I know, I know! My fifth straight week of blog fail. BUT--the end is in sight. I turn this sucker in on Friday, ready or not. No, no. It will be ready. Promise.

I also have about a zillion things I want to blog about, but I just can't get to them. After this week, though, I will be able to get back to blogging MUCH more regularly. Pinkie swear.

I was asked to write a Letter To My Younger Self over on Anna Staniszewski's blog. It's advice I would like to have given myself when I was just starting out on my writer's journey. She has a great series of these letters she's running, so be sure and check them all out.

I also have a couple of news tidbits that I don't think I've shared here yet. (And if I have, forgive me. Deadline Brain!)  The third Nathaniel Fludd book, The Wyvern's Treasure, was selected as a Junior Library Guild selection, which thrills me no end! That's three for three with this series so far. ::squee::

Also, the first Nathaniel Fludd book, The Flight of the Phoenix, is going to be in Scholastic Book Fairs! I'm am so excited about this because those book fairs and order forms were some of my kids favorite ways to acquire new books. I love the idea that my books will be part of such a time-honored book buying tradition.

Aaaand, that's all I got! Until next week!

Congrats on the Guild selection and the Flight of the Phoenix news! I myself love checking out the book fair and seeing all those new books on the shelves. And I can't wait to see the fourth Theodosia!

Fantastic news, Robin! You really hit it out of the ball park with Nathaniel Fludd. It will be fun to see him at the school book fair.

Thank you, anonymous! Theo Four will be out in only ::counting on fingers:: eight more months!

Vonna, I have been hugely lucky with how well young Nate Fludd has been recieved!

Thanks, Mel!

And I promise, now that my deadline is over, I will be MUCH better about responding to comments. Geez. And blogging in general...
