First, a big Hello to our new followers–we love making new friends—and a big Thank You to all of you who have been Tweeting, posting, commenting, and helping us create a buzz about the need to improve our children’s educational experience. The conversation is beginning to roll now; we’ve seen Lifting the Curtain climb the charts, in fact, it jumped from #46 to #5 on Listopia/Goodreads Books Every Teacher Should Read! We have not yet heard back from any of the legislators to whom we sent copies but we’ll keep you posted.
On Monday WOW! Women on Writing will be sharing their review of Lifting the Curtain along with a giveaway. WOW! is an international, award-winning eZine read by (mostly) women writers, publishers, agents, teachers, and yes…moms. We’ll be at their blog, The Muffin. We’re looking forward to that!
On Wednesday we’re back at WOW! for an interview. We’re going to discuss what the school experience is like for kids these days—you know, it’s changed a lot in the past 5-10 years! We’ll look at some of those changes and how they are affecting the children.
Then, on the 22nd we go to Words from the Heart for a Q&A session with Rev. Linda Neas. (She has a really good post today about how we push so much for college education that there is no pride for those people in service positions.)
Don’t forget to enter to win your own copy of Lifting the Curtain via our Rafflecopter contest here or on our FaceBook page (on FaceBook, just click on the gift package in the left margin). Time is running out so enter today! And while you’re at it, we’d love to send you one of our buttons; you can enter to win one of those here.
Lastly, let us know if you or anyone you know would like to host the book on their website, blog, talk radio station, etc… Just leave us a comment, shoot us an email (address is in the right margin), or sign up here.
