***MEET LYNN STEVENS, AUTHOR OF FULL COUNT***


Lynn Stevens flunked out of college writing her first novel. Yes, she still has it and no, you can't read it. Surprisingly, she graduated with honors at her third school. A former farm girl turned city slicker, Lynn lives in the Midwest where she drinks coffee she can't pronounce and sips tea when she's out of coffee. When she's out of both, just stay away. 

For more information, please visit her site at

Or, you can find her on Facebook 



***Deleted scene from FULL COUNT***
WARNING: The exclusive content is a little more racy than we normally share on the blog. 
Mallory laughed as I lay spent beside her some time later.
“Not a ringing endorsement,” I deadpanned.
That only made her laugh harder. When her stomach rumbled, she stopped and stared down at it as if it had spoken.
“Pizza?” I asked, putting my hand on her stomach. “They deliver.”
The laughter returned and I thanked God that I got to hear it again.
“Afraid to be seen with me in public?” she asked with a grin.
I leaned in and nuzzled that spot beneath her ear that caused her body to shiver. “You know better than that,” I answered between kissed. “That’s not the problem.”
She leaned back and stared at me for a minute. “Then what’s the problem?”
I stretched toward her, pressing my lips firmly on hers. “Going out requires clothing. I’d rather not see you dressed right now.”
“You’re so bad,” Mallory whispered against my lips.
“Only when it comes to you, love.”
Mallory pushed me off her and reached down, finding my t-shirt on the floor. She pulled it over her head. It gathered at her hips like a tent. Damned that was sexy.
“Chinese delivers too.” She stood and let the shirt fall to her knees. I swear she swayed her hips with the sexiest swagger I’d ever seen. Watching her bend to dig into her purse, my heart swelled with pride. This impossibly beautiful, majestically brilliant girl loved me. Me, a dumb jock. She was so much better than me.  I didn’t deserve her, but there was no way in hell I was ever letting her go. 

Kim's BONUS BOOK GIVEAWAY...

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…

Book Review: PAX by Sara Pennypacker

Dear Kim,

I am happy to hear that you are feeling better (Baby too.) You and I find common ground in our young adult, even adult, book recommendations. I typically leave Donna to send us recommendations about terrific Middle Grade novels. But, boy oh boy, do I have one for you today.

I need to keep up with the best in Middle Grade fiction in order to engage my small literature group of amazing readers that I meet with at our local elementary school. This school year we've already read Kathy Erskine's Mockingbird and R.J. Palacio's Wonder. Currently we are enjoying Kwame Alexander's The Crossover. When we finish Alexander's novel-in-verse, our next pick is PAX.


Oh, PAX.
I could write a love song about this book.
Hey, that's not a bad idea. The kids might enjoy writing a song about the love between Peter and Pax.




Peter and Pax were best friends. Peter, age twelve, needed a friend like Pax to rise from the lose of his mother. And Pax, well Pax needed Peter too. Pet…
