Exciting Things: Week of 5/12

Lots of EXCITEMENT this week!

1. STEERING TOWARD NORMAL by my pub sister, Rebecca Petruck, is out now! This book is hilarious and heartfelt – my favorite combination. EXCITEMENT!


2. Another debut is out this week as well: Kate Hannigan’s CUPCAKE COUSINS! I am ridiculously proud of this thing I made for it:

3. My local library is the best library in the nation, I’m pretty sure. Not only did they host a talk with Sharon M. Draper yesterday (which was fantastic), they’re also giving out personalized reading lists to card-holders. Of course I signed up for one. I’ll let you know how it turned out! Multnomah County Library can’t be beat! EXCITEMENT!

4. I’m attending my first SCBWI conference this weekend, woo-hoo! I hope to learn some good stuff and get a lot of doodling done. EXCITEMENT!
