Andrea of The Little BookWorm
Yay! Congratulations Andrea. Enjoy! And if you need more more convincing to check out this book. Go visit Daisy's blog where she has some fabulous Mockingbird videos up - sure to intrigue!
In other news Disney was magical.
I don't mind a world where trolley buses pull up and people leap out and perform a song for you. I could do with more of it.
Also the DREAM song is everywhere (not sure if that is what it's called but I'm sure you know it) . I think I may make it my NaNoWriMo anthem. Cheesy? Yes, but oddly inspiring too.
Magical as Disney was it was nothing compared to Harry Potter's Wizarding World.
and mummm butterbeer.
Harry, I have missed you!
The SCBWI conference was also pretty amazing. I adored Lisa Yee's speech and must find some of her books. The other panel's were fabulous too. And Emily Van Beek was there, she is Erin Bow's agent. I think I've mentioned my complete love of Erin's debut Plain Kate (read it, read it!) and through I knew the story of it's publication it was lovely to hear form Sarah's point of view.
The best thing I heard at the conference "Paranormal IS huge, but we're still selling contemporary" PHEW!
Anyway, this is getting epic ! So have a fabulous weekend everyone. Those doing NaNoWriMo hope you have a good rest before the insanity begins. Myself I shall be rallying
TO KEEP FEAR ALIVE!!!
Then watching my husband run the Marine Core Marathon.
GOOD LUCK TOM!
Running 26.3 miles makes writing 50,000 words in a month look like a perfectly sensible thing to do.
