Well, my first book, Feel Good, Girl! was released two weeks ago and I'm happy to report that it's enjoying an nice debut.
Even prior to its release, Feel Good, Girl! was getting a nice reception among parents, educators and librarians. Now it's paying off. And the best news? The book is currently being considered as a course book for a ground-breaking self-empowerment class that is being implemented at the middle school in my town! Exciting!!!
It's also been mentioned in a couple prominent places here in blogland. Namely on Amy Jussel's Shaping Youth and Anastasia Goodstein's YPulse. Thanks again, ladies!
But nothing prepared me for the latest news from my publisher...Feel Good, Girl has sold out! Who'd a thunk it?
On one hand, this is really great news because it means that people are finding the book to be a real resource for encouraging tween girls to open their minds, expand their horizons, and think beyond the limiting messages presented to them by the media and pop-culture.
On the other hand, it means that we are now waiting for the next run of books to be printed. Mommy B is not a big fan of the waiting.
However, in the meantime we're revamping the Feel Good, Girl!website and doing lots of other little projects to make the next round even better than the first. In a few weeks, well have fresh new books (hot of the presses!) and a fresh new interactive website to go along with it!
As informed Mama's your input is pretty important to me, so as we go along, I'll be looking to you for guidance in making FGG a powerful resource for our girls(and for us as well).
