Here it is another week, another month. Spring break for the students in our area is over. It's back to school and countdown until the next holiday. How well I remember my teaching days and looking forward to the breaks. Now I'm on break all the time and never get caught up. Sometimes I wonder how I managed to work, write, and do the household chores. You writers with children at home have my admiration. You must be very well organized to find time for everything.
Today I'd like to share a bit about my forthcoming book for MG
readers. It's a long story with a happy ending. Way back in 2006 I sent the
manuscript to a wonderful publisher and they wanted to publish my story. Great!
I was excited. Unfortunately, the publisher went out of business. Not that I
wish the former publisher bad thoughts, they are really nice, nice people, but I
think life works in mysterious ways, for I now have a super publisher helping me
get the story in tip-top shape. It has undergone edits, been changed from
readers ages 7-10 to the 8-12 age group, many corrections, including the
title, made, and is a much better story now. The manuscript is now awaiting copy edits and a cover. Crossing my fingers it's good to
Watch for STAR OF THE TEAM coming out hopefully this summer. A huge
thank you to Vivian Zabel and Harry Gilleland at 4 RV Publishing for your faith
in my story. And for Aidana WillowRaven who will see that it has the perfect
cover. 4 RV Publishing rocks. Hope to have a cover to show you soon.
