Happy Blog-o-Versary to Us!

This week is our one year BLOG-O-VERSARY! When I first started this blog, I wasn't really sure what direction it would take, how it would work, or if anyone would even read it. The only thing I was sure about was I wanted this to be fun. Luckily, that goal has been reached because I am fortunate enough to be working for a publisher that lets me write about velociraptors, making desserts, and baseball, just to name a few. 

The next year will bring all kids of wonderful and exciting things, including a brand new member of our publicity team, Emily. You can start following her on Twitter at @EmRivet. I know that all of our loyal blog readers will love getting to know her and the contributions she will be making to Peachtee and the blog-o-sphere in 2011. 

Along with a new member to the publicity team, we're giving you a new way to read and review our books! Peachtree Publishers is now a member of NetGalley. If you're not a member, you'll want to sign up for galleys galore! You can download PDFs onto your computer or e-reader of Peachtree's upcoming This Girl is Different by J.J. Johnson, as well as get a sneak peak of The Cheshire Cheese Cat written by Carmen Agra Deedy and Randall Wright. 

Lastly, in celebration of one year of blogging, we'll be giving away a grab bag of books! To enter, just leave us a comment about Peachtree, our blog, our Twitter, or our books, along with your e-mail address. Thank you for supporting Peachtree Publishers (& our blog!) over the past year and going into 2011.
