A Digital Book Award (and more fun) for The Man with the Violin

Excited to be heading to Washington D.C. in a couple of days to celebrate The Man with the Violin with a joint signing with Joshua Bell – the man with the violin himself – at Politics & Prose Bookstore on Saturday morning.

Capitol, Washington, D.C.

Especially fun when Digital Book World has recently given the ebook version a Digital Book Award in the Ebook Fixed Format/Enhanced Children category.

Also because Tom Best from First Book in Canada will be featuring The Man with the Violin in an upcoming banner spot on their Canadian and US Marketplace.

Rights have been sold (I just discovered on Annick’s website) for Spanish and Korean translations, too.

Last but not least, my writer-friend Nan Forler and I will (after some mad-dash sight-seeing around the city) attend Joshua Bell’s concert at the Kennedy Centre that night.

Is promoting a book supposed to be this much fun?

    James, I hope if you have another chance to visit North America, you will let me know. It's a big continent, of course, but it would fun to see each other again and for you to meet Peter, too, if we could manage it. I hope you and the rest of my Liberian friends are keeping well.
