Here it is January 17th, 2014 and I am still writing 2013 on my checks - The Holidays have passed, the decorations put away, the thank you notes written and it's time to focus on the new year, new day - new moments.

Many people are beginning to dream of spring.  Little flowers poking their dainty buds up through the semi frozen ground, raindrops swimming down the window pain, the smell of fresh mowed grass, swimsuits and water balloons.  Me?  I am still here, arms wide open, waiting to welcome a little more winter into my heart!  Cozy fires, snowflakes gently gracing the lawn and big cozy blankets.  

In this moment, I dream.

Happy New Year!

Update and Giveaway!

It has been a great year for Campbell Lawson!  

In addition to wonderful sales and response to the books I have been lucky enough to start selling the books on Amazon

So While you are considering your holiday purchases this year don't forget the gift of reading!  Stop by amazon today and pick up a copy of one of these three wonderful books (if I do say so myself)!

In the meantime - 4 lucky readers are going to get a free signed copy of the Campbell Lawson book of their choice!  But you're going to have to work for it!

Help us get the word out that the books are now for sale on Amazon.

Help us put these books in the hands of young readers - inspiring friendship, self esteem and the joys of reading!

To be eligible for the giveaway you simply need to get the word out about Campbell Lawson.  Blog it, tweet it, Facebook it, Pin it, post a review on amazon - whatever suits your fancy - as many times as you like!   

No limit to how many times you can enter!  Simply come back and post the URL to your blog post, tweet, facebook, Pinterest page or the review.

I will draw winners using on Wednesday December 12th and ship immediately to ensure Holiday delivery!

As an added bonus - I was recently inspired at a book signing by a grandmother buying books for her family who lost their home to Hurricane Sandy.  Obviously I didn't sell her the books, I gave them to her and it got me thinking - in all the loss includes books.  Books for kids.  SO - For every Campbell Lawson book sold on Amazon during the month of December I will be donating a matching book to those in need!

Summer Reading and Reading and Reading

We are knee deep in summer and hopefully the pages are flying while we grownups and our kiddos continue to read, even though school is out.

Did you know the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends reading to your children all the way through age 12?  That was a surprise for me!  While, we are a family who loves to read, I haven't read to my oldest in a long time.

Shame on me?  Maybe not.  Every child is different.

We do however share a good picture book from time to time - so why not surprise SOMEBODY special in your family - no matter their age with a new picture book for a lazy summer day?

Pick up a copy of Somebody, send it to a friend, read it to a neighbor...then come back and let me know how you are enjoying your summer reads!

Ringing in the new year

Happy New Year to all of our old friends and new, the end of 2011 was very exciting with the debut of the books and the feedback received as they hit the shelves.  2012 offers the chance to do new things, meet new people and perhaps touch a life in the process.

In mid December I received an email from a 9 year girl that I will likely never forget:

"Hello you might not remember me,but I met you at that flower arty shop.
I thought you're book Somebody was a great thing to write for kids.
It really connects with how mothers ,and fathers , and even kids like me talk
You are very right how people say can somebody do this ,and somebody do that.
Well good luck being an author.
You're book reader 
P.S.If you have time I would love to hear back.

I do remember Dahlia, and I did write her back and I am so touched that she was able to connect with the book and thought enough to let me know!  To Dahlia and all the other young readers out there:

HAPPY NEW YEAR...turn the page and keep reading!
