Blog interviews and a giveaway!

Hi all!!! I'm in recovery mode from this crazy fun week and tackling my mail pile and laundry mountain. Stay tuned for launch party pix . . . but in the meantime run over to Lisa and Laura's blog for an interview with me AND my two favorite picture book characters Izzy and Rose.

Then check out my interview with the fabulous Cynthia Leitech Smith at Cynsations and leave a comment to be entered in a signed book giveaway.

Today's the Day!

Today my book Puzzled by Pink hits the shelves of bookstores, although I actually had my first official signing yesterday at the Fay B. Kaigler Children's Book Festival in Hattiesburg, Mississippi.

What an amazing feeling!

Check out interview and giveaway today on Tara Lazar's blog.

Book Launch Week!!!

Yikes! My book is going out into the big world on Thursday, and I'm so excited I can't sleep.

Our fabulous independent bookstore Square Books Jr. put up these window displays last week. Check it out!! A pink window for Rose and a spooky, dark one for Izzy. Genius!!!

Tomorrow, I'm heading down to Hattiesburg, Mississippi, to the Fay B. Kaigler Children's Book Festival. It's a fabulous annual conference geared toward children's librarians. I can't think of a better place to be on the day my book is released. I'll be speaking during a breakout session on Wednesday.

After the Hattiesburg Conference, I'll head back up to Oxford for a launch party at Square Books on Saturday at 10:00. Whew and WOW!!!!
