Sally J. Pla is offering each of two lucky winners a copy of her wonderful “The Someday Birds”. Here’s what Sally has to say:
The Someday Birds is a book about a bird-loving boy on a life-changing journey. And since its publication earlier this year, I feel as if it’s put me on a life-changing journey, too!
I’ve discovered not only the immense joy in connecting with young readers, but also the warm welcome of our wonderful kid lit writing community.
In January 2018, The Someday Birds comes out in paperback. In February, my next book, Stanley Will Probably Be Fine, comes out. This year I’ve moved from a nervous-newbie debut writer into one who is learning things about both craft, and self! I hope to keep writing books with characters that are maybe a little neurodiverse, a little different — because we are all a little different. We’re all on different journeys. And I think the best tool to broaden our paths of understanding is the sharing of our stories.
Anyhow, thank you so much for letting me “celebrate the journey” with this giveaway!
Thanks so much, Sally!
