As it is Children's Book Week, I felt it was the perfect time to celebrate!
Celebrate what, you may ask?
Well, we've reached-
So here's to all of you! Yes, you! Over there! With your nose in a book!
My readers, first and foremost, are to be celebrated. You now number just over 3,000 in less than three years. That's so crazy/amazing/unbelievable/beautiful/heart-flutteringly brill.
And now for some people and organizations who I'm thanking with the prizes available for YOU to win!
A big thank you to Walden Pond Press & Kit Grinstaff, both featured in the MG prize pack.
Walden Pond for the wonderful relationship they've cultivated with bloggers all around the 'sphere, and specifically to Kellie, for being my MG supplier. I often need a fix.
Kit Grindstaff for taking a chance on Mod Podge Marketing. Kit was technically my first author to fly under the company's official banner, and I will never thank her enough for that.
And now to celebrate two of my favorite authors, and favorite friends, from the debut class of 2010, Lauren Destefano & Michelle Hodkin.
Lauren & I are in a band with Dia Reeves. It was formed on Twitter, sadly has never made a public appearance, and is, most likely, an urban legend, but still.
Michelle, oh, my dear Michie. Told you that you rocked harder than Taylor Lautner's abs! Wait, what?
This Shadow Hills poster was sent to me the year Mod Podge first hit the scene, 2010, and I've saved it for a very special moment, like this one.
Now here's an interesting stash. Two 2013 debuts, and one novel by a familiar author.
I've said it before and I'll say it again. Carolyn Meyer is one of the top five reasons you're reading this blog today. With my mother's unwavering vocal chords as she read to me-- doing all the voices-- since I came home from the hospital being number one, Carolyn is a very likely runner-up for my love of the written word. I've been reading her books since I was in primary school and now I'm all "growed up!" Being able to partner with her here on MPB remains a pinch-me sorta deal.
A.G. Howard, author of Splintered, is one of my very bestest and I am pleased to call her Anita and friend and 'Hey, you!,' whatever'll get her attention fastest.
The Winter in Wonderland: 12 Days of Splintered blog tour proposal won over the folks at Abrams/Amulet and the official blog tour note you can see on the back of this ARC refers to a Mod Podge Blog Tour. That was a huge milestone for me and for all things Mod Podge!
And representing HarperCollins/HarperTeen, a stoic supporter of MPB through all its various imprints, is The Madman's Daughter, the debut EVERYONE wants to read, and rightly so!
Thank you to everyone involved in any way with 3,000 Mod Podge Books!
