Taking a semi-sabbatical

Dear friends,

I’m at work on four books and have a full schedule this spring and summer. Something has to change, for now, if I’m to make my deadlines.


 Word of the Month Poetry Challenge continues without interruption.
 I’ll announce a revamped way to select month-end winners as soon as I figure out a good way.
 Friday blog guests will continue to appear as they file their articles with me. Some great ones are coming up soon.
Kathy Temean will continue to post my Poem of the Week.
 If you would like to do a guest blog this summer of 500 words or less about something of interest to writers and illustrators of children’s literature, please let me know. I’ll post one a week as they come in.
 If you want to post one of your poems, and include a picture, I’ll be glad to feature you. I’ll do one poem at a time but don’t mind featuring you more than once over the summer.
 This offer also applies to our young poets!

That’s it. I’ll continue to enjoy your comments and respond to them.

I’ll return in August on a more routine basis.

I wish you a wonderful spring/summer filled with good experiences and lots to write about or remember. Thank you all for visiting me here, for participating in my surveys, for posting your comments and advice and, most of all, for your warm reception to my first year’s efforts to learn about this blogging business.
