My New Widget

You may or may not have noticed that I've added a new widget to my blog. It's on the side there. You have to scroll down a little. Do you see it? It's yellow and says Authors Now on the top. And it is so cool! I love it because every time my blog is opened up, it displays a new book by an Authors Now author. And I love seeing what new books are out there!

If you don't know, Authors Now is the internet's largest collaboration of debut children's and teen book authors and illustrators. Loads of excellent books are coming out Authors Now members. The Authors Now website is a great resource for anyone interested in books. There's so much going on there I'm not even going to start to tell you. You'll just have to explore Authors Now yourself.

If you want to get this cool widget too, you can find it at You can customize it and make it any colors you want. Plus you can choose to display only picture books or just young adult and middle grade; whatever you're into.

I'm a member of Authors Now too. You think I'll flip out the day I see my book displayed on my Authors Now widget? No, not me. ;-)


  1. Very cool.

    If I were you, I'd just keep reloading. ;-)

  3. That's pretty neat, Heather. Sounds like a great organization.

  4. Cool! I'm so bad with the widgets, but I am on JacketFlap. I'll have to see if I can figure it out =)

  5. Um, I already did that Tara. :-)

    It is great, Stella. You should join. You do have a book coming out!

    Did you try it Sherri? If I can figure it out, you can. Let me know if I can help.
