Update from Aunt Laya

Hi Everyone! I just thought you might like an update about the things that are going on for me this month.

First, my exciting news is that my book has won an award! It's called an Indie Award and it was for the Young Adult Non-fiction category. I'm pretty pleased. I wrote "You Don't Have to Learn Everything the Hard Way" to make life easier or smoother for readers. Based on the letters I get, the book is doing what I hoped it would. On the other hand, it's nice to be acknowledged by people who are in the book business.

I'll be going to California for the Book Expo America at the end of this month. It's a great event for networking and being involved with the publishing industry. I went last year and met some wonderful people. I came away with loads of books and that was a sweet benefit since I love to read.

If you are in southern California and would like me to come speak to your group, club, class, school, etc., go over to my website and send me a message with contact info and I'll do my best to set it up, schedule permitting. While you're in the neighborhood, feel free to tell me what's on your mind in general. I LOVE to hear from readers.

I'll write from the road when I can.

Love,
Aunt Laya
