I'm honored to be featured on Jody Casella's blog today, talking about my latest book. A sample from the post: "I found that the most difficult part of being an author was not creating stories, difficult as that was. It was staying emotionally grounded. It was having the self-confidence to keep writing."
And I'm honored that this book is featured in the SCBWI Bulletin, courtesy of Cynthia (of the blog "Read is the New Black"), who reviewed Loner in the Garret.
It's especially nice because Loner in the Garret
is about finding emotional support in this solitary pursuit called
writing, and in the fickle business of publishing. This book was based
on the kinds of encouraging messages I exchange with writer friends. I'm
lucky to have this community.
Speaking of community: if you're anywhere near Haverford, PA, then stop by the Author/Illustrator Night at Children's Book World
(17 Haverford Station Road) on Friday, November 6, at 8 PM. There will
be more than two dozen writers and illustrators, mingling with readers
in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere.
