Bookish Illuminations!

SWEET blog button2Blog tour stop #4: Book blogger and school librarian extraordinaire Katie has been a huge supporter of the All Four Stars books since day one, and I was even lucky enough to meet her in person last spring at one of my events for The Stars of Summer! 

Now she’s back at Bookish Illuminations with an in-depth review of Stars So Sweet, and a giveaway of the entire series to a lucky commenter! Thank you, Katie. 🙂

 

Stars So Sweet comes out ONE WEEK from today, and if you’re in New York, I hope to see you at my launch party at Books of Wonder. Please check out all of my upcoming events here (with a couple of new additions and updates!).

Middle Grade Mafioso!

SWEET blog button2Blog tour stop #3: The wonderful Michael Gettel-Gilmartin has reviewed Stars So Sweet for Marvelous Middle Grade Monday over at his blog, Middle Grade Mafioso.

He calls someone named Tara Dairman “one of the funniest middle grade writers around.” Well, I’ll take it! 🙂 Thank you for reading and reviewing, my friend.

The STARS SO SWEET blog tour kicks off!

SWEET blog button2After so many years writing about Gladys (I started the first draft of All Four Stars in 2005!), it’s hard to believe that the final volume of her adventures will hit the shelves in less than two weeks.

But Stars So Sweet is coming, and a bunch of terrific book and food bloggers are on hand to help celebrate. The official blog tour kicks off today over at The Daily Dahlia with a guest post that’s very important to me. I hope you’ll check it out.

The series’s publisher, Penguin Books for Young Readers, is also generously providing several sets of ALL THREE Gladys Gatsby books as prizes for blog tour commenters, so definitely check out the tour posts over the next few weeks if you’d like to enter. (Even if you already own the books, they’d make a great gift for a local school or library!) I’ll be linking to tour posts here as well as on Twitter and Facebook.

Read deliciously!
