Just maybe . . .

Hi everyone,


Jane Yolen
and I got a pretty strong nibble yesterday on one of our books. Too early for the happy dance, but we should know before long. Our industry is famous for false alarms but it’s always fun to cross those fingers and believe it could happen this time.

  2. Rum, pum, pum,
    We write the lines.
    We’re both sure
    they’re mighty fine!

    Rum, pum, pum,
    We wait and pray,
    Hoping for a
    book someday!

    Rum, pum, pum,
    Please wait with us!
    Hope there’ll be
    A happy fuss!

    • Yes! Please come march with us! Actually, Rum Pum Pum is the title of a book Jane and I placed with Holiday House. No pub date yet but hopefully it’s turn will come before long. By the way, it’s another example of a book that started here on the blog.

    • Rum, pum, pum,
      We know the ropes.
      We are the experts,
      Not the dopes.

      Rejections come,
      rejectors go,
      but H&Y
      rake in the dough!

      We shrug the worst,
      hope for the best.
      We have no worries
      for the rest.

      We sing the songs.
      We beat the drum.
      And as for fame–
      Well: rum, pum, pum!

      xxxJane
