On May 18th, I told you about Paula Reed's new novel, Hester, now scheduled for release February 16, 2010.
Paula has a blog now, and she has her first review (Publisher's Weekly) posted there. Her website tells a little more about the novel.
And you may, of course, pre-order from amazon.com at a lovely discount. Barnesandnoble.com as well.
I gave you the scoop about author Teresa Funke on August 10th. Her new World War II themed book for middle graders, V for Victory, is now available.
And don't forget Teresa's book of short stories about women's lives during World War II, Dancing in Combat Boots. This book would make a great gift for any woman in your life, from young teens to elders.
Teresa now performs a one-woman show using her Dancing in Combat Boots stories. I was out of town when she debuted, but am looking forward to her next production in March.
