So maybe you've been curious about the icon in my upper right hand corner...
I wanted to let you guys know about a great groups of authors I'm part of, The Texas Sweethearts. The group is made up of three kids' authors from Austin: PJ Hoover (me), Jessica Lee Anderson, and Jo Whittemore. Our aim is to reach out to lovers of reading of all ages.
To read more about us, please head over and check out:

The Texas Sweethearts blog
(btw, please follow us on our blog! No, there are no prizes or contests, but you'd have our gratitude forever.)
Here's a video (designed by yours truly, no less), trying to give an idea of what The Texas Sweethearts are all about.
You can also become a fan of The Texas Sweethearts on Facebook (please!).
A couple times a month, we're going to be featuring sweethearts from the kidlit world—people who have made a true difference for others. We're taking nominations for these featured sweethearts, so if you know of someone, maybe a favorite librarian or blogger who truly makes a difference, please email us and let us know. We'll round them up each Friday and feature an interview every other week.
So don't be shy! Nominate someone today!
And a final note: We have available a critique by all three TEXAS SWEETHEARTS authors up for auction in the newest Bridget Zinn auction. Three sets of eyes. Three separate opinions. Bid until Dec. 11, 2009.
