Free Books for Teachers

For a limited time, I'm offering a free ebook copy of Rosa, Sola for teachers to preview for possible classroom use. (If you'd prefer to receive an autographed paperback copy, I'll mail a copy to a U.S. address for only $3.99 postage/handling.) Both the ebook and paperback editions include a "Discussion Questions" section specifically for classroom discussion. If you or someone you know teaches grades 4-8 and would like more information, email me via the link in the left sidebar or use the form on the Contact & Press Kit page.

 

I confess, I got the idea to extend this offer from author A. J. Cattapan. She's currently giving away free ebook copies of her novels, Angelhood and Seven Riddles to Nowhere, to teachers interested in previewing them for use in their classrooms. See her website for details.

Interviews, Reviews, and What I Did This Summer

Me, presenting "Coping with Your Inner Critic" at the Catholic Writers Guild Conference in July, 2016


The Goodreads giveaway of the revised edition of Rosa, Sola was a great success, with over 600 entries! I mailed off the three copies this morning. I hope the winners enjoy the novel.

In honor of the new release of Rosa, Sola, I was interviewed for the VCFA Launchpad blog--they asked lots of questions about how the story came to be written and published. You can see the post here.

Also, today, Barb Grady Szyszkiewicz posted a lovely review of the novel at CatholicMom.com. She included some great character interview questions at the end of the review. I hope you'll head over to read the responses.

Rosa, Sola is included in the SCBWI Book Blast campaign. You can watch a brief video there of me discussing the book . While you're there, I hope you'll sign the guest book and click the "like" button for a fun surprise. (Caution: don't have your volume too loud!) Also, check out the

for fun Book Blast-related giveaways, including a chance to win copies of your favorite books.

I forgot to mention in my last post that I gave a presentation on "Coping with Your Inner Critic at the Catholic Writer's Guild live conference in July. I'll be repeating the presentation for the online conference in February, 2017. For more information, see the conference website.
