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

I know how very difficult the holidays can be for many people, and I want you to know I am always here for you. Y

Dear Kim (and friends), Today's post is a package within a package within a package. I bring you a book review, interview, and giveaway, all wrapped into one post. Katherine Locke saying all the good things at SCBWI's Fall Philly. On the blog today we welcome Katherine Locke , author, cat wrangler, and YA book advocate. Recently Katherine and I connected on stage at the annual Fall Philly SCBWI Conference. We talked activism, writing, and I fanned all over her new book, The Girl with the Red Balloon . Prior to Philly, I  followed Katherine’s blog, reading her posts about character and writing, and her journey to publication. I also participated in monthly GAY YA (now YA PRIDE ) book talks on Twitter where she sometimes moderated, and often participated, I also followed her on Twitter for her insights into this crazy *** world.   Then, just prior to her book's release  YA Reads connected us via their 2017 Debut Author Bash so that we could host a giveaway
