All the latest updates, and they’re all good!
Stack the Cats is out! Here are some of the exciting things that have happened since:
- Stack the Cats was selected as a best book of the month by Amazon’s editors!
- The adorable trailer made in collaboration with my friend and director Gerry Saucedo was selected as a featured book trailer by Shelf Awareness. See it here:
- I traveled up to Portland to sign copies for BuyOlympia at Crafty Wonderland, where the first two hundred visitors also got this tote bag I designed (not my cat):
- People are sharing so many wonderful reviews and blog posts about their reading experiences, associated projects, and thoughts about this little book! (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11…) If you have a project or blog about Stack the Cats, please send me the link!
This is just the best.
Next month, you can also find me posting over at the SCBWI Team Blog during #LA17SCBWI, the annual Los Angeles conference for the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators July 7-10. Register at this link. The action-packed SCBWI summer conference is an incredible resource for anyone interested in a career in children’s books as author or illustrator. And Judy Blume will be there!
Until then, I’m here shipping orders, preparing for upcoming shows, talks, signings, and craft shows, and working on my next book. Here’s some of what’s new in the shop:
