Random Acts of Publicity Week

In honour of Random Acts of Publicity Week I’m featuring an eclectic collection of new books on my blog today. Here they are:

RUNNING TO EXTREMES, by Steve Pitt

JUST DESSERTS, by Eric Walters
http://www.amazon.ca/Just-Deserts-Eric-Walters/dp/0143179357 

Last two books are “sort of a team effort – same subject (extreme running and Ray Zahab) treated by two different authors in two different ways.” They are cross-promoting each other’s book. How’s that for writerly fellowship?

REACHING, by Judy Ann Sadler. A new picture book, illustrated by Susan Mitchell
