Things are a bit crazy this week, since I’m only in the office for two days before running off to chaperone my son’s class trip to St. Augustine.  Many sixth graders, one bus.  Wish me luck!  Before I run off, some congratulations are in order:

To Rob Thurman for hitting #21 on the New York Times paperback list last week with her latest hard-hitting Cal Leandros novel, DOUBLETAKE. (See excerpt and video.)

To Amy Christine Parker, whose debut novel and subsequent book, we’ve sold to Random House Children’s at auction (see Publishers Weekly report).  THE SILO is tentatively set for release in Fall 2012.  It’s truly not to be missed!

To Kira Sinclair for the release of her latest Island Nights novel, RUB IT IN, just out today!

To Faith Hunter, whose Jane Yellowrock novel RAVEN CURSED is an Audible All-Star, Top 20 Book for the season.

Other news:

I’m over at Magical Words today talking about creating characters.

My events for the next couple months:

this Saturday, March 24 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Third Annual Local Author Fair, Land O Lakes Library, FL

April 6-8 Marcon 47 in Columbus, OH

April 11-15 Romantic Times Convention, Chicago, IL

    If you get the chance, check out Flagler College. It’s absolutely beautiful. If you take the tour, which I recommend, keep your eye out for a favorite painting of mine. It’s hanging in the ladies parlor on the 2nd floor which is also home to an incredible white onyx clock that is worth seeing. The painting is called Still Waters. Enjoy!

    • Adam, I agree – Flagler College is gorgeous. I’ve never taken the tour, but author Nancy Haddock was amazing enough to take me around when I was out there for a conference. If I get the chance, I’ll be on the look-out for the painting. Thanks for the tip!

    So jealous–about the St. Augustine part—the bus not so much. Hope you have fun hanging out with your son. And the weather couldn’t be better for it!

  3. Congrats! Lots of great news.

    Hope you and Ty have a blast. Should be interesting 🙂 Oh, the day I look frwd to chaperone when my son gets older. I really can’t wait! It’s the kid in me. It’s probably the reason why I love to write YA so much. LOL

    Have fun!
