BookPeople were fabulous hosts for the joint book release party with Jessica Lee Anderson. We had a fabulous time! Thank you so much to everyone who came out to see us! A book party is a really special day, and I am so fortunate to have so many wonderful people I consider friends to celebrate with.
Like, look - Jody Feldman, author of THE GOLLYWHOPPER GAMES, came all the way from Missouri for the party. (okay, so she was in San Antonio for school visits - it was still a drive.)
I've posted more pics over on the Forgotten Worlds Facebook Fan Page in case you want to buzz over and check them out!
But one last pic. Check out the copies of my book!
*Note - If you want a signed copy and didn't make the party, BookPeople has them in stock.
In other news, I'm quoted in our Austin Newspaper, the Austin American Statesmen, on my thoughts on WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE. Here's the link. I say:
"WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE was the book I always wanted to own. Teachers and librarians read it to me in the class and the library, but for some reason beyond me, it never made its way to my home. It was like an adventure book I always wanted to be a part of. So guess what? As soon as I had kids, I ran to the bookstore and bought it. And read it. And loved it. But I always thought it was longer."
Monday I am going to be interviewed on Book Bites for Kids. Here's the link. It's at 2:00 Central Time on Monday, October 19, 2009. Listen in!
Check out Beth Revis's blog this week! She's giving away a copy of THE EMERALD TABLET and THE NAVEL OF THE WORLD. In addition, she'll be gathering interview questions from blog readers to ask me. So pop over and put forth a question!
And here's one final picture of Team "Nogicals Rule". Wonder what a Nogical is? Read THE EMERALD TABLET to find out!
Hope everyone has a great week!
