Post Trip Blues

News: my latest childrens' story, Nautical Mystery Quest, is being published in Storyteller Tymes Magazine, August 15, 2009.

Really cool news: Dogs in Canada asked me to send in another article!

Problem: after you've paddled around the largest freshwater Island in the World, what do you do next?

We're currently scanning the World map if anyone has suggestions.

In writing news, upon my return I had 7 rejections, 3 acceptances and one expression of interest in my book Dogsled Dreams. Of course my mind had me already on the plane for my book signing tour. That is why it is so much more crushing to get the "sorry, your book is awesome but not awesome enough..." email. Apparently it made it to an editorial meeting of the small press I had submitted it to.

Dust off, submit elsewhere, look ahead far into the future to your next vacation and begin to plan the next ultimate kayaking trip.

Oh yes, and if you would like to REALLY learn how to roll a kayak the correct way that actually works and is way more fun than any other method, check out Heather's instructions.
