My brother, for those of you not aware, actually started teaching just before I did and is still a teacher in Illinois. I opened my email yesterday to discover that one of his sixth-grade students had done a video book report on Skylights and had asked my brother to share it with me. I wish to hell I could post it here, but not only is her name on it, but she includes the name and picture of another student when she talks about who she might recommend the book to. So, sadly, I can’t share it. But it’s really cool! And thank you to the student I can’t name who did it!
What I can share is the five-star review that blogbuddy and frequent commenter here Hilary Custance Green wrote for The Sanctum of the Sphere. Thank you to Hilary as well. Sanctum has historically been my redheaded stepchild as far as reviews go; the reviews it’s gotten have all been positive– all five on Amazon are five-star reviews, and it has the highest average of any of my books on Goodreads as well– but for whatever reason it has had a lot of trouble attracting the (still not terribly impressive) quantity of reviews my other books have gotten.
So, naturally, I think everyone should buy it and review it. Right now.
