staff, however we have a
detailed promotion ready to begin as soon as we get help. The
first step in this promotion will be to contact the
owners of the 1500 custom Billboards we have created and placed on the
Mall. Over 500 of these Billboards are links to children's book related
blogs, who will be offered a
free year's subscription in exchange for a mention of ChildrensBookMarket.com. Billboards
have also been built for publishers, booksellers, gift merchants and

their websites (literacy and other non-profit Billboards will not be
charged any fees, but will be contacted for possible partnership
