Have I Told You Lately That I Love You?

It's been a sparse blogging few weeks, and I've realized once again that for me, the joy of blogging is y'all. I miss the interactions and conversations and the idea that even when we're not in direct communication, you are out there reacting in some way to what I'm sending out.

I don't miss the act of blogging or the blogger interface or the joy of pressing "publish." Nope. It's you!

So thank you for being out there. Things'll be picking up here again soon. And then, just as now, I'll so happy you're here with me.

Win a Copy of The Late Bird!

You can head over to this post at Jone's Check It Out blog and enter for a chance to win a copy of The Late Bird (my ebook of poetry). Plus you get to see my poem Doughnuts! Oh Doughnuts!

What's not to love, I ask you? What's not to love?

Hooray for the Cybils Winners!

Today is Cybils day - this year's winners have been announced!

I'm excited about the whole shebang but must give an extra cheer for Laura Purdie Salas and BookSpeak! - Poems About Books winning the poetry category. It's a great choice in a great poetry year....

Did I Really Say That?

Yes, I did! In fact, I said a whole bunch of stuff over in an interview at my friend Jone's blog.

Plus, as a heads up, there's a Late Bird giveaway coming up on Jone's blog later this week. Just sayin'.

Following the NYC SCBWI Conference....

Once again, the NYC SCBWI Conference is going on without me! What is with that???? Sigh.

Still, I'm following along via the handy, dandy, fab SCBWI Conference Blog and the tweets via the #ny13scbwi hashtag.

I wish I was there with all my friends and colleagues... but I'm grateful to everyone for their posting and tweeting. Thanks, y'all!
