Dan’s Dog Eared Books was a blast this weekend. I gave a workshop that took the audience from finding their inner book, to submitting and what to expect from the industry. Everyone was most excellent to me, including Jeanie, my hostess, who sent me home with chocolate and a blinged out bookmark! I think I want to be adopted now ;)
The last of the editing for Delbert Dallas and the Dragon Diaries, #1 Voyage to Viking Island was finished this weekend. Look for the release on March 22nd. These short stories are fabulous reading material for middle-grade readers. I loved highlighting the Viking age in this first story. What fun! I had no idea what a byrnie was!
My blog tour continues with a few more fabulous new stops and places to be entered into a contest. Check them out here:
First, a HUGE shout out to Tea Mouse. Not only is she being a fabulous blogger and hosting a stop on my tour, but she also made the lovely banners everyone is seeing on all my blog stops.
