For those of you who have seen my recent status updates and such around the web, you know that I have a nonfiction book for girls coming out in the Spring from Prufrock Press. You may also know that I have been deep in "find a title" mode with the book. That and trying to finish up the manuscript.
I am happy to tell you all that a little progress has been made. I now have a title. And a working backcover blurb. And a release date.
And a cover...
But more on that later.
For this weekend, as I desperately try to finish up the manuscript and hit "send", I wanted to share the title and blurb.
So....*cue drum roll*
May I present my latest nonfiction project:
Title: The Girl Guide: Finding Your Place in a Mixed-Up World
Release Date: April 1, 2013
Finding your unique voice in a noisy world can be hard. Very hard. But not if you have a great guide! "The Girl Guide: Finding Your Place in a Mixed-Up World" is a must read for girls in grades 6-9 as they enter the tumultuous world of adolescence. Packed with fun worksheets and quizzes, as well as stories from older girls and women, "The Girl Guide" covers everything a teenage girl needs to know on the journey toward her own identity. Proven strategies for dealing with stress management, confronting relational aggression, being safe online, navigating the changing mother-daughter relationship, and more make this the ultimate guide for any girl to get through the teen years and discover her unique point of view in the world.Now...the cover news...
After taking a lot of notes from parents and girls, we have a cover. Sadly, it'll be a few days until I can share it. But...trust me, when I can it'll be giveaway time yet again.
Speaking of giveaways - I am giving away the annotated galleys from my first two nonfiction books, Emotional Intensity in Gifted Students and 101 Success Secrets for Gifted Kids, over on my other blog. Check it out and enter the giveaway while you can. It closes on 9/11/2012.
And, in other bookish news...
I have tons of things planned for the release of Transcend, all starting on Sept 14. Click over the the Transcend Release page for the complete scoop.
Until Monday...that's it. Hope you have a great weekend. I will be recovering from a nasty cold I just can't seem to get rid of, and finishing up a couple of projects. (I hope).
