We also highlight our International Book of the Month and our Bonus Books of the Month. Our Bonus Books are official picks that did not get chosen for the overall Book of the Month honors but are worthy of being highlighted and featured because they are quite simply amazing.
3. Announcement from Pulpwood Author Member Julia Daily!
Julia Brewer Daily’s “No Names to Be Given” had an exciting month in November. Daily traveled to Mississippi for a book signing at Pass Christian Books, Pass Christian, MS and Lemuria Books and Handworks Holiday Market, Jackson, MS. Although the book just launched in August, 2021, it is becoming a book club favorite sparking discussions about the complex topic of adoption in the ‘60s.
It has garnered several awards, including the NYC Big Book Award, Firebird Award, Pinnacle Book Achievement Award and the International Impact Award. Daily acquired an International BookBub Deal and “No Names to Be Given” hit the Top 100 list on Amazon in Canada. It is #1 Best Seller in Women’s History Studies on Amazon in the U.S.
The author is available by Zoom for book club meetings to discuss the book. Contact her at email@example.com.
4. Pulpwood Queen and Timber Guy Children’s Book Club
Years ago, Kathy started the Splinters and the Pinecones–two book clubs for kids that were a break off of the Pulpwood Queen and Timber Guy Book Club. Kathy started out in the book world as a Children’s Book Store manager, so children’s books have always had a special place in her heart.
But life happened and owning the beauty shop, the bookstore, running the Pulpwood Queens, and the children’s book club was too much to do on her own.
Sadly, she had to give some things up.
Now that she has a new executive director, she’s a grandmother of a little book lover, and so many Pulpwood Queen and Timber Guy members have become grandparents themselves–we think it’s time to start again! As authors, you need a place to promote your work–and readers need a place to find you.
So it’s my pleasure to introduce Reading With Queen Mama Kat!
Just like the author members of the original PQ/TG, when you join you will be featured in our newsletter, listed in our new section (New Children’s Authors), promoted on our Reading With Queen Mama Kat Facebook Page–we’ll have some fun with this! – and your books will be considered for the new Pulpwood Queen and Timber Guy Children’s Book Club reading list.
You will be eligible to purchase low-cost advertising in our Reading Nation Magazine (which will start a new children’s book section) and purchase banners to advertise your work on the website and newsletter.
This is just the start–once we get going, we’ll think of other ways to get you seen and your books read.
Children’s Book Authors – welcome to The International Pulpwood Queen and Timber Guy Book Club! Author membership for Children’s Book authors and/or Illustrators is the same – a $50 annual fee.
You DO NOT have to pay two memberships.
If you’re already an author member and you have a children’s book you want featured, contact Kathy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Now let’s have some fun!
5. The Cool Kat’s Club – Reading With The Pulpwood Queens and Timber Guys
We can’t leave out our middle-grade to young adult authors and readers!
6. Reading Nation Magazine
If you’re a member of the International Pulpwood Queen or Timber Guy Book Club and have a story you’d like to share in the READING NATION MAGAZINE, I’d love to hear it. Book Club Reader Members that includes you!
We love our readers, and you will always have a place in the magazine to share your news.
I’m looking for pets to feature on our If Our Pets Could Talk page, Authors and Their Art, photos & short essays of your local bookstores, and libraries. These pages are free! And readers of the magazine love them.
Did I say readers? As of January 30th Reading Nation Magazine has received a total of
PQ & TG authors – the regular pages to advertise your books are only $50 (and go down when you purchase more than one in an issue). That includes customized graphics of your book cover (and your author photo when you purchase more than one page) that are shared with a combined list of 12K readers, book reviewers, book clubs, and bookstagrammers over several social media sites. This low-cost advertising option is just one of the benefits of being a Pulpwood Queen or Timber Guy Book Club Author.
If you’d like more information on advertising opportunities or would like to submit your stories send an email to email@example.com or take a look at the order form here: https://forms.gle/6x2QBEkrTQ7BFNos9
