THERE IS NO CHARGE TO BE LISTED on this blog, however I do ask for a reciprocal link to Cool School Visits, at www.coolschoolvisits.com . (Check it out! I offer lots of free advice about doing school visits!) Sorry, except for a few close friends, I can only list you in your home state.
MY DEFINITION OF "TRADITIONALLY PUBLISHED"...If you're with a publisher you know I'll recognize, write to me and I'll add you. If you have any doubts, CLICK THIS LINK and scroll down to a list approved on SCBWI's "Published and Listed" (PAL) list. If you see your publisher on this list, write to me. If not, then you're with a publisher too obscure to be added. I don't want these author lists to become so lengthy that the site loses its original intent: to save educators time when "shopping" for an author.
Here's my latest book, THE GREAT CHRISTMAS CRISIS, published by Sterling Children's Books and illustrated by the talented Jannie Ho. It's a sequel (of sorts) to THE GREAT REINDEER rebellion, written by the late Lisa Trumbauer, published by Sterling in 2009.
Both books are fun and funny (if I do say so myself!) but they're also lush and fun to hold, with embossed illustrations on every page, spot varnished to give each layout a 3-D effect that kids will love to touch. Kind of like fancy old Christmas cards.
