Welcome to the World, MARI’S HOPE!
No, but I AM experiencing a wild buzz from the reality of completing a trilogy- one that began with my hopes of writing a simple picture book based on stories that I heard while in Norway, decades ago. I could never have imagined arriving at today’s book release of MARI’S HOPE. If my journey from then to now is new to you, read back through previous blogs for the full scoop.
Meanwhile, I’m more than ready to celebrate. I’ll begin by thanking my friend, Rochelle Melander, for inviting me to respond to her interview questions on this special launch day. Rochelle is an award-winning blogger, a published author, and a generous coach and supporter of other writers. It’s an honor to participate in her blog, and I hope you’ll take a peek at her post. (Here)
Next, I’m offering a giveaway to celebrate the publication of MARI’S HOPE and the conclusion of the trilogy. All you need to do to enter is to post a comment below. At midnight Thursday I’ll randomly select one name from among all those who comment between now and then. The winner will be contacted directly to receive a copy of Mari’s Hope (and a handful of related goodies!)
I’m so grateful for the support of Rochelle and other kidlit bloggers. In coming days and weeks there will be more posts for my virtual “book tour”. I hope you’ll follow along. When you stop by these blog sites I encourage you to subscribe to their blogs, too. Here’s the schedule of posts, so far, with more to come:
