As the author of 34 books, including a dozen children's titles, I know how
challenging it can be to promote books and find your audience.
And as the Founder of I Love To Write Day, a grassroots campaign I launched
in 2002 to have people of all ages practice writing every Nov. 15, I am
always looking for ways to let our supporters (over 4.2 million of them!)
know about new books that are "family friendly."
So, in honor of the 10th Anniversary of I Love To Write Day, I will be
publishing the "Family Friendly Book Directory" and sending it to the 28,000
schools all across the U.S. that celebrate ILTWD every Nov. 15. I will ask
the school librarian to share the directory with the students, teachers,
administrators and parents. I will also send the directory to our ILTWD
e-newsletter subscribers, and it will be posted on the
www.ilovetowriteday.org site. You can submit your book info directly to John Riddle at johnriddle (at) sprintmail.com.
If you have a "family friendly" book, it can be listed f r ~ ~! A fr ~ ~
listing includes: Name of book, author, price and Web address.
For an additional fee, you can also post your book cover graphic and include
up to 5 lines of copy.
Save 50% on paid listings until July 15. Contact email@example.com
for more info.
