Happy Day!

I woke up this morning feeling like it was Christmas. Why? Because my new book comes out today! The funny thing is, it's mostly an ordinary day--no tickertape parade, no lavish party, not even a singing telegram or a bouquet of roses like after a ballerina performs.

I think I'll just stop by the bookstore and visit my baby and smile like a lunatic for a few minutes...

Then I'll come home and work on revising my next book.

Update: Author KC Dyer has her character Darby interview my character Meg here. I will be interviewed on The Enchanted Inkpot on September 9.

Snoopy dance! Our library's copy hasn't arrived yet. Of course, it won't go out on the shelf right away - it's going home with me first and I'm so excited to read it!

Thanks, Jennifer! I was wondering what the bookstore clerks would do if I did the Snoopy dance over there, right in the middle of the children's section. :)

Sorry I missed this one in my first new releases post of September--so I have put it in today's list. Congrats. again!

Charlotte--Thanks! I feel sort of dense that I didn't do anything resembling a book launch, so I appreciate the shout-out. (To tell you the truth, I'm basically lost in space, writing a new book!)
