Good News!

I've been offered another opportunity to write for Capstone! I'm so excited! I was a bit nervous that the reason the other book was pulled was because of something sub par about my writing, but apparently these things happen. Hopefully that book will see the light of day at some point.

In the meantime, I've been offered a chance to work on a new project. It's a book about astrology for middle grade girls. My focus is on the Earth signs -- Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn. Not sure yet where my research will take me, and I'm waiting to read the sample books.

Stay tuned!

Bad News

I just heard from my editor at Capstone. Unfortunately, the Racing for History series has been pulled from their list indefinitely. They hope to bring the set back on a future list, but for now, my book - which was part of that series - is on hold.

I had a great experience writing this book, as most of you know! I'm hoping to have another chance to work with Capstone.

In the meantime, just keep swimming, right? I'm going to the NESCBWI conference in April (New England Society for Children's Book Writing and Illustrating), and I have a critique lined up for a picture book that I'm working on.

Oh well.

Golfer Girl Magazine available

Some of you have asked me where you can get Golfer Girl magazine. I just heard from the editor (Claude Hooton), who says:

Unfortunately, we have had difficulty with getting distribution at the news stands due to our small size. We do sell individual copies of the magazine for the cover price + $1.85 shipping."

So, if you're really interested in checking it out (thanks, Gary for checking out THREE news stands for me!!!) - you can get it directly from them.

Thanks so much for all your support and encouragement! I'm trying to figure out a way to post the story somewhere so people can read it online. I'll keep you updated!
