1. My new regional MG historical novel, Champlain and the Silent One, is available for pre-order on Amazon! Seeing it there with a cover and a blurb and everything brings it one step closer to real. The book is due out early next month, and I’ll be signing copies at the Burlington Book Festival on September 14th.
2. The Cybils blog is active again! If you’re a kid-lit blogger, consider volunteering as a panelist or judge for this year’s Children & YA Bloggers Literature Awards. I served as panelist for the Middle Grade Fiction category last year and loved every minute & every page.
3. Espresso Therapy Ice Cream is really, really good. (It it a testament to my self control that I stopped short of finishing the pint.)
