Good News on Several Fronts
What an honor! It seemed to me as if I were at a great party where I got to hang with a bunch of people I greatly admire and then--as a bonus--got the same pretty crystal award they did too (how did that happen?).
Rubbing elbows with Deborah Wiles, James Dashner, Laurely Snyder, Elizabeth O. Dulemba and many other fine writers and illustrators (for the complete list, go here: just reinforced how much of a fangirl I am around other writers.
I also spoke, for the first time, about my latest release, Cleopatra Rules! at the Suwanee Festival of Books. It was a lot of fun and my cardboard mummy mask only fell down a couple of times. Plus, I got to sit next to Jackson Pearce (Sisters Red and As You Wish) at the signing table afterward and am still hoping I didn't embarrass myself too much around her (see above: fangirl issues).
Next weekend, come see me at the Decatur Book Festival!
PS: Thanks, Stan Dulemba, for the photo!
