Read Across America Inspiration!

Remember when I posted about those amazing young authors who won the MrsP.com "Be A Famous Writer" contest?  No?  Click here.  Yes?  Read on!

Well, in celebration of Read Across America, MrsP.com is making a video of the winning stories available for free download on iTunes today! Mountain Dog, written by Briana Beebe, 8, from Colorado, and Lucky the Bamboo Chopper, by Bill Wang, 12, of Oregon, are read by Mrs. P (TV star Kathy Kinney).  

As a side note, Mrs. P is visiting Bill Wang today at his school to read his story to a school assembly today!  How fun is that?!  And Briana is being honored at her school as a "featured author" today too.

I'm on my way to go download my copy and I hope you'll do the same.  Supporting new authors is a vital part of the writing community, no matter the author's age!  What a fabulous celebration of Read Across America!

  2. I love supporting new authors. Once upon a time I woudn't have. Too risky. But as a writer I now know better. Besides, one day I'll hopefully be a new author, and hopefully others will buy my book to support me. And better yet, hopefully they'll love it. :)
