Book Winners – Opportunity – Kudos – Industry Changes


Danielle Dufayet won CAN I GIVE YOU A SQUISH? by Emily Neilson

Candice Marley Connors won DUSK EXPLORERS by Lindsay Leslie


Just wanted to give those of you who own Kindles a heads-up. THE DEAL and THE CHASE by Elle Kennedy is free right now on Amazon. I really enjoyed both of these books and ended up reading each of the series. Elle Kennedy is a good writer and hay you can’t go wrong with free.


Amalia Hoffman received the first PJ Library Incentive Award for a submission of both text and art, which comes with the PJ’s desire to see her board book, Hanukkah Nights, move towards publication. – Congratulations! Amalia.
