Getting the Gold Sticker Star – Cidney Swanson

Getting the Gold Sticker Star

Did you not love these as a kid?

I know I did. Well, apparently adults can get them, too. A couple of months ago I was all excited when Kirkus (who have a TM on this: The World’s Toughest Book Critics) (I am not making that up) gave my book a Starred Review.

I’m even more excited to report that they added my title to their annual list of 100 Indie titles to be named to Kirkus Reviews’ Best of 2012. As far as I can tell, twelve of those are children’s titles. And mine’s easy to find! So skedaddle on over there and read the review if you haven’t already. (I’ll wait.)

And if you would like to read the book itself but you’re afraid you might not like it because it is Science Fiction (you know who you are), how about trying it out for FREE? Yup. I could only think of one way to celebrate my gold sticker star. So grab an e-copy and party with me today.

I’m curious if anyone actually uses gold sticker stars anymore. It has been . . . awhile since I was in elementary school. Anyone know if they are in circulation currently?I feel another giveaway coming on as well. Would you like to gift a SIGNED paper copy of SAVING MARS to someone for the Holidays? Chime in on the gold sticker mystery below.

  1. I don’t think it took my comment the first time. Anyway, I still give gold stars to my piano students. 🙂 I’d love to be entered into your drawing.
