We Have Our Winners!

Hey, Gang!  This was an exciting weekend for me.  My in-laws in Pittsburgh threw a lovely little release party for the book.  The night ended with a very late call from my Canadian family — all screaming “WALL STREET JOURNAL!”  So I went online and found this wonderful review of Peter Nimble, which includes phrases like “delightful” and “wholly captivating”! 

Even more exciting, this weekend marked the end of the most recent Peter Nimble giveaway!  Using a random number picker, I selected five winners from the hundreds of entrants.  Each person gets a signed copy of the book and an awesome hand-printed Peter Nimble T-Shirt!  Here they are:

Michael Scotto

Michael is a fellow graduate of the CMU Dramatic Writing program.  He lives in Pittsburgh and writes books for children — his upcoming novel, Latasha and the Little Red Tornado, hits stores this November. (He also wrote a pretty nice Peter Nimble review here!)

 

Rita Meade

Rita Meads runs the wonderful librarian blog Screwy Decimal.  Readers of The Scop will remember when I drew a picture based on her blog post about “The Library of the Future!” Congrats, Rita!

 

 

Nikki D Robertson

Nikki D Roberston runs the blog True Adventures of a High School Librarian.  She is also moderator for Alabama School Library Association twitter chat group.  

 

 

Mary Ann Scheuer

Mary Ann is a K-5 Librarian in Berkley, CA.  She runs the blog Great Books for Kids, where she posts reviews on new picture and chapter books!

Instead of a regular post today, I would kindly direct you all to Ramblings of a Wannabe Scribe, where the lovely Shannon Messenger has interviewed me about writing for younger audiences.  Those burning to know more about my secret past as a professional yo-yo player are advised to check it out.  Shannon’s also giving away a copy of Peter Nimble to her readers, so if you still want a free book, here’s your chance!

Tomorrow marks the official US release of Peter Nimble — at which point I will unveil the (kinda huge) prize for my next giveaway.  See you then!
