Authors Talk About it awards Who’s That in the Cat Pajamas? an Honorable Mention!

I am one proud writer. I had my book Who’s That in the Cat Pajamas? entered into the Authors Talk About it, 2017 Book Award Contest in the children’s genre and this book was awarded this amazing Honorable Mention.

ATAI Honorable Mention

I am so honored to have been awarded this award.  This is the first time they have done an Honorable Mention and I am so touched to be one of the first. It means the world to me.

One of the perks of the contest is a professional critique which provided a 5-star review.  This has been the most rewarding response to book 1 of the Dolcey Series.

 

“The colorful imagery within Who’s That in the Cat Pajamas?, illustrated by Ellie Barrett, add an additional element of fun and fantasy to Sojourner McConnell’s story. These occasional images help bridge a gap between young students who are ready to read more difficult books and embrace more complex concepts with readers who aren’t quite ready to give up the picture book feel. Who’s That in the Pajamas? is a very well-written story and has a fun story line all while sharing a message of hope and a lesson on how to cope with big life changes that are out of one’s control. Sojourner McConnell’s Who’s That in the Cat Pajamas?, the first in her The Dolcey Series, would make for a wonderful tool for parents who are looking for something to help their children deal with a big move away from family and friends. It’s simply a must read!”
Originally critiqued by a member of the Authors Talk About It team.

ATAI 5 Stars 900

Just as exciting and appreciated is the second place award from the Virtual Fantasy Con Awards for Who’s That in the Cat Pajamas? This one felt special because it was voted on by readers and fans of Docley. I never expected to come in second place.  It was amazing.

 

2nd place children's Fantasy award

When 2018 comes along, When a Pachyderm Comes to Visit will be entered for the contest and I hope that they find the value in this new story.  This book is now available in paperback and Kindle and will be warming hearts all over the world.  I hope you will join Dolcey and me in this magical and fun adventure.  When a Pachyderm Comes to Visit, is on sale only one more day. Then the price goes back up to $1.49.
