Calling all MG, YA, and NA authors. I love having you visit my page and giving you one more place to promote your books. I'm going to do two themes coming up, so please let me know if you'd like to jump aboard and try one of them out.
I had so much fun with my blog in February when several authors joined me to write love letters based on their books, that I thought I would try another fun challenge. For May, I want to do a Mother's Day theme. I thought it would be fun for each author to do a summary or synopsis of their book from the mom's point of view. It might go something like this (my example for TFIOS):
My daughter has cancer. I'm trying to be brave about it, but it's hard. I take her to her social group at the church and sit outside while she meets with her friends. She started dating this nice boy who is from her cancer group and is missing a leg. I wasn't sure about it at first, but he seems to genuinely care for her. He even read her favorite book for her. Well, Hazel, my daughter, gave up her wish a long time ago to go to Disneyland, and this boy, Augustus, offered to use his wish to take her (and me) to Europe to meet the author of this book. I didn't want to let her go at first. It was going to be too hard. But we found a way. I'm letting them have as much privacy as I can while they go around the city, but it's hard. I want to be right there all the time. I know there isn't a lot of time left, but I also know I want her to be happy and enjoy love while she has it.
Then, in June, I'd like to do a Father's Day theme where you could share an excerpt from your book that features a dad.
So..... if you think either of those challenges would be fun. Drop me a note, and we'll figure out a date for your book. MG, YA or NA only please. email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
