- I spent last evening with a wonderful, friendly group of book club women who chose my book SPITFIRE as their selection for this month. It was terrific to hear the variety of books they’d read together, including LOVING FRANK by Nancy Horan and LETTERS IN THE ATTIC by Bonnie Shimko. They were all smart and funny and delightful, and just as excited to see my copy edited pages of THE BRILLIANT FALL OF GIANNA Z as I was. It was wonderful to spend an evening with people who are so excited about books and open to reading such a variety of genres.
- When I got home, I managed to squeak out another thousand words on my work-in-progress, SUGAR ON SNOW – and hit the 22,000 mark last night!
- I got THE HUNGER GAMES back from my son, who stole it two days ago and wouldn’t give it back. He’s done now, so I finally get to read the rest.
- And…(ready for the best thing this Thursday?) cynthialord is coming to my middle school today!! We read RULES earlier this fall and are all so, so excited to hear her speak. So I’d better sign off….
Rule #1 for Author Visits: When there’s a fabulous, famous author coming to your school, you’d better get there on time!
