Catherine of Russia, new edition

Hello everyone ! 
   I'm happy to announce that Catherine, the Great Journey is available in paperback and for Kindle. Set in Russia in 1743, it's the final title in Scholastic's Royal Diaries series, and tells of the drama and intrigue when Catherine was a teenager.
   This portrait [right] shows her at age 15, when she first arrived in Russia. Her nickname was Figchen, meaning Darling Sophie.
   My husband took this photo [below] when Catherine and Eleanor of Aquitaine arrived in the mail this morning. I'm always thrilled to hold new editions, and feel excited about meeting new readers.  

happy author :)

Ms. Gregory, you and Roald Dahl are my 9-year-old daughter's favorite authors. I will show her the covers of the new editions--she has several of your books but it's always exciting to see new cover art. You have singlehandedly made my daughter interested not only in history (especially American history), but she has said how much she'd like to write for the Dear America series. Thank you! Anne-Marie, mother of Isabel

Thank you Anne-Marie! I appreciate your encouragement and am happy your daughter is interested in history--that's great! So glad you like the new covers, designed by my son. Thanks for taking the time to write me. Have a beautiful week.
