Dog fun and free conference!






I interrupt my torturous waiting time to lay some funny on ya. (I'm still waiting to be able to spill my super-amazing good news!)

Also, a few sites that you MUST visit -

1. A few of my awesome peeps from The Elevensies have started an incredible FREE on-line conference for kid-lit writers! It has an AMAZING line up of agents and other personalities. The party will be held in August, but for now, go check out the site  WRITE ON CON and see for yourself!

2. From the Mixed-Up Files is another ground-breaking idea that has sprung forth lately. A whole website devoted to MIDDLE GRADE books! It's loaded with great book ideas and discussions and a gaggle of awesome middle grade authors.

Thanks for posting this. I've been excited all day about the conference.

And I just heard about the blog devoted to middle grade books. I'm glad for that too. There's not as many blogs for middle grade as YA. Great pictures too.

Hey Terry, love the dog photos. I have a cairn terrier. His name is Kakita. The kids named him after a samurai warrior or some such thing. He's a wimp, though. A very LOVABLE wimp. Anyway...Doing Happy Dance for you. (Smiles)
