Why Jane Yolen Rocks:
If you have not been to Jane Yolen's online journal, well, you need to go.
She is awesome because she is so honest. She writes of her process, her ups, her downs, and amazingly, she does not flinch when writing in regards to rejections.
(Seriously, who in their right mind would reject a book submitted by Jane Yolen???)
But I guess it does happen. She wrote a great poem about it on her blog.
Captures it all, don't you think?
I love you, Jane.
(Owl Moon is my favorite, in case you wanted to know.)
Where I'll Be:
Tuesday, December 1st- Barnes and Nobel, Oceanside. 4-9 p.m.
This is a fundraiser for my school, Jefferson Elementary, in Carlsbad. B and N will donate 20-25% of money spent back to the school...in the form of books. How great is that? I will b e signing and doing storytimes at 5:30 and 7:30. If you are in San Diego's North County and feel like coming by, I'd love to meet you. (The photo on the top of the page was taken at last year's event.)
Saturday, December 5th- Del Mar Fairgrounds 2:00 p.m.
I'll be at the Head to Toe Women's Expo doing a reading and signing (I think I'm supposed to entertain kids while their mom's do spa-like things?) I have yet to find out where I'll be when I get there...I think it is with the Every One A Reader booth/area, but I will post more when I know more.
If you are in the area and come to either event, introduce yourself. I'll even tell you the secret of how not to sign a book (I can't post it here...wayyyyy to embarassing).
