ALL LOST THINGS, by Josh AterovisCHANGE OF WORLDS, by Josh Aterovis
LOOK what Barbara Grengs sent me!
That was from her reading last Saturday!
"I had a great reading last Saturday; I sold 32 books and had almost 50 people there. So I need to order a few more of the early Tobys."
There are six books in the Toby series and this is the last one, but SHHHHhhhh. Barbara is secretly working on a new book about grown-up characters.
Readings at the library are always a great way to get publicity. They did a neat article in her local newspaper, too, with a picture and the cover of the book in color. I would have copied that, too, but it somehow disappeared from Facebook.
I confess, I'm not really good with FB. AND I missed her birthday, too. So sorry for the belated birthday wishes, Barbara. But we sure hope you had a Happy one. Say "Hi, to your dogs from JACK.
HEY, AUTHORS! Please let me know what everyone is doing... so I'll have some news for my column next week.
Just send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with
"News for Jack"in the subject line, andI'll make sure it shows up right here
for all the world to see!
