Happy August Everyone!
I hope you’re all on the beach with a great book, a cold lemonade, and people you love, having a wonderfully summery time!
We are Dog Day-ing it like the pros we are here on Blueberry Hill…
I mean, can we lie down and sleep, or what?!
It is extremely important not to overtax yourself in the heat 🙂
Traditionally, I take August off from blogging, but this year everything is so topsy-turvy that there’s no point in trying to pretend any kind of organization.
So I will mostly take August off from blogging… except for starting my new series on August 14th (because that’s the day it has to start)… and maybe having a little bit of a party on the 28th because some MONKEYS I know are having a book birthday… which gives us an excuse for cake 🙂
The new series, entitled Tuesday Debuts, will feature debut authors sharing the intimate details of how they sold their first picture book. It is intended to be educational and inspiring for all picture book writers, but especially for those who have yet to make that first sale. Who knows what nuggets of insight and wisdom and insider tips you might glean???!!! I hope you will all read it while you’re on that beach we were just discussing and find out! 🙂
Please tune in on Tuesday August 14 for our debut debut author, Chris Mihaly!
Meantime, read something good, write something great, and don’t forget your sunscreen 🙂 🙂 🙂
