It's A Book Baby.

I'm so excited. Why? There's a new book baby in the world.  Yesterday, Michelle McLean (one of my brilliant CPs and fellow Operation Awesome blogger) celebrated the release of her book! 

*flails arms in Muppet fashion* Squeeee! 

Michelle will be stopping by tomorrow to do a guest post for me (so please pop by if you get chance and show her some more love!), but today I wanted to give her a huge shout out. 

May I present the book baby.

Here are the details. 

The newest addition to Career Press’s best-selling Homework Helpers series is a fun, user-friendly guide that takes the confusion out of writing essays and papers for students of all ages. Unlike other books that are so full of technical jargon they confuse more than help, Homework Helpers: Essays and Term Papers uses straightforward language and simple steps to guide students through the essay-writing process.

Homework Helpers: Essays and Term Papers

·  Describes in detailed "plain English" each element and step involved in writing a dozen different types of essays
·  Includes a rough, edited, and final draft sample of each type of essay discussed
·  Explains the necessity of proofreading and citing sources, providing tips and instruction on how to accomplish these tasks
·  Presents step-by-step instructions on how to write a great SAT essay
Students of all ages can find help on writing essays for every major subject in high school or college. Beginners will find guidance on the basics, while those further along in their educational careers can adapt the detailed instructions for more in-depth assignments.

Want to know more? Think this book could help the little essay writer in your life? The book is available at your favourite bookstores, but here are some linkies:

And in other news. The awesome Across the Universe by Beth Revis went straight in at number 7 on the NYT bestseller list. Beth will be stopping by Operation Awesome on Wednesday for a little interview. Oh, and there will be 2 copies of AtU up for grabs. Hope you can stop by.

Now I need to go eat a cookie before I faint from excitement.

Happy Friday.

Holy Canoli! There is a lot of awesome going on right now! First of all, I'm still squeeing about Michelle's book baby's birthday. Aww, it's so cute.

Second of all, WOOOT for Beth Revis hitting the NYT Bestseller list, and so high up! And DOUBLE WOOT (WOOT WOOT) for next Wednesday's interview with her. There just aren't enough woots left for the giveaway, but I'll send Oliver over to give you some more later.

Happy Friday to you, as well!
