  1. We would love your participation at our Books & Authors event on Sunday, October 28 from 11-5 here at Leon & Lulu in Clawson, Michigan. You can check it out on our website, or reply with your email address & I can send the information to you.

  2. Hi Tess,
    I was wondering if you would like to join an event I am coordinating. It is called Raising Spirits with Reading. The premise being I find sponsors to buy authors’ books (mine included) and then on November 30th all of the authors get together to sign and read their books to all of the kids at Devos Children’s Hospital in Grand Rapids, MI. Please let me know if you are interested. It would be great to have another YA author join the event. Thank you for your time and consideration.

    Have a wonderful day,
    Amanda Litz
