We're in the process of getting our 4th book ready to launch. It's about table manners and should be available in October if all goes as planned. (Fingers crossed!)
So with Tabletop Tipsters (the new book) and work on the next Zephram book (The Tale of Time Warp Tuesday), I've been busy on the writing side of things. Now onto the publishing side of things! A publisher never sleeps, I've found, when it comes to starting and keeping the momentum going!
We've dropped of copies of The Kids' (and Parents', too!) Book of Good Sportsmanship at Play it Again Sports, who are eager to sell it. And we've restocked all of the books at Wayne Readers Forum. We've also sent copies to local radio morning show programs -- and are preparing a couple of advertisements, press releases, articles, blog tours and book packages. (There's always something to do -- a new channel to investigate, a new contact to make, new exposure!)
A very nice surprise recently was this review on Amazon that Midwest Book Review gave to It's Time for Good Manners!
It's always exciting when someone likes our books!
Oh, before I forget, I think today is when we'll restock the local pizza parlors with good sportsmanship book marks -- this works really well when all the kids are stopping by for pizza after their games!
That's it for now at Good Manners Kids Stuff Press! Happy Reading!
P.S. We did some great reading this summer. Just a sample: we read Rick Riordan's The Red Pyramid (The Kane Chronicles, Book 1)
and we really enjoyed it. And my daughter eagerly devoured Suzanne Collins book, Mockingjay (The Final Book of The Hunger Games).
