I am excited to share that Good Manners Kids Stuff Press has published its fourth book: Tabletop Tipsters.
You can see the book cover over on the right.
Tabletop Tipsters teaches table manners by using colorful, illlustrated "placemats." The book opens up and down like a calendar, so the pages are the shape and horizontal layout of placemats. We follow cute characters Bailey Puppydog, Sammy Gator, Katie Doll, Danny and Teddy Birthday Bear before, during and after their meals as table manners are explained through their examples. It's a common sense approach that kids and parents will enjoy -- and remember!
Now that Tabletop Tipsters is published, we're finishing up its websites, starting the tagging on Amazon, setting up a giveaway on Goodreads, doing the Twitter and Facebook thing, and getting ready to send out press releases. (It's sad but true that the marketing is more work than the actual writing! But no one would know about it unless we marketed -- plus, it's a fun challenge figuring out what works.)
We're also gearing up for a couple of book fairs and signings in October and November at which we are featuring all of our books. It's hard to believe that it's been almost a year since The Month of Zephram Mondays was published! Fans of the whimsical tween fantasy adventure have been asking when The Tale of Time Warp Tuesday and more of the Zephram Tales will be available. Now that our manners-themed books are established, Zephram will be our the highest priority!
Until our next update, Happy Reading!
