2014 ~ October 24th
The Prescott Valley Library’s Teen Readers were there at the beginning and they returned to see the finished product.
Last December, I met with librarian Jolanta Feliciano and the teen readers. They had reviewed the first five chapters of BIG WAR, Little Wars along with other sections of my book. I was seeking feedback from teenagers to learn their interest in fiction about World War II. Our discussion triggered my decision to step into the unknown world of publishing.
The same teens gathered on October 24th for my Show and Tell presentation of the Story-Behind-the-Story. After donating a copy of the book to the library, their animated voices were heard discussing who would read the book first—music to an author’s ears.
I cannot thank the Prescott Valley librarians and the enthusiastic young readers enough for their amazing support.
