Two in the hand

A bumper crop of books arrived this week... plus a boxful of bookmarks to help promote them.

THE BALLAD OF KNUCKLES McGRAW is a Young Reader for children ages six to nine, published by Orca Book Publishers.

I'm busy practising my lassoing in time for the cowboy-themed launch on Saturday, April 10. (Doesn't matter how many times I write it, that word 'lassoing' just looks wrong.)

A STAR IN THE WATER is the special limited edition sequel to MEETING MISS 405. 25 copies will be available exclusively as door and contest prize for readings, events, and for my website contest.

I'll be publishing STAR in e-book format later this spring, with all proceeds from the $5 download price going to the organization Libraries Without Borders, which brings libraries to small communities overseas.

(A percentage of author royalties from MEETING MISS 405 benefit Surrey Public Library's Legacy Fund, and royalties from KNUCKLES go to Alexandra Neighbourhood House.)

More information about the launch, the FREE storytelling workshop that follows, and the contest is posted at my website http://www.loispeterson.net/.
