Big week for my ocean poems! They started shipping on Wednesday, but are already being reprinted. Today I'm doing a story time/book launch at a very cool indie bookstore in Salt Lake City, The King's English. Trying to think how to present well to 6-year-olds and my elderly aunts, who will turn out in force to support me!
Meanwhile, I've done some interviews around the blog and gotten a few nice reviews, to boot. (There's a little overlap among the interviews, but I tried to say different things when possible!) Here are the links:
—Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast (Julie Danielson, also about Hans My Hedgehog)
—Jama's Alphabet Soup (Jama Rattigan)
—Cracking the Covers (Jessica Harrison; click here for a complete transcript)
—Paper Tigers (Marjorie)
Thanks very much to all those who hosted and interviewed me!
—Wall Street Journal (short but sweet!)
—Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Oh, and check out the seashell gallery I put up on my author's website.
Wish me luck today...
Update, 3/25: For those of you wondering why Amazon says "11 to 14 days" to ship WSB, it's because the first printing sold out and Chronicle is reprinting. (This is partly because B&N is going to use the book in a beach book display coming up soon, so they've ordered a lot of copies.)
Update, 3/27: Another starred review! This one's from Booklist. That makes three—hooray!
Update, 4/15: Take a look at this post in which Meilo and I interviewed each other for the Chronicle blog. Great pictures and stories from Meilo!
