Happy Friday! Here's my five for the week.
1) Super thank you to all those who chimed in on the son/parent book club. It seems some exist, but nowhere near the number as daughters. Thank you to those who vow to start them! And thank you to those who mentioned the blog post.
Let's get this thing viral!
2) I love this picture of my critique partner's son reading an ARC of THE NAVEL OF THE WORLD.
3) Read recently:
INCARCERON by Catherine Fisher - This was an ARC my editor lent me. The more I think about it, the more I like it. It almost reminded me of an adult fantasy (as far as the feel of it goes). I'm already looking forward to the sequel, and the best part is that since it's a book that was published in the UK, the sequel is something I can get my hands on :)
A CROOKED KIND OF PERFECT by Linda Urban - A cute, fun, realistic comedy for later elementary and middle school kids.
THE TALES OF BEEDLE THE BARD by J. K. Rowling - Die-hard Harry Potter fans will enjoy this.
*Note that the best thing about this title is my son checked it out from the library for me.
4) Sneak peak of t-shirt design for THE NAVEL OF THE WORLD.
5) I'm looking forward to a writing weekend! Tomorrow is the Vermont College of Fine Arts Writing Workshop in the Lone Star State! I plan to come out of it totally awed and inspired after learning from Kathi Appelt and Sharon Darrow all day!
I hope everyone has a great weekend!
