Dear Readers,

Thanks so much for stopping by this past week to celebrate with Pamela Jane about her ghoulishly good book, A VAMPIRE COMES TO DINNER! TEN RULES TO FOLLOW   Special thanks to everyone who shared a RULE they would make if a vampire was coming to their house for dinner. It really added to the fun for Pamela and me! If you haven't checked out her web-site yet, here's the link again: 

I know you're all eager to find out just which of you is the LUCKY WINNER, but first, a reminder of what's coming! I'm really excited about my fall lineup.

Next week, we'll be celebrating another BOOK BIRTHDAY! Claudia Mills will be sharing about her new middle grade book, One Square Inch. Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (BCCB) wrote this: "Won't someone think of middle-graders? Fortunately, Claudia Mills does. . .with continued perception, humor, and sympathy."  Claudia is donating an autographed copy of the book! Exciting!

In September, Lindsay Barrett George, will be here with her new book, Maggie's Ball. She writes and illustrates, and she'll be sharing about that. Plus, she has an extra special giveaway for readers along with a copy of the book.

In October, Hilary Wagner will be our guest! Have you seen previews of her new book? Exciting. And she's donating an autographed copy! A mystery guest will stop by for Halloween!

Other author guests will be Melissa Wyatt, Linda Oatman High, and, as a wrap up for the year, K.L.Going and a YA writing contest sponsored by yours truly.

And the WINNER of A Vampire is Coming to Dinner! Ten Rules to Follow is: Kimberly Lynn

Kimberly, please e-mail me (claragillowclark(@)gmail(dot)com) with your home address and your autographed book will soon be be on its way!
