Happy New Year, everyone! We haven't been doing a lot of posting lately because we've been writing and traveling and holidaying and eating and reading now we're doing things like writing and exercising and eating and reading, but it's time to give a ducky shout out. We have good news!
First up is Alma Fullerton. Walking on Glass
is out!! It's just hitting the shelves this month and I got my copy from Amazon this week. It looks bee-yu-ti-ful and the story is awesome. Congratulations, Alma! Great reviews for Walking on Glass
and for her recently released In The Garage
are starting to come in, and it's all very exciting.
Shelly Becker has been creating a bit of a buzz with her book, Mine! Mine! Mine!
Shelly's doing radio interviews and Mine! Mine! Mine!
has been getting enthusiastic reviews and was featured in Atalanta Parent Magazine's 50 must read books! And Shelly just found out that Mine! Mine! Mine!
is going to be featured in an upcoming Radio Disney promotion. How cool is that?!
We're looking forward to Katy Duck Duffield's second book, Poltergeists
It's available for pre-order now on Amazon and the cover looks great! We got to take a sneak peek at Katy's Poltergeists a little while ago and it is absolutely fascinating. I can't wait share it with my 11 year old niece!
There will be quite a few ducky pieces in the magazine world this year. In the next couple of months you'll find Shelly's poem WHEN WAFFLES ARE AWFUL in the February issue of Highlights. In March we'll get to see Shelly's rebus, PUDDLE PLAY, and Tanya Seale's poem, NO NAP!
Last, but certainly not least, Kristy Dempsey has a wee bit of good news of her own. She's sold two picture books! In Kristy's own words, "The first is a boy-friendly pb to Bloomsbury and the second is a pb celebrating the wonders of having a better-than-best friend to Philomel." Who-hoo!!!
So, it's only January 11, but we think we're having a pretty good year so far and we wanted to celebrate with our LJ friends. We'd love to celebrate your good news, too, so please let us know if you've got something to cheer about in 2007.
