Isn’t this the cutest ad for a book? The wonderful Joy Chu created it for my stop on her blog, The Got Story Countdown, today. This is the final stop on my Writing Young Adult Fiction For Dummies Blog Tour, and Joy got me talking about one of my fondest publishing memories: making 4 life-size wooden men to travel the country to promote The Journey of Oliver K. Woodman by Darcy Pattison and Illustrator Joe Cepeda. I even dug up some old pictures of me and my dear husband at work on the Olivers. Fun!
And speaking of fun, my month-long party celebrating the publication of Writing Young Adult Fiction For Dummies may be coming to an end with today’s visit on The Got Story Countdown, but I’ve still got one final event up my sleeve: a FREE webinar with author/illustrator Katie Davis tomorrow, July 27. I’m very excited about teaming up with Katie for “Translating Rejection Letter Lingo: What To Do about a ‘Flat’ Story.” Seriously, this webinar is not to be missed—Katie has planned some seriously fab visuals. I hope you’ll stop by to hear my advice and take part in listener Q-and-A. [Register here.]
Phew! A week-long virtual book launch, an 8-stop blog tour, a free webinar, book and ‘free edit’ giveaways, and a dozen interviews, podcasts, and guest posts on others’ blogs. . . . It’s been a busy month, but I believe every new book deserves a party. I hope you’ve enjoyed mine.
