I had a great trip to Florida and it was the first time I brought my netbook with me so I could write. I only used it on the plane ride to and from but I'm glad I did. I managed to work on several projects that I just couldn't find the time to do at home. Florida reminded me that it was one year earlier that I was sitting on the beach with my girlfriends writing limericks for my joke books. Today I received the cover scans for these two books that will be published in February of 2011.
I have so many fun activities planned for school visits with these.
So when I returned from Florida it was crazy getting everything ready for Thanksgiving dinner. That Friday I attended my 30th class reunion. I had a great time seeing everyone including our favorite principal.
I spent last Friday and Saturday at the New Jersey Association of School Librarians Conference in Long Branch. It was the first year I presented a session and I have to say it was a lot of fun. It was also nice catching up with all of my author friends and making new friends. I was tired after the two days I think mostly from watching all of the librarians race from session to session both days.
And now Christmas is just around the corner but I'm happy to say that thanks to the great deals on Amazon I was able to get most of my shopping done without having to drive all over the place. Speaking of Amazon, Amazon.com today announced that authors who use Amazon’s Author Central service (http://authorcentral.amazon.com
) can now view Nielsen BookScan’s weekly geographic sales data for their print books for free. I only looked at it briefly this morning but it looks like a great feature.
We all know that deadlines happen whether it's vacation time or the holidays. I'm working on completing the second three titles in my new series "I Love My Dog" which reminds me this cute little guy who is spending his first Christmas with our family
Merry Christmas and best wishes for continued success to everyone in the New Year!
I've been so busy I've found it hard to keep up my blogging, even just my Friday Five. So today, I'm catching up and posting the Friday Five or however many it takes to bring me up to speed.
