Happy ho ho ho and more winners!

Congratulations goes to two authors this month!  (Oops, almost wrote moth but both books have insects in them so I guess that would be alright :)).  We didn't have too many entries this month as unfortunately, our fan page went down for a few days, but no need to fret folks, it is back up and running!

I am so honored to help support these authors and also help promote early children literacy!

Keep reading and Merry Happy HO HO HO to what ever you all celebrate (my family celebrates both Hanukkah and Christmas).

Maybe as a gift, give your kiddos the gift of a picture book!

Congratulations goes to Cathey Graham Nickell and her book "Arthur Zarr's Amazing Art Car"

I decided to start an cover art contest a few months ago on the fan page, and this month this was the clear winner at 15 likes.

I personally love this idea and want to say thank you to everyone that voted!  I'm sure the author and illustrator appreciate all the support!

I hope you can check it out!  Her website is here!

My name is Gia and I wrote a picture book called "Journey to Jazzland" back in 2013, which was published.  I have learned that the author must also be responsible for promoting the book.

I realized that with all the promoting I do for our events (Renaissance Festivals here in MA and I also help run other such pages to help promote other performers and merchants that I decided to also create a Facebook page to help promote other picture book authors and illustrators get the word out about the books.

The Facebook page only started last year sometime and already the support has been fabulous!

I've run a contest now and then for cover art work and the response has been really fabulous! promotingpicturebooks fan page is the fan page
