Pasta has been eating up a lot of my time as I’ve readied a couple of chapters for Saturday’s critique. So has life in general, interfering with my writing time in that bothersome way that life tends to do.
That’s why I’ve neglected a few things on the publicity front:
- The next Carnival of Children’s Literature. I missed the submissions deadline for this one.
- The 2007 Children’s Writer’s and Illustrator’s Market, which includes a mention of Bartography. I haven’t even gotten mineself to a bookstore yet to have a look.
- In her kind post about Joe Switzer’s birthday, Anne Bustard found this article about the recent-ish discovery of daylight fluorescence (think “Day-Glo”) naturally occurring in flowers. This is something I should know more about. Thank you, Anne.
If I can’t keep up with this stuff now, how am I going to manage when I’ve actually got a book on the shelves?
