Next week is the national BookExpo America! This is a HUGE author event each year. Sadly, I can’t go, but if you’re up for a spontaneous weekend trip this will not disappoint! Check out the details:

I’m so excited it is FINALLY warm out. Winter was so dreary and drawn out this year, we’ve been starved for warm weather here in the Midwest. I can’t wait to take my computer outside on my porch to write! College students are out now, so things are slowing down a little there. My evenings are coveted- those precious few hours of sunlight left after dinner- it will be just my computer and me. And occasionally the three-year-old question and dogs barking. Couldn’t ask for anything better! 🙂

So a quick update on my current project – the Purdue book! It is coming along well. My sister is hard at work on the illustrations, and with any luck, she will hit her deadline which is just under two weeks away. Once that is done, we will move forward with the layout and finally, the printing. This is so exciting! I’ll keep you posted as things move forward.

Happy Monday!
