Hi everyone,

I hope to finish one book and start another this week. I’m down to the last four poems for the book with my friends and co-authors, Tim Rasinski and Mary Jo Fresch. They’ll simmer for a while before getting their final polishing, then off they’ll go to T & MJ so they can add their brilliant work. Our deadline for this second book in the set is mid-August so we’re beating that by many weeks. I am about to have my first window in four months to get into some trade ideas.

Over the weekend I was telling Sandy I needed a sequel to something that’s already out there and just like that she handed me a fantastic idea! I need to think it through, get a proposal together, and click it on its way. If all goes well, I’ll get started on that late this week. I have a radio interview tomorrow and some travel time later in the week but I think I can do it.

Yeehaw. Happy Monday!
