Home again and ready for a week of writing. I have only one, brief meeting out of the house all week so I plan to be a hermit. I enjoyed NCTE as always, met a lot of people, signed books, presented, and ate good food. On the way out of town we drove by the Jewel Box but it was closed for a wedding party. We then drove to the Arch for a quick picture as we left town.
No writing for a couple of days while I’m at NCTE. This morning I’m having breakfast at 7:30 with an editor and won’t finish the day’s activities until 8:00 or so this evening. It’s a good trade off though. I always enjoy seeing old friends and having a chance to participate in the conference.
My new title with Boyds Mills Press, CRAWLY SCHOOL FOR BUGS, doesn’t come out until March, but they have some folded and gathered copies here and I’ll be signing a stack of those tomorrow. I’m eager to see them.
