Title: Genesee Valley Parent Magazine Book Nook Reviewer!
Post by: dinalapomy101 on February 02, 2014, 08:17 AM
So I've scored my first paid review writing gig! (To be fair, VOYA does pay me in free books. :)) I am now the freelance writer for our local Genesee Valley Parent Magazine and my first printed reviews are in this month's edition. You can see it on page 22 here:


http://www.rocparent.com/publications/issues/index.php?issue=140201&title=February%202014


You may also recognize the cover the editor decided to use as the image (Salina Yoon, I'm looking at you!) (There's also a shout out to Kate Messner and Jackson Pearce.)


Thanks for everyone's support!
