LUCKY WINNER OF PAT BRISSON'S DEBUT YA NOVEL
Before announcing the name of the lucky of the Comment Contest for Pat Brisson's new book, The Best and Hardest Thing I'm thrilled to share this wonderful FIVE *****starred review from the highly regarded and well-known reviewer (I'm sure you'll all recognize his name from amazon.com), Richie Partington a.k.a Richie's Picks. Here's a clip from his review:
". . .No matter whose statistics and trends you examine, there is no question that there are still far too many adolescents who lack accurate information, who engage in sex, and who engage in unprotected sex. THE BEST AND HARDEST THING is one of those high-interest books of great value that you want to get in the hands of lots of eighth and ninth graders in the hope that some of them will later recognize and respond responsibly to the developing signs of temporary hormonal insanity in their own minds." -richiespicks.com
And NOW the winner from random.com: Amy! Amy, please e-mail me by June 2nd with your full name and address to receive your autographed book. After that date the names will go back in for a new drawing. claragillowclark (@) gmail.com
So what's coming in the months ahead?
June and July, I'll be posting a summer workshop with a few surprises for writers!
Novelist Claudia Mills has agreed to talk about her forthcoming book, and also Lindsay Barrett George, author/illustrator will be sharing her new book along with a very special giveaway from both of us. Teachers/librarians won't want to miss that one!
Later on in the fall, I'll be hosting a Writing Contest with prizes, including K.L.Going's book, Writing & Selling the YA Novel.
Thanks, Pat, for sharing an inside look at the writing of The Best and Hardest Thing, and thank you, dear readers, for stopping by to comment! See you in a week.
