While Cynsations is Out of the Office . . . Friday Links!

One of my favorite writers, bloggers, and friends is on Summer hiatus from her site/blog Cynsations. Yes, THE Cynthia Leitich Smith! A wonder of a woman, a wonder of a writer, and a wonderful friend to all writers and authors in the children's lit world. Cyn does an amazing Friday round-up of Links and News for Writers and while I can't even BEGIN to do what she does, here are a few links from blogs/articles that I've particularly enjoyed the past month or two.

Hi Emmy,

Thank you so much for writing! I love hearing that my book is your #1 favorite - wow! I'll go check out your blog.

Hope you get a chance to read my other books, too. They take place in the same world as BUTTERFLIES and have lots of fun mysteries and secrets . . . :-)
