Life has been hectic, lately! I just returned from speaking at the University of Virginia at Wise. (Another post to come on this!) So I do apologize for not posting these last few weeks. However, I do have news.
I recently found out that MINE! was an SCBWI Crystal Kite winner for the Texas-Okla. area. Entered by the illustrator, Patrice Barton–MINE! rose up through the ranks via voting by other children’s book writers and illustrators. What an honor, to be recognized by one’s colleagues. Way to go, Patrice! Info on the Crystal Kites is at: http://www.scbwi.org/Pages.aspx/2012-Crystal-Kite-Winners.
Finally, I recently sold a new manuscript to Knopf! YAY! It will be a kind of companion book to MINE! Tentatively titled: UH-OH! Since it just sold, it will be a while before it is out. More info on this later. . .
