Good News

A bit of good news arrived in the mail this morning. The Smell of Paint was included in The Canadian Children's Book Centre's 2008 Best Books for Kids & Teens.

I've been fairly quiet for the last while mainly because I was so busy touring. After resting up, getting my vegies planted, and having time to read, I'm feeling far more energetic. I thought I'd be back to writing by now, but it seems a longer break is in order, so I'm happy to enjoy the time with my nose in a book instead of a manuscript. In the meantime, helping to sort out next years program for the Victoria Children's Literature Roundtable is keeping me busy. Getting in touch with awesome authors like Margriet Ruurs and giving new writers like Michelle Mulder and Robin Stevenson is not a bad way to start the summer.

Jessie's Island a top seller since 1992

An email came in from Munro's Books, one of Victoria's fabulous independent booksellers, telling me that Jessie's Island (published in 1992; yikes can it have been that long ago!) was their top selling title again last month.
