I’m getting very excited about my next project, Super Lexi is not a Fan of Christmas! Stay tuned for updates!
Happy National Library Appreciation Week! As a lover of libraries and all things books, I am proud to support this wonderful week. I was happy to see my Facebook community jump at the chance to get free copies of my chapter book Super Lexi for their local libraries. I sent out 15 signed copies to libraries on three different continents this week!
Also, because I simply could not help myself, I took Super Lexi on a Little Free Library book tour. If you are not familiar with the Little Free Library “take a book, leave a book” program, I highly recommend you check it out, because it’s a very cool and neighborly way to promote literacy.
Next up: Teacher Appreciation Week, beginning May 5! As a grateful kids’ author, I intend to give thanks 😉
Super Lexi is a warmly funny chapter book about a determined but nerve-wracked second grader.
Lexi’s got phobias about lots of things. Yogurt. Songs that get stuck in her head. Cashiers who think they’re good with kids. Her biggest phobia on Planet Earth, though, is eyeballs staring at her. That’s how come it’s too bad she has a solo in the school Parents’ Day performance. Good thing she has a plan. If she tornado-twirls at blur speed, she can disappear onstage!
I am so happy to announce that my chapter book, Super Lexi is now available! Click here to buy it now!
I am so grateful to everyone who has supported me along the way. I particularly appreciate those of you that have read my blog or followed me on Facebook/Twitter as Lexi has grown from an idea to a full-fledged character.
A special thanks to Adam Winsor, whose beautiful illustrations capture Lexi and her spirit better than I could have ever hoped for. And thank you to Keith Snyder for presenting Lexi’s story exactly as I had envisioned it!
I feel so lucky to work on Super Lexi with illustrator Adam Winsor. He captures her essence perfectly. Here’s a rough sketch of the poor kid trying to wish her way out of music class.
