January 19, 2009 Martin Luther King Jr's Birthday
The news around here seems to be the bitter cold snap -20 the other morning and then the unexpected snowfall yesterday kept us wondering if it was ever going to stop. The possibility of 1-3 inches was predicted, but we ended up with a foot or more. Excellent writing weather though, and I'm happily digging into my YA today. I met with a couple of writer friends on Saturday and they are wonderful cheerleaders. You may know K.L.Going's YA books, but if not, check out Saint Iggy or Fat Kid Rules the World at http://www.amazon.com/ or the library or your favorite bookstore.
The Borders Bookstore in Dickson City (Scranton, PA) has tentatively set a date for a book signing of February 7th. The release date of the new book, Secrets of Greymoor, http://www.candlewickpress.com is officially Feb 10, but Borders' computers say January 27th. So I'll keep you posted when I know for sure if they can get the book by the 7th.
Here's something to think about when you sit down to write. "Write what should not be forgotten." Wish I could recall where I came across that bit, but I don't.
I'll post more about events soon.
