1) Priceless photo of Linda Joy Singleton, Me, and Stacy Nyikos doing the Star Wars thing at CLA. I want hair like Senator Amidala.
2) The door on my son's classroom. They drew their favorite books. Yes, the second photo is a close-up of...you guessed it...The Emerald Tablet. Love that boy!
3) The Emerald Tablet has made the Tri State Young Adult Review Committee Books of Note list for 2009! Not only that, it will be included in the Pennsylvania State Librarians Conference in May! I'm so excited for The Emerald Tablet!
4) Thank you Marvell for such a wonderful book signing event today! You guys rock and design the best chips around, even with the memory controller and GCU and MVED. Thanks for bringing back all those wonderful memories, thanks for buying books, and thanks for the giant cookie!
I miss you all!!!!!
5) Extra special shout out to my critique group member, Christine Marciniak, who got the cover of her fab book which is due out in 2009, When Mike Kissed Emma. I love this cover and cannot wait to own it.
6) A quick and delightful read. I picked this up at the school library while volunteering on Wednesday and finished it that night. Coraline by Neil Gaiman. I highly recommend this book! Fun, fast, haunting, creepy, and really, really good!
7) If you live in Austin, please come by the Sunset Valley Barnes & Noble on Saturday between 2-4. I'll be signing copies of The Emerald Tablet along with Stacy Nyikos who will be signing her brand new book Dragon Wishes (which BTW I read and loved). See you there!
Yes, I know that's seven, but they were brief, fun, and on my mind!
Hope everyone has a great weekend! I'll post about NCTE and the book signing on Monday!
