ALL THROUGH MY TOWN Book Release FUN!

ALL THROUGH MY TOWN is out today in bookstores and libraries throughout my town AND YOURS!

“This adorable trip around town will be a big hit with any toddler who has ever been a passenger alongside a busy grownup with errands to run. With fun-packed illustrations for little ones to look at again and again and a surprise ending that causes instant giggles, this book definitely earns a spot on the ‘favorites’ shelf.”  Kids' Indie Next List

I'm celebrating, and I hope you'll join me. Here's how:

* Tweet or retweet the following message as written below for a chance to win an autographed book, bag and t-shirt!

ALL THROUGH MY TOWN #bookbday. RT anytime on 3/5 for a chance to win a bag, book and t-shirt. http://ow.ly/imyWc #towningaround 

* Learn more about my amazing illustrator Leo Timmers and explore his incredible artwork via his online portfolio. 

* Read the wonderful ALL THROUGH MY TOWN reviews. They made me blush.

* Then stop by  Jennifer Bertman's Creative Spaces blog, where I'll take you on a tour "all through my" work space. You'll also get a peek into my creative process - fancy way of saying my manic mindstorm.

* From now until 3/31/13 enter to win one of  3 autographed copies of ALL THROUGH MY TOWN on Goodreads. Easy peasy!

* Check out my awesome Teacher's Curriculum and Activity Guide linked to learning standards. Whether you're a teacher, librarian, child care provider or a parent, you'll find creative activities for fun and learning that reach beyond the book.

* Are you a picture book writer? Polish up your manuscript and stop back here next Monday March 11th for an ALL THROUGH MY TOWN Picture Book Peek -a chance to win a free critique of your picture book manuscript.

* Mark your calendar for my ALL THROUGH MY TOWN UPCOMING APPEARANCES including my 

Family Fun Night Book Release Party at The Tattered Cover Highlands Ranch on April 26th 
with games, treats and prizes!

* Finally, if you'd like to buy your own copy of ALL THROUGH MY TOWN, you'll find it at your favorite bookstore or these online locations.
And if you e-mail me, I'll send you personalized autographed book stickers for all your purchased copies.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great rest of the week!
