Self Published Authors Wanted!

Self Published Authors Wanted!

Are  you a self published author? Have you written a great book, novel, short story, novella, or picture book and want to tell the world about it?

Need social media exposure?  Need an alternative to a blog tour? Just want to try something new?  Here’s your answer:

Buy an ad spot on An Unconventional Librarian.

Why?  As a blogger and a book seller I understand the importance of getting the right book into the hands of a reader. Readers can’t buy your book if they don’t know it exists! So the question is, if readers don’t see your book in a bookstore where can they see it?

The answer is: on a blog just like this!  More and more readers trust book bloggers as a source of finding their next great read. They like us and as a result trust our judgement based on shared interests.  It’s kind of like the alliance Katniss and Peeta form with other champions in the Quarter Quell, without the menacing monkeys.  Readers who come to An Unconventional Librarian like middle grade, Young Adult, and children’s books.

Buy an ad spot on An Unconventional Librarian’s site and get easy additional exposure to potential readers. Choose your weapon below to help fight off President Snow and get noticed by future readers and friends.

In the #CatchingFire Race, I’m Team GALE

In the #CatchingFire Race, I’m Team GALE

It’s no secret that I love young adult (YA) books. Right now, I think they’re the best stuff out there.  I’ll choose a YA over adult anytime.  Picture books trump all, however, but that’s another post.

I’m sure many of you are as excited as I am to FINALLY FINALLY watch the much anticipated followup to The Hunger Games!  While many of you were tucked in your jim jams, my super secret movie crew and I braved the crowds and fought our way into opening night showing: on  a school night!

I will not provide any spoilers but I will say this: IT WAS WORTH THE WAIT.  WORTH IT.  Even though I’m on my 65th cup of coffee right now, because I stayed up way past my bedtime, Hollywood delivered.  To be sure, there were some changes from the book (as always) but I felt that Hollywood kept the spirit of the story alive.

Even now more than ever, I am Team Gale.  Regardless of what you think of Peeta (he is a nice boy.  too nice), Gale is THE MAN.  No -matter that is brother is THOR. Gale is a man’s man who protects Katniss’ family even when most men would have been like “what the what?” after seeing his woman kiss another man on the big screen.  Would someone please send GALE into the Hunger Games so we can get it done right?

please

Naturally, I’ve reviewed this series.  Check out my other posts:

As you can see, I’m crazy about the series.  Or just crazy! I’d love to hear what team you’re on or your thoughts on anything Hunger Games!

May the odds be ever in your favor
