It’s Creative Sunday, and therefore an appropriate moment for me to screech for joy to all my Habithacker friends:
My hardcover picture book for kids 4-8 years old, The 5,000 Friends of Veronica Veetch, has been published!
My manuscript was accepted a while ago, but alas, the book world does not move as quickly as you do when your mother-in-law rings the doorbell. (Advice: stow dirty towels between couch cushions, craft debris under furniture, then, panting, announce that your Zumba hour’s been interrupted.)
But I digress.
The 5,000 Friends of Veronica Veetch is a celebration of the wonders of reading, books, libraries, and friendship, charmingly illustrated by the talented Launie Parry.
Of course, even though I’m luring you in with a giveaway, I will send you a virtual smooch if you purchase a copy and then call me brilliant on Amazon and Goodreads. You and I will realize that’s a lie, but others don’t have to know I misplaced my swimsuit on my closet floor in 1992 and haven’t found it since.
If you purchase from Bailiwick Press, you’ll get an autographed copy. If I receive the Nobel Prize for Best Toilet Cleaning Advice (that’s a thing, right?), you can resell the book for a buck more than you paid!
But for a chance to win a FREE copy—and who doesn’t like free stuff?—here’s the scoop:
