Welcome to my book launch party to celebrate the release of my newest book, Frederick Douglass for Kids!
Since July 23, 2009, this book has been a major part of my life. From the idea stage, to the 2-week photo-research tour, to the weeks and months researching and writing the text, to the submission and revisions stage, and now to the release of the book into bookstores and museum stores all across the nation, this has definitely been a journey of a lifetime!
I invite you to come along and help celebrate the birth of this book about this amazing man. Frederick Douglass has been referred to as a giant, a true American hero, a brilliant spokesman, and one of the greatest leaders of all time.
Join in the celebration I’ll be hosting here on my blog for the next two weeks as I share stories behind the story, tips for writers, suggestions for teachers and homeschooling families, and much, much more!
Join in the fun! There will be prizes to win. We’ll be visiting exciting blogs of other authors and friends.
Join in the journey to help launch Frederick Douglass for Kids to the hearts and minds of children, parents, educators…and the world!
The first stop on my Book Launch Party is at the newsy and informative site for writers, Cheryl Reif Writes. Visit her site to learn more about my new book and the publisher who brought it to life!
Did I mention there would be prizes to celebrate my book launch party?! Yes!!! And the first prize is this: A free critique and evaluation of a 1-page query or cover letter for your book. Just post a comment here on my blog today and answer this question:
If you already heard about Frederick Douglass, what makes him a hero in your eyes? And if you have never yet heard of him, name one thing would you like to learn about this true American hero.
I’ll put everyone’s name in a hat who posts a comment here today. Come back tomorrow for another chance to win this prize, too. And on Wednesday, June 6, I’ll announce the name of the winner here on my blog.
