Happy New Year’s Day everybody!

I took a much needed hiatus the past couple of months to focus on the many spinning plates I was trying to juggle. Between pandemic, work, house, writing, and business, I was concerned I couldn’t focus 100 percent on my blog as my readers deserved! But now I’m back and have so many new things to share with you…

  1. PAY A BOOK FORWARD event! Every month throughout 2021, I will be giving people the opportunity each month to win a bundle of new and gently-loved books to add to their libraries.


I’ll share much more over the next few days and the event will run from the 10th to the 20th of each month. Librarians, educators, homeschool families, or just book lovers in general will have chances to add their name to the monthly drawing to possibly win a bundle of children’s books from board books, picture books, chapter books, middle grade and more! There will even be signed books and other special bonus prizes to be won!

It’s just my way of sharing my love of books and supporting the wonderful writers who make up our KidLit community!

Come back on Wednesday for a peek at this month’s book lineup!
