More fun news from Laura: “My novel is now out on Kindle:
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005HRNIUK Please pass on the word.  It’s a bucket of fun Berkeley story. With social class, sexual politics and mom stuff thrown in too.”

Laura A. Novak launches her new e-book Novel on Scribd Float

I just received this wonderful news from colleague Laura A. Novak (Laura is the new co-vice president and yours truly Teresa LeYung Ryan is the secretary for the of Women’s National Book Association-San Francisco Chapter).

 

 

 

 

Laura says:

“I am thrilled to report that I launched my e-book novel on Scribd  just as they launched their new iphone app yesterday at Fortune Tech in Aspen – and made Finding Clarity: A Mom, A Dwarf and a Posh Private School in the People’s Republic of Berkeley a feature!

Float is THE new way to read books, blogs, articles, and social media on an iphone – and it’s very exciting to have me as an author, and my new novel, featured there. Check it out and please give Finding Clarity a whirl!  Scribd really is changing the way the world reads!
Thank you all and happy summer, Laura “
