We are delighted to announce that our newly revamped website is live! sarahhoffmanwriter is now sarahandianhoffman and gives you info about things like Jacob’s New Dress and our public appearances. We have pages full of resources for parents of gender non-conforming kids and a recommended book list  for all ages, from toddler to adult. The website is a work in progress and we’d love for you to take a look at it and to tell us what you think!

Jacob’s World

sidebar-jnd-coverLots happening in the world of Jacob’s New Dress….

Today our interview with Our Family Coalition is up on their website. If you don’t know about their work, check them out–they do all sorts of fabulous education about LGBT parenting, families, and kids, and their work in schools is excellent.

There are currently two giveaways of Jacob’s New Dress on the blogs of two of my favorite mombloggers: Carrie Goldman of Portrait of an Adoption is doing a giveaway (and wrote a really thought-provoking review), and Lori Duron of Raising my Rainbow  is also doing a giveaway–comment on the blog for a chance to win your free, autographed copy. Thanks mamas!

We’ve got pics up on Facebook of Jacob’s New Dress in independent bookstores from California to Massachusetts. Please post photos of copies of Jacob when you see them–it’s so heartening to us to see them out in the world. Share photos of your family reading the book, and share your stories. We love to hear them!

So in all the excitement about Jacob’s New Dress coming into bookstores weeks in advance of its official March 1 release date, WE FORGOT THE MARCH 1 RELEASE DATE. So, um, YAY a few days late on the official release of Jacob’s New Dress!! We wanted to share some exciting news and ask for your help with promoting the book so we can share Jacob’s message of acceptance with the world.

Exciting news: This week we had a sweet review in Bay Windows, New England’s largest LGBT publication, and Kirkus wrote delightfully about Jacob and another book, Morris Michelwhite and the Tangerine Dress, which will be out in May. 

How you can help: Would you please help us spread the word about Jacob? Here are some things you can do…

 • If you’ve read and liked the book, please review it on Amazon.

• If you haven’t read Jacob’s New Dress, you can buy it here or at your local independent bookstore (local buy-it-now links coming soon to our about-to-be-unveiled new website)! 

• Stop in your local bookstores and ask them to stock it!

• Ask your local library to buy a copy!

• If you’re on Goodreads, please mark Jacob “want to read” or review it if you’ve read it.

 • Check out and comment on our reviews in Kirkus and Bay Windows!

• Tweet it! Facebook it! All-sorts-of-other-social-media it!

Thanks for all your support as we launch Jacob into the world. It is–and you are–truly invaluable to us.
