Shameless Self Promotion Saturday!


Daphne Grab announces her second sale!

The Wonder Years meets Dairy Queen in HALFTIME a Middle Grade novel about a twelve year old football fanatic who doesn't actually play the sport until his long lost half-brother, and the best college football player in the league, shows up in time for middle school team tryouts, tackling bullies, and talking to girls.

Terri Clark has a new novella on stores shelves in the YA anthology BREAKING UP IS HARD TO DO with Ellen Hopkins, Lynda Sandoval and Niki Burnham. Kirkus said this “box of candy for the lovelorn satisfies” and Book Chic called Terri’s story “an extremely hilarious paranormal story that has a very awesome girl power message." For Book Chic’s review, plus exclusive mini-interviews with the authors, visit here.

The School Library Journal gave our own M.P. Barker a thumb’s up for A DIFFICULT BOY saying, “Like L. M. Elliott's Give Me Liberty (HarperCollins, 2006), this is an eye-opening look at indentured servitude in American history." Click here to read it.

The Compulsive Reader loves Daphne Grab's ALIVE AND WELL IN PRAGUE, NEW YORK. “Smooth, empathetic writing will easily reel in readers by the hordes as she artfully portrays the hurt of everyone knowing your business in a small town, and the joy of true friends.” Witness the gushing here.

Abby the Librarian said Elizabeth C. Bunce’s A CURSE DARK AS GOLD “is a book to lose yourself in, a deep story you can really sink your teeth in.” Give it a look-see.

Julie M. Prince of YABooksCentral had this to say about Sarah Prineas’ THE MAGIC THIEF, “I didn’t leave my house from the time I started the book until I finished it the next day.” Check out the rave review in its entirety!
