I’ll be at the Hopkins Raspberry Festival Market Fair for some summer fun all day tomorrow from 9 am to 4 pm. My booth will be between 6th & 7th Streets on the south side. This is my first official event selling my new book, Little Mountain, Big Trouble, so come on over and buy one of the first available copies.

Little Mountain, Big Trouble, 3-D paperback cover

Reminder: LMBT is a middle-grade adventure, especially suited for readers in the 9-13 age group. However, adults will also enjoy the story about a 12-year-old boy and his adult mentor when they are matched in the Big Brothers Big Sisters program. As usual, the book is set in MN. The adventure for Little Brother and Big Brother is climbing Eagle Mountain in the beautiful BWCAW. If I did my job well, you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you’ll feel triumphant at the end.

The weather looks perfect (knock on wood!), so that’s no excuse not to enjoy the market fair along with all the other fantastic Raspberry Festival activities. Food, drink, music, games, kids activities, and FANTASTIC people-watching. Lots of dogs will be out and about with their owners too, if you like hanging out with dogs.

July and August will be busy months for me, so if you can come to the Raspberry Festival, check out my Events & Appearances page and find a time and place when we can meet.


Online Reviews

Thanks for keeping those reviews coming in. My total count on the Matt Lanier series is up to 178 ratings and reviews! My goal is 200 by the end of 2023, so the pace is good so far! Thanks for all who take the time. It only takes a few minutes to post a review online, and it doesn’t have to be more than a few sentences about what you liked or didn’t like about the book. I’ll keep you all posted on the total as it grows through the year.
