When I was a little girl, I (without question) loved to read. In elementary school, I would beg my mom to let me buy books from the Scholastic list that my school would distribute to students twice a year. Usually, I was able to get a few dollars to buy at least one (maybe two) of the popular books listed in the newspaper-like order form that teased my young mind about the places it could take me and the characters I would meet.
It was here that I was introduced to talented authors such as Dodie Smith (The Hundred and One Dalmatians), Frances Hodgson Burnett (The Secret Garden), P. L. Travers (Mary Poppins), Judy Blume (Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing), and countless more. It was also where I discovered my love of cookbooks (Don't judge me!).
Today, by pure happenstance, my husband found Selena's Song: Book One of The Siren Series in The Library of Congress' catalog! This means my book was selected by the Selection Librarians of the Library of Congress to be cataloged and assigned an LCCN [Library of Congress Control Number]. Libraries here I come! Eeeeeeeeee!
It is the greatest honor I could have wished to have; to be listed amongst the writers that have inspired me so much, as well as to join my father-in-law (may he rest in peace) on the list.
My heart is truly full! Thank you for sharing this special acknowledgment with me!
Until the next time,
I wish you peace, joy, and great books to read!
