Fireseed One just won a Wishing Shelf Bronze Book Award! The Wishing Shelf Award is a unique one because it's decided in large part by high school students. Students in the UK and Sweden voted for their favorite books. A big thanks to these participating schools: Worsley Bridge Primary School, Rokesly Junior School, Montpelier Primary School, Meadlands Primary School, St George the Martyr Primary School, Gainsborough Primary School, Gospel Oak Primary School, Mossfrd Green Primary School & Pelham Primary School.
I will teach Writing and Publishing Teen Fiction at the Philadelphia Writers' Conference on June 7, 8 & 9. This is always a fun and informative event, located in Philly's historic old city, near the Ben Franklin Museum and the Liberty Bell. For more details and info on registration, click here.
The cover for Ruby's Fire is officially done! Xpresso Tours is setting up a cover reveal blitz. I will have a book launch in June (and a tour with Xpresso in July and Aug). There will be a sign up for anyone who wants to help celebrate. Stay tuned. I will also be featuring the cover artist Jay Montgomery on Idea City.
Tomorrow, I'll have a left knee replacement. Yipes! I did way too many step aerobics classes, and jumped up on way too many high risers. No cartilage left. So, if it takes me a couple days to get back online, you'll know why. A heads-up to those who are jumping on pogo sticks, and rollerblading or running on hard asphalt--protect your knees.
Mad love for the online community, and for those indie authors and book bloggers who have already blurbed Ruby's Fire. Thank you!
