Late July News

July 24, 2012 @ 9:15 am | Filed under: Author stuff, Books

I know, I know, I’ve been AWOL! When’s the last time I went a week without posting here? (I know when: summer of 2005, when Wonderboy had surgery. Yeesh.) Well, my absence here is because I’m plugging away elsewhere…sometimes the supply of words is limited, you know? πŸ™‚

But a few bits of news:

β€’ A new strip at Into the Thicklebit

β€’ A lovely Kirkus review of my friend Anne Marie Pace’s about-to-launch picture book, Vampirina Ballerina, illustrated by the talented LeUyen Pham.

β€’ Vampirina shares a pub date (August 7) with my early reader, Fox and Crow Are Not Friends. It got a nice review at Kirkus, too (yippee!), which is now viewable by everyone, not just subscribers. πŸ™‚

β€’ This month, my upcoming Inch and Roly series gets the spotlight at the Ready-to-Read website, including a letter from me to readers. Whee!

  1. Hey, that’s me!

    Congrats on your lovely review from Kirkus for FOX! (Does Crow get mad if I just say FOX? Should I switch to FACANF?)

  2. I love LeUyen Pham’s illustrations! We own some Alvin Ho, Bedtime for Mommy, and Freckleface Strawberry books she has done. I just adore her style.
