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.
Here’s a shot of the Las Vegas Marathon while we were there. I heard that it involved 35,000 runners.
At NCTE I’m sorry to say that I didn’t get any pictures but Linda Baie was kind enough to take one of Sandy and me and someone else took a picture of Georgia Heard and Laura Purdie Salas with me at breakfast. Do I know how to pick glamorous women or what!
