24 Hours London by Marsha Moore

This is Marsha Moore holding her new book 24 Hours London, which is on its way to me! Don't you love it when you win a book prize and meet a new author at the same time? Out of dozens of commenters on Nicola Morgan's blog, I was picked to win 24 Hours London. I can't wait to read it cover to cover and plan my trip to the UK!

And congratulations, Marsha, on the release of your first book! May it be hugely successful!


  1. Aw, thank you so much, Karen! I really hope you like the book!

  2. wow! That is way cool! and boy, you're really changing things up over here!

  3. I love your new background. It is fabulous!! (Sorry, I can't spell.)

  4. I LOVE the pic of the Giraffe. And, yay! You won a book!

  5. I think I would love to be a giraffe. Or an elephant. Or a whale. Anything enormous.

  6. I feel like a giraffe and look like a whale lol.

    M., this giraffe pic was taken by my son who's on a mission in South Africa. His first 9 months were in Namibia and he emailed us so many wonderful pictures he took--giraffes, wildebeasts, lions, stuff like that. It made me love Namibia and want to go there!
