Holly Cupala's amazing debut novel yesterday (check out her rockin' website--lots of great swag)! Here's how it happened: When Holly arrived at the SCBWI meeting on Tuesday night, she had just received some copies of the 17-page "sneak preview" of TELL ME A SECRET from her publisher and I snagged one (check out cute pic of me and Holly with the bookie). Reading it was the carrot I dangled in front of myself as I was trying to reach my 1,500 word goal for the day (don't always set the bar that high but I was feeling energetic). Alas, I only finished my pages in time to head out to pick up four boys from three different schools and haul them all to a two-hour track meet :)
Next post, on Friday, will be about School & Library author visits. Promise!
