I'm looking for publishers & authors who are willing to send me new ARC's or books to profile on my 2011 Holiday Guide.
While I managed to gather a lot of great books at Book Expo last May, I need children's, tween and teen books badly.
I'll be donating ALL of the books to needy Michigan charities. As someone who grew up as a poor kid who loved to read, I know how happy your books will make these kids, especially since our libraries are closing and 40,000 children just got cut off welfare.
I can't accept e-books, but only because most children (and adults) living in shelters or foster care don't own e-readers.
You can check out my plea on my blog, or email me directly with the following information at thegirlfromtheghetto[at]gmail.
