Score one for literacy
Quick message before I relay a fantastic story to you! For all you who missed me on the tour, here's your chance to grab a signed copy of Salted. I'm now able to sell signed/personalized print copies of Salted through my website! Heyo! ;)
You can find my store in the upper right hand corner of my toolbar or by clicking this link. Shipping costs have already been factored in so the $15.99 price is similar to what's on Amazon, (unless you have free shipping via Amazon Prime), but this book arrives signed by me! Spread the word folks. ;)
Okay, so onto this sweet, sweet story!
I received a message not long ago. The kind I imagine every author dreams of receiving.
It came from a teacher.
Said teacher had read my book and enjoyed it, especially for the diversity incorporated via characters like Lenny, Garrett, Paulo, Ellie, and Chidi (pronounced Chee-dee).
Naturally, I was stoked just to hear this bit of news.
Then, the teacher mentioned taking the book to school for students to learn about...
After telling the class a bit about Salted, all fought for the chance to read it first. The teacher couldn't pick favorites, so a system was instituted where students alternated reading when finished with their work for the day and used their own bookmarks to not lose their place.
This picture came attached with the message.
How about that pink elephant, huh? Pure awesomeness.
This teacher had even more good news for me!
A parent mentioned their teen came home from school begging for a copy. Said parent was thrilled! Apparently, their teen had never asked to buy a book before...ever.
That's a win, folks.
