It was SO cool to see this photo YA author Jay Asher (Thirteen Reasons Why, The Future of Us) took of SCARS when he was at a school for a talk. He said the many copies of SCARS were “being processed for use at a school I spoke at in Ogden, Utah.”
It made me feel SO good! (beaming) First, because this Utah library bought so many copies of SCARS. That means so many more teens who need it will be able to find it. I LOVE that! Thank you, thank you, you wonderful librarian or teacher! And second, because an author whose books I’ve read and loved, who is also putting good out into the world, took the time to take a photo of my books and sent it to me. And he so didn’t have to. I LOVE that!
I’ve found the children’s and YA writing and book community to be incredibly supportive, and this is another example. It’s something I’m so grateful for!
And seeing my book out there, reaching people, getting reader letters that let me know how much SCARS helped them, moved them, is another feel-good thing I am so grateful for. I think it’s important to notice these things. What’s something you’re grateful for in your book or writing journey?
Have one of my books? Or see it out in the world? Take a photo and send it to me, and I’ll feature it here on my blog, credit you, and link back to you. I love photos with you and my book, or your pet and my book, or my books out in the world. Email them to me at Cheryl @ CherylRainfield (dot) com.
