Twitter Authors

Twitter Authors highlights hard-working, but perhaps lesser-known authors and give them a shout-out.  I invite you to read their books, and let me know if you liked them. Each month, I’ll choose a Twitter author’s book to read. Maybe we’ll find a book before it becomes the next NY Times Bestseller!

  15. Thanks for the shout-out! My Princesses Learn to Be Brave has a good lesson for any kid who faces bullying…and any parent who wants to teach their daughter good character. It releases in September 2014.

      Funny, I should have realized that your book was not available yet! I even went to my local library to request an interlibrary book and where it asked the publication date, I typed in “September 2014” and then submitted my request. They are probably looking at the request with a very confused expression.

      This makes my July reading assignments even easier. , I will definitely look for your book when it comes out in September. In the meantime, I’m still smiling at my silliness…Thanks!
