News and Upcoming Conference

My big news is I'm super excited to be a part of the new Skyscape imprint at Amazon Children's Publishing. For more details, you can check here where it was announced on Publisher's Weekly.

Tomorrow, I'll be flying out to New York City. It's going to be a whirlwind trip and I can only imagine how cold it will be. But I can't wait!

Friday my plans include meeting my editor, Miriam Frank, and all the amazing people at Skyscape. I'll be having lunch with my agent, whom I'm so excited to finally meet him in person. That night I'll be meeting a bunch of the OneFour members, a group of debut authors for 2014 that I recently joined.

Saturday and Sunday will be packed with the SCBWI conference as well as meeting the Lucky13s for lunch and Blueboarders for drinks.



But what I'm really excited about is hanging out with the MiGs all weekend. We promised each other two years ago to do this conference. At that time, I didn't have an agent or a book deal, but I knew I was committed to our group and to making this dream of mine to get published a reality. And now it is. Kind of wild and exciting all mixed together.

I'm sure after the weekend is finished I'll crash. I'm planning on taking plenty of pictures which I'll post next week. If I don't freeze to death in the meantime!

Enjoy the conference. I wanted to see Julie Andrews, but the workshops were of no value to me, so I changed my mind about going.

This sounds like so much fun! Hope you have a wonderful time! And I'm hoping to "read all about it"!

You will have a smashing weekend! Don't freeze -- I'll lend you my big fat winter coat from WA ...

Tez- I know. It's so hard to wait!

Kim- I'll make sure I spill all kinds of juicy details.

Stina- I know, Julie Andrews is amazing. I'm so excited.

Vijaya- Yes! I need a big coat. It was 82 degrees here in Florida.

Casey- I can't wait. I can hardly sleep I'm so excited.

It doesn't matter if it's cold, it's NEW YORK!
