Interviewing my Author Friends


Look what arrived for me today! Yay!

If you’re not familiar with Beth Kephart, you can read my interview here. And over at My Friend Amy’s blog, Amy and Lenore throwing a book drive party with fabulous prizes. They are trying to get 200 sales for Beth through their blog, so if you haven’t bought the book yet, do it through their link.

I’ve enjoyed interviewing authors on my blog, and I have to say, I’ve noticed a trend…these friends of mine are doing well, winning awards and gaining momentum in the marketplace. And who, you may ask, is this happening to? Well, since being interviewed on my blog:

β€’ Jessica Burkhart‘s Canterwood Crest series has been optioned for a TV series or movie, and the first book of the series has gone to reprint.

β€’ Thalia Chaltas was named as a Flying Start author by Publisher’s Weekly. Her book, Because I am Furniture, is also going into a second run.

β€’ Val Hobbs’ book Sheep was chosen as this year’s California Young Reader Medal winner for intermediate readers. Sheep was extremely popular in hard cover and was reprinted in paperback in April.

I love success stories. I’m so excited for all of them and thrilled that I got to share their stories here on my blog. Now, I’m off to the sofa. The kids are gone, the house is clean, and I can’t wait to read Nothing but Ghosts.

Have a great weekend!
