I'm Joining #Book Fairies on #BookLoversDay! #IBelieveinBookFairies

I'm so excited to get involved in this new (well, new to me!) project: The Book Fairies "hide books around the world for people to find, read, and then leave for the next person" - such a great way to share a love of reading and connect people throughout the world with each other and new books to discover!

Books donated by the Author Panel novelists,
getting ready to get shipped to Book Fairies!

I heard about this program via my author friend K.R. Conway, another local Cape Cod author with whom I've done a number of events (most recently the Author Panel on Cape Cod Author Night following the 2017 Teen Writers Conference).  There were 12 Authors there, and we all agreed to donate some of our books to go out together, in packages, to volunteers K.R. has lined up around the U.S. and even the world!  They will be our book fairies, hiding the various books around their towns and leaving clues via social media to help interested readers find them!

I've donated 5 books so far, can't wait to see where they go!

Authors and Readers, check out the website if you'd like to get involved: The Book Fairies.  And spread the word!  The hashtag is #IBelieveinBookFairies, and you can also find the official social media accounts associated with your part of the world here.

Happy Book Lovers Day!
