18 Things...

In the back of my mind, I've always toyed with the idea of becoming an author some day.  Some day hasn't arrived for me yet, but it has for my friend and colleague, Jamie Ayres.

  Jamie is a third grade teacher at my school and she has done the "almost impossible".  Not only is she a wife, she's an amazing mom to two beautiful girls, a full-time teacher AND now she is an author.  Her first book, 18 Things, will be released on Thursday (Jan. 24).  If you (or someone you know) enjoys YA literature, this is one book I think you will want to read.  Knowing Jamie, there will be some powerful lessons about life in the book (that's just the kind of person she is - always teaching!) 

If you would like more information, click on the pic of the book above to visit her blog. 

18 Things is being published by a small publishing house, so there is not really a budget for marketing and promotion.  Instead, we are organizing a "Book Bomb" on Amazon.  If you are interested in picking this book up, and can purchase it on Thursday, it will help drive her book to the top of the search results.

I am so excited for Jamie.  I know how long and hard she has worked for this day.  I can't wait to get my copy and start reading.

Happy Blogging!
