What's going on? August News

I’m working at my husband’s office this summer.

I’m working at my husband’s office this summer.

Hope you’re having a good summer!

To recap what I’ve been doing lately: I’m working on a three-book series called SKUNK & BADGER (to be illustrated by Jon Klassen). SKUNK & BADGER (Book one) will come out in Fall 2020, published by Algonquin Young Readers. The series has sold some foreign rights (very exciting!) and as soon as all the contracts have been signed, I’ll pass that information along. (I REALLY want to tell you, but can’t yet.) Also, English rights have been sold in Canada, UK and Australia/New Zealand.

Done last month? Continued work on Book Two. It’s coming along steadily. AND — drum roll — I found a title for Book Two! WhooHOO! I want to share it, but I don’t dare do it because titles change so often in the book-making process. STILL, it’s causing me to do little dances around the house and making me grin. I think you’ll like it, particularly when you know Skunk & Badger.

To do next month? Keep my head down — more Book Two work to do.

AND I just found out I’ll be at the Texas Library Association Conference in Houston in March 2020. It’s my first time. If you’re going, find me and say hello. I’d love to meet!

Stay cool everyone and read some good books!
