Fan Art Friday (sort of)

February 28th, 2014

Something a little different this time around — a peek at a Mother-Daughter Book Club themed birthday party!  Ingredients include:

1. Friends (of course)

Book club 4

2. Fun table decorations (I love this idea!)

Book club party 2
3. More decorations (everyone brought something representing their favorite character–so clever!)

Book club 5

4. A fun party game (MDBC trivia — I want to play!)

Book club 3

And finally, a gorgeous thank you card for the author, who provided a brief video greeting and autographed bookmarks for the guests…

Book Club party 1

(The photo did double duty on the party invitations, too — cute, right?)

Thank you, Katie, for sharing this with us all!  And once again, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Are you out there?

I’ve been working on answering snail mail and email recently, and there are a number of you who changed email addresses or gave me incorrect addresses, or didn’t include addresses at all.

This always makes me sad, because I know you’re eagerly awaiting a response, and there’s no way I can send you one.

So, if you see your name here on this list, please leave a comment and I’ll get in touch with you for your correct address, OK?

Gracie (aandechute)
Abby (last name Burns, maybe?)
Ann (annnamey)
Daysa Lewis
Molly (philliesmm)
Laura Winkler
Margaret Harper
Chiara (last name Morley, maybe?)
Denise Espinosa
Sarah Robert

Whew!  Long list this time.  Moral of the story:  check and double-check that you’ve included a return address on your snail mail, and that the email addresses you provide when you contact me are 100% accurate!

Cover reveal #2

February 10th, 2014

Over the past few days, Portland was finally treated to a blast of the winter that everyone else has been having. My husband and I have been snowed in here at home, which is so unusual for this part of Oregon, and SO FUN! Especially with the Olympics to watch on TV, and lots of hot chocolate to keep us warm.

Thanks to the weather, I decided that today is the perfect time to reveal the cover for the second book I have coming out later this year. (Click here to read about the other one.) Are you ready?


It’s so beautiful I want to cry!  Bagram Ibatoulline is an amazing artist, an INCREDIBLE artist, and Simon & Schuster has given me an enormous gift by choosing him as the illustrator for this picture book.

Wait until you see his artwork–the pages look like they’re lit from within. I truly can’t wait until this one hits the shelves next fall!
