Sometimes another writer says something so well there is no need to say it again. Today, Australian author and blogger Sandy Fussell posted an excellent post about the verse novel form at her blog, Stories are Light. Read it.

New Verse Novel

As you know, this blog is all about verse novels, but today I am inviting you not just to celebrate the release of a new verse novel - but to celebrate the release of MY new verse novel.

As you may or may not be aware, today is a special day for me as it marks the release of my much cherished, much awaited children’s verse novel, Pearl Verses the World.

To celebrate, I am having a month long virtual party, starting today on my blog -

From there I am heading off on a blog tour, visiting ten blogs in ten days. I am also having several chidlren’s poet visit my blog as guets bloggers and also hosting a special poetry writing challenge on my blog and my friend Kathyrn Apel’s blog, too.

I’d love it if you would consider dropping by my blog today and read all about Pearl and about my celebrations. While you’re there, feel free to leave me a comment so I know you came by.

Have a wonderful May. I know I will!
