Guess what, guys? I joined the Lucky 13s! It's a group of authors who are all debuting in 2013. I joined them a couple of months ago, and it has been amazing to be able to chat with people who are all going through the same things. (If you have a debut book deal but your book isn't out yet, or if you're looking forward to that point in the future, definitely think about joining a group blog. They're an unbelievable support!)
Today is my very first day posting on the blog, where I've managed to completely twist and bend this week's theme. It's supposed to be "Dinner with our characters: What's on the menu in our books?" yet I somehow turned it into the "Girth of the First Draft."
If you haven't already become a follower of the Luckies blog, I'd definitely recommend it. It hosts over 50 amazing authors of kidlit in so many different genres! It's worth it. I swear.
I write action / adventure books for middle grade readers, and I'm represented by Sara Crowe of Pippin Properties. I have two books released-- SKY JUMPERS and THE FORBIDDEN FLATS (both action / adventure, for ages 8 and up, with Random House Children's Books). I love happy kids even more than I love cookies, I make lists as often as I eat lunch, and I love having every light in the house on almost as much as I love writing.
