"Whoa, what was that speeding thing?"
Pink Sponge=August; The Boy=Me
- The Boy goes back to school in six days. I cannot, cannot believe summer is over. We've been trying to make the most of the days we have left. Last week, we hit the toy store and spent his birthday money. Yesterday, we went to the park and rode the paddle boats, got a sno-cone and then went to the book store to pick up the fourth Leven Thumps book. Sadly, they did not have Catching Fire for me.
- I'm ever-so-vainly going to repost this comment Amie left a couple topics ago. Amie won the advance copy of The Iron Bodkin. I shipped it off last week and, being a total angel, she read it right away then commented: "oh. my. gawsh! srsly. a great, great, story!! i loved Lux. i loved the voice. i loved the plot. if i could describe this book in one word, it would be this: BESTSELLER." [giggle] bestseller--oh how I wish! How awesome is she to say such nice things?! She is a chaos of awesomeness, that's how much! Totally. You should follow her here.
- I shipped the manuscript of Gods & Vultures off to my mentor, Susan Hart Lindquist, and I bought my plane ticket to Virginia City for the Nevada SCBWI conference. The mentor program will kick off in Oct and run through April. I'm super excited!
