It was so much fun to celebrate the release of ONCE UPON A CRUISE last week, both in person and online! I really enjoyed the nautical fairy tale titles people submitted on Twitter, and it was tough to pick a winner. I finally selected Audrey Day-Williams who actually came up with several gems:
Peter and the Wharf
Puss in Boats
Snow White and the Seven Wharfs
Aren’t those great? Congrats, Audrey! You’ve won a signed copy of the book! There were lots of other entries that made me giggle. Here are a few of my favorites:
The Fog Prince – Julie Reich
The Little Mast Girl – Josh Funk
The Ginger Bread Manatee – Tom Franklin
Thanks so much to everyone for taking part in the contest! It made release day even more special. I have some other fun CRUISE-related things in the works, so stay tuned!
In the meantime, I’m so honored to announce that I’m the current author of the month at the Northborough Free Library in Northborough, Mass. I’ll be at the library on Wednesday, Oct 12 at 6pm talking about my novels, and then I’ll also be doing a robot storytime the next day, Oct 13, at 10:30am. If you’re in the area, I’d love to see you!
I’m also excited to share that I’ll be on a Middle Grade Author panel with Megan Frazer Blakemore and Ali Benjamin on Saturday, Oct 22nd at Blue Bunny Books in Dedam, Mass, one of my favorite local bookstores! It should be a fun event!
