Yes, I’m aware that a long interval has elapsed between posts. Noteworthy things went on in my literary life. One was the book launch for Laurie Wallmark’s picture book biography, Ada Byron Lovelace and the Thinking Machine at The Book Garden in Frenchtown, NJ.
Another was attending KidLitCon2015, my first, and spending an October weekend hanging out in Baltimore with librarians, bloggers, authors and others as passionate about children’s books as I am. In November, I managed to find out about and attend an amazing, diversity-focused small conference called “Telling the Story of All of Us,” presented by Rosemont College and Children’s Book World,
I still hope to write about all of these. But I have a good reason—or at least a good excuse—for not having done it yet: a forthcoming book!!! I’ve been working (with an editor!) on a new picture book. I’ve recently signed and sent in a contract, and planned publication is fall, 2016. I’m bursting to share more about it, and just waiting for the go-ahead from the publisher. Stay tuned.
