Nose in a Book Publishing Hosts Online Book Party All May
Join the fun in May as children's author Jennifer Phillips hosts a virtual book party celebrating little-known figures in history featured in her juvenile biographies and two years running her small independent imprint, Nose in a Book Publishing.
By: Jennifer Phillips
Phillips is a Shoreline, Washington writer who has released three children's biographies to date: Elijah Lovejoy's Fight for Freedom, about the abolitionist editor who died while defending his printing press; Robert Wadlow: The Unique Life of the Boy Who Became the World's Tallest Man, about how Wadlow's overactive pituitary gland took him in extraordinary heights as a child; and Nina Kosterina--A Young Communist in Stalinist Russia, about the teenager whose diary became an international bestseller years after her death as a guerrilla soldier fighting the Nazis.
The month-long virtual book party will include:
* Weekly trivia quizzes and prize drawings of movie, book and restaurant gift cards
* Free giveaway drawings for all three books
* Discount coupons for ebook versions of the Lovejoy and Wadlow biographies
"It is very satisfying to hear from readers discovering these biographies who write to share their appreciation for learning about new people from our past," said Phillips. "This virtual book party is about celebrating the release of these stories over the past years while having fun sharing more tidbits about the biography subjects and writing for young readers in a fast-changing digital age."
The party will happen in two connected virtual worlds at http://www.noseinabookpublishing.com and http://www.facebook.com/
