Kindles for Kids and Writing for Young Readers Conference

Danyelle Leafty is donating the royalties from her book Catspell to purchase Kindles for children in a hospital in Utah.  It's such a worthy cause!  If you are a reader you can download her book and the proceeds will help kids in need.  If you are an author, you can contribute a short fairy story for an anthology that Danyelle is loading onto the Kindles she purchases.  Go to Danyelle's blog for more information.

I purchased Catspell and you can too!

The Writing and Illustrating for Young Readers conference will be held June 18-22.  I have not attended the conference but I have heard from many fellow writers how beneficial it has been to them or that they found their agent there.

You can choose to attend morning workshops and afternoon sessions, or both.  There will be workshops and classes, book signings and more. There is also an awesome contest/scholarship. You won't want to miss it!  Go to the Writing and Illustrating for Young Readers blog to find out more.
