Don't Forget to Vote!

On our recent Book Friends Forever podcast, Alvina and I talked about how we want to help to get out the vote.  While we were talking, I realized I had a great resource as I actually illustrated this book:

It's a great book outlining to kids how our government works and why we need to vote! I think some adults might need to read it too...

So I made some resources you might like to use!  In the podcast, I mentioned that I had joined Postcards to Voters--I encourage you to join me and send out postcards, too! Here is a postcard design you can use!


Click and print postcards! These  4 Postcards on 8.5 x11 use the Avery label 8387 template for your convenience OR you can copy/paste this single postcard image and place it in a postcard template of your choice!

I also made some 8.5x11 posters for parents and teachers to hang to help explain the voting process to kids:

Mulan Pre-order and Book Party Details!!!

Are you ready?

 Here are all the details!!!

If you pre-order the book from Porter Square Books,  not only will the book be personally autographed (make sure you put to whom you wish the book to be made to in the comments section when ordering), I will include a beautiful, gold-foil bookmark with this design:

This is just the design! The printed piece will be gold and shiny!

It's bound to give you good luck for the New Year! So pre-order now!


If you come to the Book Party at Porter Square Books on February 9 at 3pm, I have a special party favor for you.

For those who come to the book party*,  I have these gorgeous, hand-cut paper greeting cards (custom-made by the lovely people at Evergreen Cards):

These are also more beautiful in real life!

And, if that wasn't enough, at the party I'll be having an in-conversation with the lovely Susan Tan (author of Cilla Lee-Jenkins: Future Author Extraordinaire!). So you'll get two authors at one event!

Doesn't that make you really want to come? So, pre-order the book!  Save the date!

I hope to see you there!

*Unfortunately, I have a limited supply of these greeting cards, so priority will go to those who pre-order and attend the party. If there are cards left over after the event, I will include them to those who pre-order from out-of-town, but I cannot promise it. But all pre-orders will receive the gold foil bookmark.
