First off, a huge congratulations to Shannon Messenger who just signed with my agent, Laura Rennert. I'm thrilled for Shannon! Head over and congratulate her!
It's a short week here with no school Friday and short days Wednesday and Thursday, so I'm going to cram as much writing as possible into today and tomorrow. I get to take a nice diversionary break to change a car battery, but I'm waiting for it to warm up a bit so my fingers don't go numb on me. Also, I'm going to be writing some scripts for our elementary school TV station to advertise the school's upcoming auction. How fun is that? And Friday will be all about planting those shrubs I was supposed to plant this past weekend. Where did the weekend go?
So in the meantime, here are some of the awesome reasons to live in Austin, Texas if you are an author:
Spending the day writing on Friday with K. A. Holt and E. Kristen Anderson (I managed to set the time and snake my way back into the booth before the flash went off)...
Dinner at Taco Cabana complete with Cerveza (my daughter declared this place "awesome, awesome, awesome")...
April's newest book is THE LESS DEAD and Varian's newest book is SAVING MADDIE.
Hope you guys all have a great week ahead!
