But first . . .

Lots of exciting book news.

Scott Eyman of the Palm Beach Post did a feature about my book in their “Accent” section this past Monday. Thanks, Scott!

Nancy Gilson of The Columbus Dispatch wrote a really nice review. Thanks, Nancy!

And what a delight to see that my book was chosen as a “Staff Pick” at Havertown, PA’s Children's Book World. Here's what they wrote: "Fabulous middle-grade novel about an awkward spelling-bee champ whose governor mother is running for the Democratic nomination. Timely, funny and written in a great voice."

Now . . . onto the winners of the big button give-away.

“You get a button.” “You get a button.” “You all get buttons.”

Everyone who posted a comment on the “Big Button Blog-O-Rama” will have a "Vote for Mom" promotional button mailed to them. I'm feeling sort of Oprahish today.

Have a grand weekend!

Thanks, Mary,

Yes, it's nearly as much fun as raising teenage boys. :)
