What am I waiting for? (11/06)

Half a year since I last posted about this, I’m still waiting for more things than I’m working on. Including:

My first glimpse of the art for The Day-Glo Brothers.

News from editors about several manuscripts:

  • My biographies of James (picture book) and Smith (middle grade), which are both with the same editor. This editor gets them, I think, but there’s a big difference between “gets” and “buys.”
  • My middle grade novel, Arbor.
  • My proposal and sample chapters for Pasta.
  • My picture book/graphic novel series P.O.

Copies of the books nominated for the Nonfiction Picture Book category of the Cybils.

The next big industry/literary event I plan to attend: the Texas Library Association annual conference in San Antonio in April.

Next summer, when — a year before The Day-Glo Brothers‘ publication date — I’ll get cracking on a full-fledged web site, curriculum guides, and whatnot.

  1. Chris,

    I just stumbled by and thought I would say hello. You may recall a year or so ago I reviewed the Day-Glo book for technical accuracy, mostly fluorescence theory. I was just thinking about when I would receive my copy, and I ended up here.

    I’m sorry to see it is still so far from publication. And I thought the technical journals I deal with were slow! Still, I look forward to seeing it in print.
