This is not Pamela Toler’s first rodeo. And by rodeo, I mean, book. She has written books for kids and adults about popular history for years. But this book is different. While for the other books she was under contract with her publishers for a particular book, with WOMEN WARRIORS, Pamela’s agent took HER IDEA on submission. Both ways designate her as a published author. She’s not a ghost writer. But this book is 100% Pamela and her research.
We’ve been friends now for about 10 years and since I no longer live in Chicago I won’t be celebrating with her IRL, but a shout-out on WFW will be the next best thing, because I can share it with all of you. I can project my voice, but chances are I wouldn’t reach all of you if I yelled READ PAMELA’S BOOK.
And, wouldn’t you know? Today is my birthday! I have two wishes.
First, that you check out Pamela D. Toler here. (No, it’s not fiction but I think it’s good to read widely! And truly. Women warriors!? YES.)
My second wish is that if you know someone in need of a book critique or a book coach, pass along my name and the special deal (or use it yourself). See, that was easy, wasn’t it?
Next year I’ll get you all party favors.
