Recognize that voice?

Dear friends,

I’m excited, proud, and slightly embarrassed to present my voice on the air! This is the answer to those days when you say to yourself,

You know what I’ve been missing? A little of Rebeca’s voice in my ear. Now that would really perk up my day. I’m gonna have to give her a call. But that’s going to take too long! And what if I don’t get her, she’s busy all the time. I’ll have to wait til she calls back, or til the next time I see her. Sigh. No shot of Becca with my coffee today. Sad.

Well, wait no longer, my friends. Now you can hear my voice from the comfort of your home, office, or car (as long as you have an iphone) – just go to this link:

http://www.publicbroadcasting.net/wamc/news.newsmain/article/6577/0/1587050/Book.Picks/Book.Picks.-.Odyssey.Bookshop

or if that doesn’t work, try going to WAMC.org, click on “News & Information”, click on “Roundtable”, scroll down til you see on the right-hand side “Roundtable Weekly Book Picks”, then click “Audio”, then find “Book Picks – Odyssey Bookshop” for December 09, 2009 (2009-12-09), and presto! Click play, and there you’ll hear the dulcet tones of my voice.

In case you’re wondering what this is all about, well, let’s just say the world was finally ready to know me, and they’ve given me my very own talk show!

That’s a joke/lie.

The Odyssey Bookshop gets invited every few weeks to talk about books on the air during the WAMC Roundtable discussion and this week I was, by default, invited along to speak about children’s books.

Thanks to everyone for their continued support as I blaze new trails for myself with my children’s book career. I’ve heard my small 20-minute segment may be up for a 2010 Radio Award – there was some talk of “never having heard such an erudite, articulate, melodious female voice on the air since Rachel Maddow”. (This could just be a rumor. Or another joke/lie I made up.)

Easy listening!

It came! It came! So excited to have received my gorgeous new @rebelgirlsbook book 2 in the mail yesterday! That's 2/2 GOODNIGHT STORIES FOR REBEL GIRLS books that I helped fund via @kickstarter, and I would help fund a dozen more at least. Also thrilled @quailridgebooks already has our shipment on order so I can handsell these through the holidays. #indiesfirst!

#readstagram #readwithme #readmore #reading #read #instaread #instabook #indiesfirst #shoplocal #bookstore #bookshop #bookshelves #book #books #bookrec #bookworm #bookish #booklove #booklover Today I sat down and read @theallycarter's newest book, NOT IF I SAVE YOU FIRST, coming out March 27, 2018, and I finished it in one sitting. That's how quickly I flipped those pages! I'm a huge fan of her HEIST SOCIETY series, and this one lives up to what I've come to expect from aa Ally Carter YA-thriller-romance. Read on for my review. Thanks to @quailridgebooks for my advanced copy! #booksellerlife . . .
Review: Ally Carter has done it again! I don't know how she manages to so perfectly balance a kick-ass teenage girl with just a pinch of over-the-top girliness, but she nails it every time. Basically this can be considered a contemporary retelling of The Paper Bag Princess, where the prince is the US President's son, the princess is the son's former best friend/daughter of the President's former body guard, and the dragon is a Russian operative. Oh and the setting is winter in Alaska. And because it's Ally Carter, while the girl clearly saves the day and rescues the boy, she also ends up with the boy because teenage love conquers all.

New review & a staff pick for @quailridgebooks: Guaranteed giggles! Clever illustrations, Captain PB (polar bear, not peanut butter), a literary fox, and three very silly lemmings. Perfect for all storytimes, with opportunities to do character voices. It also imparts the importance of learning how to read without being didactic. My favorite picture book of the year!
