A great review by the toughest of critics - a child! This website, Reader View Kids, publishes reviews written by children or (for the little ones) the parent comments on the child's reaction. A nice comment by the parent, "A wonderful story about the true meaning and miracle of Christmas." Read the review: www.readerviewskids.com/ReviewNorrisTonightYouAreMyBaby.html

An interview about Tonight You Are My Baby recently appeared in the latest Sprouts journal. Sprouts is the journal published by the NJ Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators. The talented Shannon Hitchcock wrote the article. Thanks Shannon! Any aspiring writer/illustrator should join SCBWI (http://www.scbwi.org/) and attend as many workshops/first page sessions as possible. The website discussion boards have fabulous information for newbies and published authors both. The workshops are chock full of information and it's worth the price of admission to have a manuscript critiqued by an editor.

Thanks to Sun Rose Books for the great day on Saturday. We had a table of seven authors/illustrators during the one-mile block party. It looked like the middle of July on Asbury Avenue! The sun was hot and the crowd was buying! A terrific day of sales for Tonight You Are My Baby. Thanks Roz and Nancy - Sun Rose owners.

Tonight You Are My Baby is finally out there! October 1st was the official day - and I'm happy to say it's flying off the book shelves at Amazon. Many thanks to my good friends and family who have pre-ordered the book. So many of you were kind enough to call when the books arrived in the mail on Wednesday. Such fun! Amazon had to restock before the day was out and now they are restocking for a second time. Don't I have great people in my life? Lucky, lucky me!
