January was a great month for me! First of all, my co-author Amie and I got a surprise: DANCING IN THE STORM was named a Junior Library Guild Gold Standard Selection.
I attended the American Library Association Conference in Baltimore. One of my publishers, Reycraft arranged three signings of my book, STORY QUILTS.
I also stopped by the Penguin/Random House booth and had my picture taken with the book I co-authored with Amie Specht, DANCING IN THE STORM:
Amie and I are starting to dive into marketing mode since our book will be released on February 6th. We’re currently making an appearance on Kathy Temean’s blog: https://kathytemean.wordpress.com/2024/01/25/book-giveaway-dancing-in-the-storm-by-amie-darnell-specht-and-shannon-hitchcock/?fbclid=IwAR3nAuB8LCMwXiWs3HqPadJKepFvpQZuixFFCGG_prQ4BikcoVOIrM0UKIQ
I’ll be back next month with more blog interviews and pictures from our book launch, which will be held on February 20th at Champion Hills Club House in Hendersonville, NC.
