I’m thrilled to be supporting the latest fundraising effort for Deaf Camps, Inc., a nonprofit I have volunteered with for the last 15 years.
To support its 2017 Scholarship Fund, Deaf Camps, Inc. is holding its first-ever Online Auction from March 1 to March 31. Check out the many handmade items, travel packages, gift certificates, and event tickets – but especially these items of interest to the bookish:
A Middle Grade or Young Adult Manuscript Critique (up to 400 pages) from my AMAZING agent, Steven Malk of Writers House
The value of this item is listed as $8000, but honestly, it’s priceless. There is simply no one like Steve for unlocking the potential of a manuscript and giving you the feedback you need to get it to the next level – and the knowledge of the market to know where to pitch it. JUMP ON this opportunity, MG and YA authors!
See above. Did I mention how amazing he is? Shall I also mention that he represents picture book luminaries like Bob Shea, Matt de la Pena, Jon Klassen, and Mac Barnett? You WANT this, picture book authors.
Get your own super-special copy of my debut fantasy novel, SWORD AND VERSE, autographed and supplemented with maps, story secrets, and all the symbols of the language of the gods your little heart could desire!
My Stories By Hand programs bring basic American Sign Language to libraries, schools, camps, childcare centers, and homeschool groups through stories, songs, and fun activities. Find out more about the range of programs available at www.storiesbyhand.com.
