WHAT A YEAR

       Has it been a year?  It has, and it is time to say "thank you."

     Yesterday, I was interviewed on Grand Junction station KAFM by one of my favorite Grand Junction literary giants, Patti Hoff of Brass Frog Book Works.  Patti is an independent book publisher with a high level of professionalism and pizazz. We chatted away about Book Wisdom and the need for high quality literature for children and how that need has shifted.  Thank you Tamarah Hardesty, KAFM program director for creating a space for literacy on Public Affairs and the local airwaves.

       I would like to thank a few people who have been great support in the process of this blog and sharing books with local viewers.  Sandra Dorr and Terri Chappell and Margie Wilson whose support was instrumental in getting started.  My writing and illustration guild, Rocky Mountain Chapter of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, my local writer peeps, my critique group Pens and Brushes, Megan Wallace and KREX, all the authors and illustrators who have generously sent me material, my readers and viewers, and my family, especially my husband Peter.   I am truly blessed!

       In honor of this one year milestone, Book Wisdom by Diane is having a surprise giveaway for my readers and viewers.  Leave a comment below or via email or like the Book Wisdom by Diane page on Facebook to be entered!  The winner will be drawn on April 19th!   Congratulations Kathleen G.!
