Two Upcoming Releases

I have two new books releasing this year, and I can't wait for you to read them:

BE STRONG. In this follow-up to the NYT bestselling BE KIND, Tanisha shares how she can be strong by showing up, speaking up and never-ever giving up. You'll be inspired to access your inner strength. The book is illustrated by Jen Hill and published by Roaring Brook Press. It released Aug. 10 and can be ordered now.

WHAT CAN YOU DO WITH A ROCK? Rocks are magical. Inspirational. Useful. This book is an ode to the endless, creative fun you -- or a child in your life -- can have with a simple rock. It's illustrated by Katie Kath and published by Sourcebooks. Pre-order it now, and you'll receive it on its release date -- Oct. 12.

If you’re so inclined, you can order any of my books online through:

Or, you could order from an independent bookstore. My local favorites are Mystery to Me, A Room of Ones Own and Kismet Books.

Indie bookstores might have my books in stock and on their shelves. And, if they don't, they will order them for you. Most stores will even ship your order right to your door.

To find an independent bookstore, visit IndieBound. You can enter your ZIP code and see what’s nearby.

And, if you’re a GoodReads user, you could write a review.

Here’s a list of other ways you can help support authors you know and/or like.
