A Purr-fect new picture book by Pamela Wight – readilearn
Today, I am talking with author Pamela Wight about her new picture book Molly Finds Her Purr. I previously introduced you to Pamela when her first picture book Birds of Paradise was released in 2017. You can read that interview here.
The importance of being true to yourself and the acknowledgment of the strength of friendship, even when differences exist, are strong themes in Pamela’s books.

A Wedding in December by Sarah Morgan.
This funny, charming and heartwarming new Christmas novel is USA TODAY bestselling author Sarah Morgan at her festive best!
In the snowy perfection of Aspen, the White family gathers for youngest daughter Rosie’s whirlwind Christmas wedding. First to arrive are the bride’s parents, Maggie and Nick. Their daughter’s marriage is a milestone they are determined to celebrate wholeheartedly, but they are hiding a huge secret of their own: they are on the brink of divorce. After living apart for the last six months, the last thing they need is to be trapped together in an irresistibly romantic winter wonderland.

Michelle also offers Copy-editing and proofreading services
For over thirty years I have proofread and edited hundreds of books, newsletters, and other documents for numerous authors and organizations. I have decided to use this wealth of experience to offer copy-editing and proofreading for authors and writers. Copy-editing and proofreading are key components of successful publishing.
The final post today is from D.Wallace Peach whose book Sunwielder was released in audio this week. Diana has interviewed the narrator of the book TJ Clark, and for anyone thinking of releasing their books in audio, this will be very useful.
I did it again. I jumped in feet first and then asked questions later. Thank goodness I had an audiobook narrator who held my virtual hand.
Rather than share my newbie inexperience, I thought you might be interested in hearing from a pro.
Meet TJ! His voice brought my book Sunwielder to life, and this week the audiobook went live!
1. Tell us a little about you, your professional background, and why you decided to begin narrating audiobooks.
I’m a trained actor with a BFA in theater from Syracuse University. My family was always big on audiobooks (back when they were “books on tape”) during long road trips. I have a pretty vivid memory of listening to James and the Giant Peach on a trip from Connecticut to South Carolina. Somewhere along that road there is a giant water tower in the shape of a peach and it made the whole thing really magical to me. I realized I wanted to do them myself when I was a teenager and my sister was reading Lamb by Christopher Moore during a cruise vacation. She got seasick and couldn’t keep reading so I picked it up and read aloud to her on the beach while she tried to keep from throwing up. After a while, mom came over and told me I need to keep my voice down. I looked around and a little gathering had amassed. Everyone said “no, no, keep going. This is great!”
