The Friday Five - Millicent Marie Edition

Happy Friday! It's been an exciting couple of weeks with lots of MILLIE news ... so much, that I needed a Friday Five to get it all out there...


1. MILLICENT MARIE: JUST MY OPINION (Millicent Marie - Book 2)

It's here!! You asked, and I wrote. I know it took me a long time and a lot of convincing, but in the end, you were right—Millie's story was not finished, and I had a lot of fun hanging out with her again.  Here's the scoop:

The Story Continues!
Twelve-year-old Millicent Marie Harris thought her advice giving days were over. After all, her blog had been an epic disaster. But when her former crush convinces her it's time to take her skills to the big league, aka the school newspaper, she decides it might be worth giving it another try. It seems life might finally be getting back to normal for this sixth-grader.
However, there are other big problems brewing at Springside Elementary. Mr. Stiles, the school's long-standing and beloved principal leaves abruptly—replaced by Dr. Feather Foster, a newcomer with a harsh rule list a mile long. To make matters worse, there is trouble with the school play and suspicions that Millie's brother is still sneaking around her diary. Enlisting the help of her friends, Millie sets out to find the truth, in hopes of restoring peace to Springside Elementary before the school year is over and any more disasters occur.

2. COVERS!

While writing Book 2, I decided Book 1 deserved some love. That's when I contacted Najla Qamber from Qamberkids.com (Najla is the amazing cover designer behind my Whispered Wishes Series). She put me in touch with artist Danielle Styles, who worked her magic creating the fabulous color illustrations. Then Najla turned them into covers with her special touch. They did a great job, right?






3. PRETTIES!

The other day the postman brought me a big fat box of bookmarks, and now I want to give them to you! To get one, head on over to my Facebook page (Karen Pokras Toz, Author) and drop me a private message with your address (U.S. and Canada only please). A signed Millie bookmark and maybe one or two from my other books will be headed your way. I know you love your swag - what other Millie swag would you like to see?
