And The Winners Are- Newbery Medal Announced

The 2013 Newbery has just been announced. Congratulations to Katherine Applegate.

I have one of the Honor books, Three Times Lucky by Sheila Turnage sitting on my desk right now, that I happened to nab from the Library this past weekend. So now I'm adding several more great reads to my "To Do" Lists.
I better get going.............

Could Not Resist a Million More Reads-

So I am checking out about a million books from the Library today. In my arms and book bag I have picture books, middle grade, chapter books and several YA. So the Librarian looks up at me and says,  
       "Well looks like the kids are going to be very, very busy."                                                                         
I just smile-
       " Yes, I will."

Playing Around

So, how does one relax before starting the new year full of projects and goals. You caught me, playing with a few swirls and colors as a warm up exercise.  But now I've  also finished several middle grade books I never got to finish and that was after I reread Cheryl Klein's fantastic book on writing, Second Sight, which I adore. So why all this prep? I'm starting some serious revisions and need to get my mind right. Darn, where is my Random house Word Menu book? Yikes

My Representation by Pomada Larsen Literary Agency- 2013

Wonderful News for the New Year
Announcing Representation!

I'm doing a happy dance. 
Spinning and twirling, all because I just signed with Pomada Larsen Literary Agency. So thrilled to join this talented, great agency.
I'll be represented Pam van Hylckama Vlieg.
Can't think of a better way to begin 2013.
Pam has two of my projects; a picture book and chapter book. So I take a big breath, roll up my sleeves and begin the journey.
