More Shameless Book Promotion


My picture book biographies, Nancy Kelsey Comes over the Mountain and John and Annie Bidwell: The Long and the Short of It, are both available on Amazon. But I need to some reviews! If you have bought or read the books (available at a library near you, I hope) then you could post a review.


I have started sending out postcards to schools, museums, and libraries advertising my latest book. If they go to Amazon to look at the book, I think it would encourage them to buy it if it had some good reviews. I hope you think so too, and can help me out.

Gary Kurutz, who is curator emeritus of the  California State Library and executive director, California State Library Foundation (and a very nice person) said of the Nancy Kelsey book:

“Nancy Leek is a master story-teller and has brought to life the heroic 1841 overland trek of Nancy Kelsey. Her book proves that women could handle just about any obstacle thrown their way.”

You can order the book here at Goldfields Books or you can order from Amazon or you can buy it locally, but whichever you do, I hope you will post a review.
