BUT! I have an idea.Â And I need YOUR help.
I am going to make up some “author kits.Â In each there will be a copy of my new book, a stack of signed book plates, a cute T-shirt that says,
*I’m* Laurel Snyder
Author by proxy.
I will be happy to send a kit to you, if you will arrange a local reading for me.Â You can call up your local bookstore or library, and just say, “Hey!Â Can I crash storytime?”
They will say yes.
Then, you will don the shirt, and do a delightful reading in my place. You will “sign” books and you will chat with kids, and I will be very very very grateful to you.
So grateful that if you send me a picture of you, in the shirt, reading from the book at the event… I will thank you, by name, in my next book!
For real!Â How’s that?
No, I mean, it, would you do such a thing?
