The landscape of publishing has changed dramatically in recent years. The traditional path to getting their words to readers is no longer the only option available to writers today. As such, independently published authors have become a ubiquitous part of that landscape. You can connect with writers, traditional and independent, here by Subscribing to my Newsletter. And don’t forget to support your local Independent Bookseller by purchasing through them. If anything, it’ll give you a chance to get out of the house. Thanks for reading!

This Month’s Author Spotlight:  

Sandra Boynton

If our son hadn’t come into our lives a few years ago, my wife and I never would have discovered such great tomes as The Going to Bed Book; Blue Hat, Green Hat; But Not the Hippopotamus; and my personal favorite, Happy Hippo, Angry Duck. Her work spans more than fifty books as of this writing.

Ms. Boynton began writing and drawing greeting cards. Who could ever forget the birthday greeting:”Hippo Birdie Two Ewes.” It’s sold over ten million copies. Along with children’s books, she writes and directs plays, composes music and produces albums.

Move over Eastman, Seuss, and Silverstein, there’s a new dog in town. (Not to say Boynton is a dog. But she does draw a lot of them in her books. And cows, and chickens, and well, a whole zoo of critters.) If you have children and have yet to introduce them to Barnyard Dance!, what are you waiting for? If your an adult sans rug-rats, give yourself a treat and stop by your local library or browse the children’s section of your favorite bookstore. Everyone needs a little brilliant silliness once-in-a-while.
