Hello, friends, and Happy Wednesday! The past couple of weeks have been a bit of a whirlwind for me, with the long-awaited (at least, to me!) publication of The Jolly Regina, the first in my middle-grade trilogy, The Unintentional Adventures of the Bland Sisters. Many thanks to all of you for your support and encouragement.
Also, I’ve been working on the second Bland Sisters story AND the second book in THE INFAMOUS RATSOS series, I have a few new projects out on submission (fingers crossed!) and I’m now drafting the third and final (?) Bland Sisters adventure.
And then there was this amazing news:
In short: Life is very, very good right now, but also a bit exhausting (in the best possible way).
A few more fun things to point out:
- THE INFAMOUS RATSOS was named an Amazon Best Book of the Year for 2016, a Best of 2016 by All the Wonders, AND a 2016 Nerdy Award winner, PLUS it’s a finalist for the Cybils!
- If you haven’t already, check out this video of THE INFAMOUS RATSOS book talk with a great group called Bikers for Books. Talk about a match made in heaven!
- Check out this interview I did with the Infamous Mr. Schu!
- If you entered my Jolly Regina contest, check out my posting here of the list of winners (hint: you are on it!)
- Would you like me to visit your school? I’d love to! Contact me so we can work out the details.
- I just found out I’ll be appearing at the Hudson Children’s Book Festival on Saturday, May 6th in Hudson, NY! If you’re in the area, hope I’ll see you there.
- I have lots of future appearances still in the works — keep you posted!
Enjoy the rest of your week…
