Awards wha...?

I found out yesterday that Secrets of the Mine was nominated for an Indie ReCon Live award for best new children's book. I'm so excited! I never win anything, not even scratch off lottery tickets, so being nominated for something other than biggest dork ever (according to my kids, I'm the unanimous winner every single day) feels kind of amazeballs.



If you'd like to vote, please do. If you want to vote for me, even better! (Shameless self promotion? Guilty!) Here's the link right to where you vote for Secrets of the Mine, if you want. I will love you forever and ever. Ok, I love you anyway, but this will make me love you more.

Being West Is Best

Since my latest offering to the literary canon is a midgrade novel, I thought it would be fun to showcase another MG author. Monique Bucheger is touring the blogosphere with her new release Being West is Best. It's getting solid reviews, and it's perfect for your tween reader!



What are reviewers saying?

Rebekah Lyn's New Release, Jessie

FLORIDA. This author is from Florida, therefore I already love her. If you know me at all, you know that no matter where I live (and I've been all over) Florida will always be my home. I'm thrilled to host Rebekah Lyn and her new release Jessie, because I too lived near the Kennedy Space Center. I call tell you that there is nothing so spectacular as watching the space shuttle light up the sky during a night launch, or watching a launch from the beach miles away and the sheer force of thrust rumbles the ground enough so the individual specks of sand dance. It's amazing! Looking forward to reading this!


Jessie's story spans almost a decade, January 31, 1961 to July 20, 1969. I hope readers enjoy this excerpt. The beach chapter is one of my favorites. ~Rebekah Lyn

“Come inside to change,” Eleanor instructed. The sternness in her voice caused Jessie to look at her. He took in her red cheeks and Mrs. Maisey’s hand covering an embarrassed smile.
