A couple cool happenings for me lately:
- On May 7, my blog was the FEATURED CHILDREN’S LIT BLOG on Children’s Writing Update (the incredible newsletter for children’s writers from the publishers of Children’s Book Insider.) Here is what they had to say: In the past couple of years, there’s been an explosion in wonderful blogs about children’s books and the writing process. Now, in each issue of the Update, we’ll profile a unique and helpful blog.
This issue, we highlight an excellent example of an author’s blog. Children’s writer Cynthia Reeg discusses the craft of writing, her favorite books and useful tidbits for aspiring authors at her online journal. Thanks, Jon & Laura! You truly brought rays of sunshine to my otherwise supremely, soggy Wednesday.
- On May 9, while attending the end-of-year OASIS Intergenerational Tutoring luncheon, Carol Ottsen–the local director of the program–asked when my next picture book in THE PET GRAMMAR PARADE series was coming out. She told me how well KITTY KERPLUNKING: PREPOSITION FUN has been enjoyed by the tutors and children. So I was happy to inform her that the next book in the series, DOGGIE DAY CAMP: VERB & ADVERB ADVENTURES is already being illustrated by Kit Grady.
So now you know as well!
