Call Me Amy Worldwide

First, I’m thrilled to introduce the new book trailer for Call Me Amy:

And then this fantastic review and recommendation from the October issue of Library Media Connection. Here’s part of it: “Every once in a while, a book comes along that you just can’t put down. This book draws you in so deeply, you just have to keep reading. Set in the 1970s, it is a heartwarming story of friendship and coming of age. The story is well-developed and has enough twists and turns to keep even a reluctant reader interested.” —Pamela K. Simmons, Librarian, Penn Yan, NY

Also, I was excited when a Singapore library system link was pointed out to me. Looks like at least 25 libraries now have a copy of Call Me Amy and a dozen of them are already checked out. So fun to picture my book being in the hands of readers over 9000 miles away from where I live. Happy reading!

  2. Congratulations on the fabulous review, Marcia. I hope my library branch in Singapore carries your book so one of my students can check it out. I think this sounds like her type of story!

    Great trailer, Marcia.
    Although they say we should never comment on reviews to our own books, I admit it’s hard not to jump up and down for the great ones, and your book just got a *spectacular* review. Go ahead and jump!


  8. Hi Mirka, you’re right. I don’t comment on reader reviews (like Goodreads), but if there’s a great one in a publication, that followers may not see otherwise, I can’t control myself. 🙂 Thanks for your comments!


  9. Great trailer and congrats for the reviews:)
