If this little video doesn't make the teenage girl inside of you want to curl up in a cozy nook with a good book, I don't know what will. Kids Can Press put together a super sweet trailer introducing their new Young Adult Imprint, KCP Loft, and the four books they will publish this Spring. I think it's pretty cool how they gave a little wink/nod in the video to details from the books. Like, for Zenn Diagram, they have the book sitting by paint brushes and Zenn is an artist. Awww!
Anyway, I'm still working on getting my Advance Reading Copies out to various educators, bloggers, librarians, and friends. I had teacher conferences this week and gave a couple copies to my kids' English teachers. That felt kind of scary! Like, handing it over and saying, "Here ... I wrote this. Um ... hope you like it?" If you know of someone who has some influence in the teenage reading world, give me a shout and I'll try to get you a copy. If you've read it already and want to write me a review, head on over to Good Reads. I'm hovering at a 4 star rating right now, which is awesome, but I'd love to hear what more people think! Just ... be honest but gentle. :-)
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! I sure have so much to be thankful for this year.
