I added a lot of words to my WIP.
Took the bike out of winter storage and got some exercise.
Skyped with a middle school book club in Georgia.
Found out I was voted first runner-up for a Mock Newbery by the middle school students in Troy, Michigan. (Came in behind Holly Black & Cassandra Clare and ahead of Neal Shusterman. Woot!)
Made it onto a prestigious Florida state list!
Cleaned out a messy spare room and transformed it into a guest room for our cat, Luna. Just kidding. She only thinks it’s hers. This is for a foreign exchange student we’ll be hosting this summer.
Cheered on my husband as he assembled and installed these shelves, including cutting the crown molding himself, nailing it in, and staining it to match the shelves. Then I put the books in.
Presented at the Pennsylvania School Librarian’s Conference with the KidLit Author Club
Went to NYC to be on a panel at Books of Wonder with Michael Northrop, Paul Durham, Matt Myklusch, and Josh Lieb
PHEW! How did you spend the last month?
