We're edging ever closer to the new year, so I thought I would let you know what I am looking forward to in 2009.
I have some interesting books to review in the first half of 2009:
Messiah Interviews by Jerry Pollock
My Father, My Don by Tony Napoli
The Clare series by Yvonne Prinz
The Devil's Darning Needle by Ben Furman
In addition, authors Tristi Pinkston, Kathi Macias, and Beverly Stowe McClure have books coming out in 2009 that I will most likely review.
On a more personal note, I submitted my first children's picture book manuscript to a publisher this month. I'm excited and nervous. With this first submission, I will be looking forward to focusing on more of my own writing in 2009. But fear not, there are still wonderful things planned for The Book Connection.
If you would be interested in becoming a reviewer for The Book Connection, please drop me a line. You can find my email address in my profile. I'll also continue to host authors through Pump Up Your Book Promotion and other virtual book tours companies, and my time management and organization articles will continue to appear at the Writer2Writer website.
Wishing everyone a happy, heathly, and prosperous New Year!
