Dorothy & Toto Author Copies!

There is nothing better than getting a surprise package in the mail. Yesterday, I found a box sitting on my front stoop. When I peeked at the return address and saw it was from Capstone, I squealed! I immediately tore open the box and inside were my author copies of my Dorothy & Toto early reader chapter book series!

HOORAY! I’m so excited to hold these books in my hands. I didn’t realize I would get copies of my library (hardcover) editions so this is a special treat indeed.

Just to educate those of you who are not in the industry, authors get a limited number of copies. They do not get free unlimited copies of their books. However, I plan to do a give-away of one set closer to the actual release date, so stay tuned. The library editions are available starting August 1, and the paperback editions will be released both in the U.S. and the UK on October 1st.

I think Monika Roe’s illustrations are absolutely adorable! I especially love that she drew me.


For details about each book:

You can also preorder the books from your favorite bookstore or online source:

Indie Bound or or Barnes & Noble.

Stay tuned for more when the books release. I plan to share some stories behind the stories!
