Welcome to the 21st Kid Lit Blog Hop. This is my first foray into Blog Hopping, so I am all kinds of excited to be taking my blog to a new level!
The Kid Lit Blog Hop takes place on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month. This Hop is a dynamic and engaged community of children’s books bloggers, authors, publishers, and publicists, as well as parents seeking out their next great read. So, you are more than welcome to link in and take some time to make some new friends.
Be sure to come back here August 26th for the Best of Summer 2013 Kid Lit Giveaway Hop. You will find a great big stack of free children's books for the taking! In fact, why not follow this blog right now, so that you'll get a reminder to come back and scoop up the goodies? under "Networked Blogs" to the right of this post------>
I admit I was totally in awe and more than a little jealous and mystified at how they grew their tribes.
I began seeking these influential folks out. In the middle grade blogosphere, these are often women, often moms, often authors themselves who still have time after all that mothering and writing to read and pass along valuable information to other readers and authors.
How do they do it? Their blogs are friendly and supportive and a welcome place to hang out and get to know others.
I recommend you stop by Cheryl Carpinello's Writing Pages for an excellent post featuring Julie Grasso and her new book, Return to Cardomom.
After writing a great book and having it thoroughly edited, she got to work. Through a combination of book reviews, blog tour stops (interviews on genre specific blogs), giveaways and strategic pricing, Julie has enjoyed great success with her books. Find her on Amazon, Goodreads, and great blogs everywhere.
