The Greenhouse Kids - Dig Deep!
October 7th, 2011:
The Greenhouse Kids, Dig Deep
The next mysterious adventure in The Greenhouse Kids series of chapter books for children 8 to 12, The Greenhouse Kids, Dig Deep, has been completed and sent to the publisher. The release date will be around Christmas. This book is chalk-full of mystery upon mystery that will keep readers guessing right up to the very end!
Readers Grow Into Leaders Literacy Program - Update
School is back and so is the Readers Grow into Leaders Literacy Program. Since the program was founded in July 2010, I have raised $10,000 worth of books to be given away to under-funded schools. The program kicks off Monday, October 3rd.
I have had many return sponsors for this school year and I would like to thank all of you who have sponsored the program. If you or someone you know is interested in sponsoring a child/children, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
