A Holiday Wish & Nerdy Book Club Feature "It's Not You, It's Me..." by Kim Briggs

Dear Alison and our readers,
If you subscribe to my newsletter, this is a duplicate. You don't need to keep reading but feel free to comment. If you don't then, it's new to you!! 

Wishing you a joyful holiday season! Please know I'm always thinking of you and so very thankful and blessed to have you in my life. 
Today, Nerdy Book Club is featuring a guest post I wrote, "It's Not You, It's Me: Talking About The Things We Don't Talk About: Mental Health in YA Fiction" by Kim Briggs. I am really proud and a little (extremely) starstruck to be featured by Nerdy Book Club. The article captures my more serious and thoughtful side, the side I don't often reveal in my newsletters, my writing, or on the blog, InkSistersWrite,  a side I keep hidden most of the time, but a side that's there nonetheless. I know how very difficult the holidays can be for many people, and I want you to know I am always here for you. You are not alone.
It's okay not to be happy and joyful or even silly all the time. It's okay to want to curl up in a ball and cry. It's okay to be you. So, if you want to stay home, read a book, and eat chocolate, go for it. Be true to you. And if anyone tries to give you slack about it, tell them Kim told me it's okay.
Wishing you hugs and peace and hours to read,
As a thank you to all my faithful fans and friends, I'm offering AND THEN HE for $.99 until Tuesday, December 26th. That's a STEAL! After the 26th, it will be $1.99 until the 29th...Be sure to grab your copy of AND THEN HE today, so you're ready to cuddle up on the 26th. Let's get it on the best sellers list!
AND THEN HE, A Psychological Thriller
A night of innocent flirting with a handsome stranger turns into a nightmare Tiffani can’t escape. 
From a 5 Star Review on Amazon:
All I can say is WOW
I have never read anything by this Author and I was stunned by how good AND THEN HE is. It is very dark a woman's worst nightmare brought to life. I very seldom rate a book 5 star. It must really touch me emotionally.
Don’t miss this hot thriller!
Grab AND THEN HE for $.99

FIRST SNOW by Bomi Park: Classroom Activity and Review

Dear Kim,

Let it snow!
Let it snow!
Let it snow!

We had fun with Bomi Park's gorgeous FIRST SNOW last week. We used the book as a mentor text to explore personal narratives and poetry.  We also explored watercolor resist techniques. (We also made a mess-- which is kind of my modus operandi during writing workshop. Sorry, Kelley!)

I used the sentence starter from the jacket copy:
Look up. One flake falls, then another. And just like that—it's __ __ __ __ __ __ __ .

The kids worked cooperatively at their table groups to discuss what word might fill in the blank. I love hearing them chat. 
"Well it is a snowflake because 'one flake'." 
Followed by: "No. It has seven letters, snowflake has nine." 
And: "It is an action. A-- what's that called-- a verb because it is something falling." 
Eventually we filled in the blank by using spelling clues to check our thinking, which might not sound like a whole lot of fun, but spelling is awesome and totall…

KIM NEEDS YOUR HELP!! Please, oh please!

Today is the day! STARR LOST, BOOK 2 of the STARR FALL SERIES is only...
and I need your help. I've purchased ads from some major social promoters, and if all goes well, STARR LOST will make it to the bestselling list.  Amazing things happen to authors and their books when they make the Bestselling list, so if you could purchase a copy or two (or three) for 99 cents it'll help hurl me to the top.

So, let's see what happens when we all combine our buying power together.

And to thank you for your WRITER LOVE, I'm running a  $10 AMAZON GIFT CARD GIVEAWAY... to enter, email a copy of your receipt to KimBriggs [@]

Write on, Kim
