Dual Release Party
for Two Awesome Austin Authors!!!

Wish Girl


Colonial Madness




We're thrilled to host a big celebration today for new books by two of our favorite Austin authors who write for young readers! Nikki Loftin will be here with Wish Girl, a magical, moving story of a young boy who moves to the Texas Hill Country and befriends a "Make-A-Wish" girl undergoing cancer treatment. Jo Whittemore will be here with Colonial Madness, the story of a girl who hopes to win a new home and debt-free life for her and her mother by accepting the challenge of a deceased relative: live for two weeks as in colonial times. It's going to be a great afternoon! Join us!


Nikki Loftin lives with her Scottish photographer husband just outside Austin, Texas, surrounded by dogs, chickens, goats, and rambunctious boys. She is the author of the multiply starred-reviewed Nightingale’s Nest and The Sinister Sweetness of Splendid Academy, which Publisher’s Weekly called “mesmerizing” and Kirkus called “irresistible.” Her next novel, Wish Girl, will be published on February 24, 2015.


Jo Whittemore is the author of "Front Page Face-Off", "Odd Girl In", and "D is for Drama", all with Aladdin MIX. She currently lives in Texas and is an active member of the Texas Sweethearts, a group of Texas-based children's book writers who make appearances at panels and conferences throughout the country.
