Crystal Kite finalist – and giveaway!

Crystal-Kite-logo1-1024x393I got some great news this past weekend: All Four Stars is a finalist for an SCBWI Crystal Kite Award! This award is granted by fellow writers and illustrators in each of the 15 regions of SCBWI (the Society for Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators). We had amazing group of nominees in the southwest region, and I couldn’t be more honored that All Four Stars has made the final four.

These could be yours!! :)

These could be yours!! 🙂

To celebrate, I am giving away a brand-spanking-new, SIGNED paperback of All Four Stars (which comes with two bonus recipes and a teaser chapter from The Stars of Summer!) AND my very last advance reader copy of The Stars of Summerjust in case you can’t wait until May 5 to dive into Gladys’s continuing adventures.

To enter, simply leave a comment on this blog post. I’ll randomly select a winner this Wednesday, 4/22, at 9 am Mountain Time so that hopefully I can get the books in the mail to the winner by the end of the week. This giveaway is open to US and Canadian mailing addresses.

    Congratulations! I am a huge fan of your work. I love ALL FOUR STARS, and I cannot wait to read more about Gladys in the upcoming novel. She is absolutely delightful. I’ve been recommending the novel to children I meet at the toy store where I work. I also told our local children’s librarian that she had to order both of your books. I was SO enthusiastic that she did!

    Over the moon for you, Tara! Congratulations. You know I adore Gladys and it looks like the rest of your region does, too. 🙂

    No need to enter my name . . . though I do hope we meet one day and you could sign a copy then. 🙂 Will you be at Big Sur in the Rockies by chance?

      Alas, Kristin, I’ll be on the east coast for most of May doing book promotion stuff. So sorry to miss you! I’m sure it’ll be an awesome retreat!

    Congratulations! And I would love to share your books with my students. 🙂
