Thank you so much to everyone who participated and supported our authors and each other in the 7 Days of Books celebration. It was so much fun to read your comments on the blog and out in social media. I wish I could send everyone who stopped by a copy of all the books!
Fortunately, there is a back-up for all of us! Your local libraries can a be huge resource for new books for young readers. They especially like to purchase books that their patrons are interested in, so if you have a chance, visit your library and let them know which titles you'd like to see on the shelves, if they aren't sitting there already.
And without further ado, here are our WINNERS! Winners will be notified by email with more info.
