Cool Stuff!

Good Monday Morning, Everyone!

On Thursday, I'm headed to Salt Lake City for the 2011 LDStorymakers Conference at the gorgeous Sheraton Hotel -AND the Whitney Award Banquet where I'll find out if I'm the winner for the Youth Fiction category. (THRILLED to be a Finalist!!!)

Working like crazy on my deadline for my 2012 novel before I leave for 5 days (hoping to write in the car while hubby drives, but we'll see how *that* goes!), but I wanted to mention a few very cool things.

First you gotta check out FROM THE MIXED-UP FILES . . . OF MIDDLE-GRADE AUTHORS! We're giving away a couple dozen FREE SKYPE Author visits over the next year. I'll be doing my first Skype Author Visit (learning the ropes). So please enter or spread the word. More details are coming soon!

And the FIRST CATCH THE BUS WINNERS will be announced tomorrow so please read and see if you are a winner!

We even have a very cool video!

And here's a full press release!
Last thing for today before I'm off with my laptop to my secluded writing room given to me by a very kind friend . . . well, after I shower and stuff my face with some food to fortify myself for the day . . . I love this article about Independent Bookstores. Why Brick and Mortar still Rules the World.

I won't be able to go this year, but don't let that stop you from having a blast. If you feel up to it, I'd love to hear what went on later. :)

Wow! Have a great time! That sounds awesome!

Donna Weaver said...

No pressure ... and good luck. I'm heading that way myself. Maybe I'll see you.

Hey, thank you, David, Colene and Donna.

Hopefully I'll see you, too, Donna!

And yep, David, I'll post some highlights next week!
