to finish the trailer. We’ve made some great progress and I’m optimistic it should be up for you to see in the next 1-2 weeks! Also, looking to begin placing orders for posters, t-shirts, etc for its release!
If you or someone you know would like for me to come visit their school, bookstore, library etc., I’d appreciate your passing my name along. Currently, all my visits are done for free as I feel very strongly in promoting childhood literacy, writing and encouraging children to follow their dreams as I have.
Thank you once again for all your continued support. Having you along for the ride in this unbelievable journey had been so wonderful. I’ve loved getting messages posted regarding the website, the sneak peek of the first two chapters and the quiz.
If I hear from the publisher on Monday 2/15 regarding the release date, I will be posting a blog then. So, look for a “bonus blog” on Monday. Follow me on Twitter or Facebook as I always give updates there as well.
Have a great weekend!
Til next week…
