Book Launch

Book Launch for A Little Something Different


Tuesday August 26, 2014
7:00 PM
Please join us as we celebrate the official release of A Little Something Different by ‘our own’ librarian and author Sandy Hall! In the spring, our Young Adult Librarian, Sandy Hall, was tapped to publish her first book, A Little Something Different, about a girl named Lea and a guy named Gabe and how they just don’t seem to be able to connect romantically. The book is published through Swoon Reads, a new crowdsourced teen romance imprint of Macmillian Publishing. Read about Sandy in the New York Times.


They selected her manuscript from the nearly 200 that were accessible on their website. Sandy uploaded her novel in November 2013 and within weeks the manuscript received ‘five hearts’ from Swoon Reads community of users online who read the draft. The manuscript rose to the attention of the editors at Swoon Reads, who contacted Sandy and inked a deal to publish the novel. 

Since its launch on September 30, 2013, Swoon Reads has grown to include readers and writers from across the world who submit, read, and comment on manuscripts that capture the intensity and excitement of teen love. More than an imprint, Swoon Reads is a community whose members are involved in every step of the publishing process, from the initial discovery of the manuscript to the marketing and publicizing of the finished book.

Now, the published version of the book is complete and the Library is hosting the book launch on Tuesday, August 26 at 7:00 p.m., the official release date for the book. Copies of the book will be for sale and Sandy will be on hand to greet friends and patrons and sign any copies. A Little Something Different is an irresistible and original romance between two college students as told from fourteen different viewpoints, including a squirrel and a park bench! Please join us in celebrating Sandy’s first book.

Light refreshments will be served.

This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Morristown & Morris Township Library.
