Okay, this has got to be the cutest book promo idea we’ve seen in a long time. Children’s/YA author Lisa Schroeder is posting “fun with cupcakes” videos on her website every Tuesday and Thursday leading up to the September 20th release of her new middle grade novel, Sprinkles and Secrets, the much awaited sequel to the utterly delicious It’s Raining Cupcakes (which we celebrated here).
