This is it folks, my last monthly children's book release post. Enjoy it!
I began doing these at the beginning of the pandemic to support authors publishing books in an environment in which they couldn't do traditional in-person promotion. Now we have a robust virtual author appearance system, and on-site author appearances are slowly coming back. While these book round-ups have been good for my blog in terms of bringing visitors here, and I've gained new Twitter followers while doing them, creating them is hugely time consuming. And then there's promoting the post on Twitter afterwards. All of this has kept me from doing other types of blogging and even cut into my overall writing time.
So, the situation has changed, thus it's time for me to change what I'm doing.
Oh, and for the last time--these are just the September book releases I stumbled upon on social media. Many more books were published this month.
