JLG Premier Selection!

I recently got this letter in the mail stating that my upcoming book BUFFALO MUSIC ( written by Tracey Fern) will be a Spring '08 Junior Library Guild Premier Selection! I had to do a bit of research to find out just what this meant. It seems the Junior Library Guild chooses around 300 titles out of the 3,000 or so they review each year, and of those 300 there are a handful of 'premier selections'... And they then print their own separate edition of the book too -- not a bad deal at all! There haven't been any reviews for the book yet, but I am hoping that this is a sign of good things to come. BUFFALO MUSIC will hit shelves on May 19th!

I just received a surprise in the mail from Clarion -- a stack of marketing posters for BUFFALO MUSIC! Awesome.
