It's been a long time since I posted here and many things have changed. I received my first contract for a Christian children's picture book from Guardian Angel Publishing
. The Little Shepherd Boy
should be out in the late fall of 2010.
In addition, I recently took over the reins of Editor of Musing Our Children's
quarterly newsletter Pages & Pens
. The Summer 2009
issue was recently released, but due to some technical difficulties we could not post it to the website. If you would like a copy of the newsletter, which features articles on exploring Massachusetts, Laura Ingalls Wilder and poetry by Peggy Fieland, in addition to many new sections, please email me at cg20pm00(at)gmail(dot)com--replacing the words "at" and "dot" with the appropriate symbols, and I will send you a copy. Please put "Pages and Pens" on the subject line.
If you are interested in joining Musing Our Children--a group of writers, illustrators, editors and storytellers dedicated to encouraging a love of reading and writing in young people--please visit the Musing Our Children Yahoo Group
I continue my work as a virtual book tour coordinator for Pump Up Your Book Promotion
. We are always on the lookout for new and interesting blogs to host our clients. You can reach me at cg20pm00(at)gmail(dot)com--replacing the words "at" and "dot" with the appropriate symbols, if you are interested in being considered as a virtual book tour host. Please place "I want to be a VBT host" on the subject line.
I recently started a new blog on WordPress. The Kids Book Connection
will feature book reviews, guest posts and author interviews for children's, middle grade, young adult and teen fiction. We will also feature the occasional review of a parenting book.
I think that's all for now. I hope you enjoy the rest of your summer!
All my best,
