Ten writers for children. All with something to say.
Another advantage of technology
Like Edie, I use Google Alerts to give me the "heads up" if someone on the Internet posts a comment about me or one of my books. It can alert me to an award nomination that even my editor doesn't know about, or it can bring me to a review that unequivocally states "this is the most boring book ever written."
Just recently a message from Google Alerts sent me a link to an article which included the White House in its caption. Was one of my books being questioned as unAmerican? Not at all! When I followed the link, I discovered my picture book The Best Pet of All had been read on the White House lawn at Easter by actress Reese Witherspoon! Okay, I had to have a friend explain to me exactly who Reese Witherspoon was, but I thought it was still way cool!
To hear Reese (I'm on a first name basis with her now) reading my book, you can check out this YouTube video.
Thank you, technology, for bringing me this news that would have otherwise slipped under my radar.
