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.
