A couple months ago, my teaching colleague Marjorie Light and I got talking. Our creative writing class had just Skyped with author Lindsey Leavitt in a win-win situation. Our kids got to meet and ask writing questions of an author, and Lindsey got a chance to plug her upcoming YA novel to some enthusiastic readers. Wouldn’t it be great, we thought, if there were an easy way for authors promoting a new book to connect with teachers & librarians who would love to have more virtual author visits in their schools?
So we’ve launched a new blog called
Lindsey Leavitt agreed to be our first
victim guinea pig author volunteer, and I have a spring Skype tour listed for SUGAR AND ICE, too. There are detailed directions on the blog for how to list a tour and how to book one. And of course, it’s a LiveJournal site, so feel free to add
We’re excited about this and curious to see how it works out. Comments & suggestions are most welcome!
