Hello Kyra,
Congrats on your new book! I know you must be excited. I also have a new book. My debut novel can be view at my website: www.pamelamtuck.com. There you can read a 1st chapter excerpt and listen to my live radio interview discussion. Take care and happy writing!
Comment by Jacquitta McManus on 8/13/2010 at 1:18 PM:
Hello Kyra, I really like the teal cover. The design really gives the book the feel of an adventure and for me the first thing I focused on was the title and then the image, which I like. I also like the back cover. The yellow background and the framing of the text really adds interest.

Thanks for friending me. I like your book cover art. I know others that quilt, though I've never tried it myself.

Kyra, thanks so much for inviting me to be friends. Forgive me for taking so long to response. I hardly ever get the time to come over and check out the site. I'm working all the time. How can I get your books?? I would love to speak with you sometime. My email is [email protected] ... more

Thanks Kyra, I think it should be in stores by March but I'll be selling copies at the book festival in Philadelphia Feb. 6th.
Comment by Margo Candelario on 1/19/2010 at 9:50 AM:
Greetings Kyra, after reading your post it saddened me deeply. As I loaded up my car with several copies of my book in hopes for a shot of recognition, I believed that the CSK committee would rip open my envelope with excitement. Now I'm inclined to believe that my books were put into a bin marked u... more

Hi Kyra,

Yes I do recommend book trailers as a marketing tool. They are commercials that can potentially reach thousands of people. So great to hear from you. :)
Comment by P. Smith on 8/22/2009 at 10:49 PM:
Soooo happy for you Kyra and much success on your sales. Currently, I'm hard at work on a novel, but hope to have time to read some of your work, eventually. Bless you.
Comment by Retinna Bell on 8/22/2009 at 9:45 PM:
AWESOME! I just checked out your new book! It's fabulous. I am taking a Children's Literature course at UCF this semester. We're required to read 32 children's books. I'd love to showcase your book in class. Good luck and God bless!

Congratulations Kyra - another book - that's a great achievement. You've inspired me to post details of my latest book on Jacketflap!
Comment by Barbara Jean Hicks on 8/21/2009 at 1:40 PM:
Thanks for checking out my book, too, Kyra! Less research, more lies. :-) After all, how can anyone really KNOW what monsters eat?!
Comment by Nicole Tadgell on 8/21/2009 at 1:13 PM:
Congratulations! I'm looking forward to seeing your newest book!
Comment by Barbara Jean Hicks on 8/21/2009 at 11:42 AM:
Kyra, the reviews on amazon are wonderful. So you are a scholar as well as an artist! It sounds like this will be a great resource for classes in both Women's Studies and Black Studies. I'm almost embarrassed that my new (picture) book is so simple and silly--but there's a place for that too! It's c... more

Thank you kindly ma'am. As of now, I'm a full-time performance poet who shies from the limelight/ aspiring animation director who can't draw worth a lick...any tips :-)
Comment by Linda Mitchell on 2/18/2009 at 4:49 PM:
Thanks for responding. Yes, the squares are very. I probably should hire somebody to sew the squares together for me one day. I'll probably never get around to it.
Comment by E.O. Simon on 2/16/2009 at 6:32 PM:
Hello Kyra, and that's a pretty name. Thanks for chosing me to be your friend.
Quilting huh? That sounds interesting. One of my aunts did quilting. I still have one of her quilts she made before she died.
Well, have a blessed Monday. :o)

I'm not familiar with the annual Coretta Scott King Awards for African American children's literature and illustrations? How do I enter my work?

Best, Kyra

Comment by Barbara Jean Hicks on 8/25/2008 at 11:17 AM:
Hi Kyra, I knew there had to be other Hicks writers besides me and my siblings out there! It seems to come with the genes. I hope your childhood cat Humphrey was as inspiring as my cats have been. My very first cat in childhood was a tuxedo cat named Lucky (she lived 18 years!) but the inspiration f... more
