[prMac.com] Sacramento, California - With the release of Suzanne Collin's highly anticipated final book in the Hunger Games trilogy, she is doing a three-month, twelve-city tour to promote Mockingjay, meet fans, and sign books. Kids Book Review App has added every tour stop into the new Events listings, making it simple for parents and fans to find the closest tour stop and get quick directions to it.
"The Hunger Games was one of the first books we reviewed two years ago as we started publishing the Sacramento Book Review, so it's very gratifying to be part of the final chapter as well" said Heidi Komlofske, owner of 1776 Productions. "Catching Fire, the second book in the series, was our lead review in our first Science Fiction & Fantasy insert in September 2009."
The Kids Book Review App is still free as a promotion with Amulet Books for the Diary of a Wimpy Kid Truck Tour, ending Saturday August 28, 2010. Ross Rojek, senior editor of the Sacramento Book Review said "We've been gratified to see the number of people who've taken advantage of the free downloads, not only in the United States, but around the world." Rojek continued, "with the new social media built into the app, users can now post about the tour stops directly to their Facebook page and Twitter feed at the same time, without leaving the app."
Kids Book Review App has more than one thousand Children's, Tweens and YA book, and adds new reviews every week. The Audible Authors podcasts now built into the app are interviews with Children's, Tweens and YA authors with new book releases. Kids Book Review App will be adding a new author interview each week.
