This morning at 9:00 EST I’ll join artist Kate Cosgrove in a virtual visit to The BookMark, a fine book store in Neptune, Florida. I look forward to the opportunity to talk about THE DIRT BOOK and see Kate again. The new book is off to a good start and I hope this will make a few folks in the Neptune area aware of it. Maybe I should write a sand book as a sequel. Have a good weekend.
Yesterday I heard from a journal editor in California inviting me to do a little tweaking on an article on poetry I submitted in May and send it back. I’m in a time crunch for now but hope to get back to that before long.
At Kate Cosgrove’s invitation I’m joining her for a virtual book talk in a Florida book store in August.
In October, Laura Robb and I are now booked to do a zoom tweet about our book, GUIDED PRACTICE FOR READING GROWTH, TEXTS AND LESSONS TO IMPROVE FLUENCY, COMPREHENSION, AND VOCABULARY, Grades 4-8.
A conference call set for tomorrow will determine the fate of a major project in the works. More about that tomorrow.
I checked Amazon this morning and discovered that THE DIRT BOOK has now been listed as the #1 new release for the third time. First was habitat and ecology; 2nd was in zoology; this third #1 is in disease. I guess that figures. Dirt is…well…dirty. In any event, I’m thrilled to see the range of interest in the new title.
I’m happy to say that THE DIRT BOOK opened in the Number One spot yesterday among new releases in children’s environment and ecology books. I’m truly delighted and want to thank you for your help in getting us off to such a great start.
