Foreword Reviews published their review of The Girl Who Ignored Ghosts in the fall edition of Foreword Reviews and on their website. They gave it 5 hearts!
Q&A and Giveaway
One of the NetGalley reviewers of TGWIG reached out to me to give away a signed copy of TGWIG and do a Q&A. Rin has a great blog for books and I was excited to be featured there:

I finished the first draft of TGWIG’s sequel in late August.
I’ve received beta reader comments on Six Train’s sequel. I’ve read through them all and am mulling them over right now and preparing to start revisions this week.
I’ve been hard at work creating all the paperwork for school visits, including my website content, and finalizing the PowerPoints.
I’ve has postcards designed and ordered them to send to schools this fall.
I’ve compiled a mailing list of schools in CT. Now I’m working on MA. I’m aiming to put them together for NY and RI too.
TGWIG has 49 reviews on Amazon and 63 ratings on Goodreads. I’m thrilled to have such a great response within 5 weeks of publication. I’m hoping to break 50 reviews on Amazon soon. I’d love to get 100 reviews for TGWIG by the end of the year. When I break 100, I’ll share the opening page of my draft of TGWIG’s sequel here. And I’ll run a giveaway with a $25 Amazon gift card.
Happy Labor Day!
