I've also been busy reading this book:
Those of you who know me in real life are laughing right now. I can hear you through the screen. Yes, I know, it is probably impossible to make someone who has spent the majority of her life in a state of constant clutter a neat-nick. Probably. But maybe, just maybe...
(Actually, I've gone through my clothes and discarded tons of things and I've had a clean closet for 72 hours now. That, my friends, is an all time record for me!)
And I read this to my class:
I highly recommend it. Days and DAYS after I read it with them, students were still bombarding me with theories about the ending. I won't spoil it for you, but if you are a teacher and you haven't read this to your class, you must. If you are a student, no matter your age, read it and share it with your classmates. Then let the debates begin!
I am also writing some things. I got a new idea for a picture book which is always like a special treat. I finished a middle-grade science-fiction novel that I have been working on for quite some time. I need to get some eyes other than mine to read it now. But it is scary because, well, I am a chicken and this is different from other things I have done. But writers must be brave, everyone knows that.
And, as I already mentioned, this is happening in just a few weeks:
And I happen to know for a fact that a trailer is coming soon, too! Yay.
And I got to see the cover for SECRETS OF SELKIE BAY (my novel that comes out in July) and all I can tell you is that whatever you are thinking it looks like, you are probably wrong. I was. (But in a good way!) Hopefully I can show it soon.
Take care, my friends. Keep writing
