An Evening of Celebration and Success for Amalie Howard’s Waterfell

Just wanted to toot the horn of my fellow authors and members of the Liza Royce Agency. Congratulations!


Books of Wonder was buzzing with excitement, as YA fans of all ages came out to celebrate the launch of Amalie Howard’s novel, Waterfell, and to meet Amalie’s special guest authors, Kristi Cook (Eternal), Page Morgan (The Beautiful and the Cursed), and Emmy Laybourne (Monument 14: Sky on Fire).

November – Picture Book Month

Writing and Illustrating

What is Picture Book Month? Picture Book Month is an international literacy initiative that celebrates print picture books during the month of November.

Founder, Dianne de Las Casas (author/storyteller) 
Co-Founders, Katie Davis (author/illustrator)
Elizabeth O. Dulemba (author/illustrator)
Tara Lazar (author)
Wendy Martin (author/illustrator), put together their worldwide connections to make this happen.

Every day in November, there is a new post from a picture book champion explaining why he/she thinks picture books are important.

In this digital age where people are predicting the coming death of print books, picture books (the print kind) have so much to offer that they must be celebrated and shared. And the world needs picture books. There’s nothing like the physical page turn of a beautifully crafted picture book.
