Over 300 copies given away in free book promotion. Reviews needed.

The free promotion for The sleepy Prince & the sleepy Princess went really well. I “sold” over 300 copies of my books. I’ve been super busy this week with family visiting and didn’t have time to catch up, but I have to admit I am feeling a bit sad to find out that, after giving away so many copies, not a single recipient of the offer has taken a moment to write a quick review in return for free kid’s books. 32 more words

Antsy Does Time

Author: Neal Shusterman

Fourteen-year-old Anthony Bonano (better known as Antsy) is having a relatively uneventful Thanksgiving day, watching football and parades with his friends–basically just killing time until he has to be at his parents’ restaurant to work that evening–when a parade float gets loose, taking some of its handlers along for a dangerous ride. 314 more words

[ARC] The Cheshire Cheese Cat: A Dickens of a Tale by Carmen Agra Deedy

Un gatto, un topo e la taverna col miglior formaggio di Londra e tra gli avventori alcuni scrittori ben noti, tra questi Charles Dickens.

L’autrice costruisce una storia su un’amicizia particolare tra alcuni animali molto diversi tra loro ma motivati da uno scopo comune: mettere le zampe sul formaggio e riportare alla torre uno dei corvi reali che se ne è allontanato. 212 more words

W11: A (Very) Little Treat

Hello friends! It’s been quite a while hasn’t it? Almost a month? My deepest apologies for my absence. It had absolutely nothing to do with a small government department whose name rhymes with FEILD, not was it in ANY way related to stoping a nefarious organization that originated in the early twentieth century. 1,666 more words

[ARC] Mark Twain & Cozy Classic

All modern American literature comes from one book by Mark Twain called ‘Huckleberry Finn.’ If you read it you must stop where the Nigger Jim is stolen from the boys.
