Ultimate Blog Party 2011

Welcome to Books R Us and the Ultimate Blog Party

Nickelback Concert 2009I am so happy that you stopped by for a visit. My name is Melissa and I have been blogging with my mom, Eileen since 2009. I originally started Books R Us to promote my book Ginger High. Although the book never became a bestseller, I have learned a lot about publishing and writing.

I am a junior in high school and I have a passion for American Sign Language. When I graduate in 2012, I plan to become a certified Sign Language Interpreter and a Speech Pathologist. I plan to continue writing and I hope to finish the sequel to Ginger High Soon.

 Growing up my mom encouraged me to read as much as I could and boy did that pay off in school. When I am busy with schoolwork my mom runs the blog and keeps the posts active. We hope you enjoy the blog party and Books R Us.

Would you like to win a copy of Ginger High? (US/Can only)

  13. Hello from UBP! I review books, too, you should come visit!

    Have a great week.

  14. Found you via UBP11. I write book reviews on my blog too, just for fun. Most of the books I write about are Down syndrome-related. My 3-yr old son has Down syndrome and he's an absolute blessing in our lives. He gets speech therapy at his preschool and loves working with his speech therapist. I wish you all the best with your ambition to become a speech pathologist!

  15. Best wishes on your future career goals - you seem very motivated and have already published a book! Very impressive :-) I took ASL classes at a community college but my old brain didn't absorb it too easily :-(

  16. It's so nice to meet you from the hop. I'm glad you stopped by my place!

    I'm so impressed with your goals!

  17. I'd love a chance to win your book!

  20. Stopping by from the UBP. It's always nice to meet another writer!--though I didn't get serious about it until about 8 years after high school.

Myself, I've got a 2.5 year old son, another baby on the way, and I write science fiction whenever I can get everybody to bed. :)

    I'd love to look at your book. My email is
