In honor of my newest book’s launch—and the start of beach season . . .  here’s a little trailer ya’ll might enjoy!

 

Patrice Barton’s art is sweet and fun at the same time. What a talent . . . and drawing babies is not easy! They are always on the move and their round faces do not have all the “character” lines and hollows we accumulate as we age.

 

Below is the Trailer. I suggest you click on the angled brackets in the lower right corner and watch it full screen with the audio up. (The music is fun, too!)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Inspiration through SCBWI

Inspiration through SCBWI

I just have to say that I am still on a high from Florida’s SCBWI conference. Way to go Linda Rodriguez Bernfeld and your team!! What a great line-up for the all-day general sessions on Sat. Chris Crutcher (funny & moving), Augusta Scattergood and her editor Andrea Pinkney (sweet), Sara Pennypacker (passionate & inspiring), Peter Brown (thoughtful & zany) and the inimitable Lois Duncan whose first book for teens came out in 1956! (Wise & funny . . . she’d written so many that at one point she had to go onto amazon.com to check and see if she’d written a particular title that a movie producer was interested in! She couldn’t remember. Wonderful stories of the writing life.)

What a way to keep the writing fires stoked! Many thanks to my writing community and to the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators.

2014: Shutta’s Scholarship to NY for MI–SCBWI Members

2014: Shutta’s Scholarship to NY for MI–SCBWI Members

Shutta’s Scholarship Solution to the (upcoming) Winter Doldrums is Here Again!

If you are interested in attending the annual SCBWI Winter Conference in New York City but feel you can’t afford it—think again! With a little help you might find yourself at the Grand Hyatt in NY on a blustery wintry day. (Provided you are a member of the Michigan Chapter of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators.)

For the fourth year in row, I am renewing my offer to pay the full early-bird registration fee for a Michigan SCBWI member to attend. The qualifying rules are listed on the application form which is posted on the MichKids SCBWI website and is now at my site off the “For Writer’s” page and on the sidebar.

The conference is Feb. 21-23, 2014. See the national SCBWI site at: http://www.scbwi.org for details about the conference. But start getting your chicks in line, now, to apply. You never know what magical thing might happen to you there!

Kelly Barson, a past winner said: “Ever since I joined SCBWI, I’ve wanted to attend a national conference. The timing seemed perfect for 2012, but my bank account disagreed. Shutta’s generous scholarship made my dream trip a reality.”

Any questions, feel free to contact me (below by replying to this post), or at my Contact Me page.

 

Dream Big!
