Bart King is on my mind for five reasons. I saved the best for last.
1. He's the author of two of my kids' favorite books.
2. He's a local author, like really local.
I think we might live within walking distance of each other.
3. We finally met in person.
My kids were a little starstruck when I told them Bart and I were at an author event together. He's interesting, generous, and full of good humor about the book business.
4. He has a new book out.
It's called The Big Book of Superheroes and a review will appear here shortly.
5. The Kindle edition of The Big Book of Boy Stuff is on killer sale right now.
At Amazon, the paperback is over $14, but right now (not sure for how long) the Kindle edition is $1.99.
A dollar ninety-nine! HELLO CHEAP SUMMER BOREDOM BUSTER.
(Sadly, the Kindle edition of The Big Book of Girl Stuff doesn't have the same discount, but it's still pretty inexpensive at under $7.50.)
If the days of summer are starting to feel pretty long, this might be a fun diversion.
Buy now at Amazon: The Big Book of Boy Stuff (Kindle edition), $1.99
