2013-11-13 08.24.40The bookmarks have arrived…and we are giving away 100 of them to all of you!

If you are an avid reader, you know all too well the value of a good bookmark. If you would like to add one to your collection, would like one to go with your copy of the new book, or just think it’s cool to get something free keep reading…

Our green-friendly*, 2″x6″ bookmarks feature Sally Ann Lyle‘s beautiful cover art on the front, while the back is an ode to the original five books in the series. Designing it was fun and I plan to create a new one for each of Barbara’s new books. We will be rereleasing the original books with new covers – Sally has consented to doing the cover art for all five books!
