I want to thank everyone who stopped by the Sigma's Bookshelf table at the Twin Cities Book Festival on Saturday. We had a very successful event!
We launched our 20th teen authored book at the festival, and our two latest authors signed copies of their books. The event was extra special for Caroline Jude, author, The Elemental Lies, thanks to Pioneer Press Books Editor Mary Ann Grossman, who stopped at the table to say hello and learn more about Caroline's book. We of course gave her a complimentary copy. We hope she enjoys the story!
The Elemental Lies is the story of a young girl who decides to travel north to Duluth with her friends in the weeks before college begins. She didn't realize that decision would change her life forever. Caroline is a student at East Ridge High School in Woodbury, Minnesota.
Samantha Gibson, the author of our 19th teen authored book, Hostage, also appeared at the festival.

One of the best ways for authors to sell books is to target their most likely audience. Hudda Ibrahim of Diverse Voices Press has done a good job of it. The characters in her childrens' book are mostly Somali, and with RMA Publicity's help, she has been targeting communities with large concentrations of Somali families.
From October 15 - 17, 2022, she will be presenting in Lewiston, Maine which has an estimated 10,000 residents of Somali descent. RMA Publicity has arranged a library event for her at the Lewiston Public Library on October 15, with two events to follow on October 16 and 17 at area elementary schools. Hudda will be reading from her two career books for children: What Color is My Hijab? and Lula Wants to Wear A Badge.
A preview story about her events has been published in the Lewiston Sun Journal newspaper. To learn more about Hudda Ibrahim's work, and Diverse Voices Press, go to DiverseVoicesPress.com.
October is the month of mystery, and the perfect time to launch a new reading series! Midwest Mystery Works in association with Twin Cities Sisters in Crime, Once Upon A Crime Bookstore and Ultra Creative Advertising are excited to announce the kickoff event for Minnesota Mystery Night!
