The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Yep, you guessed it. School' (You have to sing that to the tune of "School's Out for Summer" to get the full effect of my excitement here.) :)

Funny how I've changed my tune from my teaching days when I dreaded the start of school. Now I adore it! I honestly didn't realize how hard it would be to write with the kids home this summer, but I've learned my lesson. Next summer...Camps! (lots of them!)... Chores every day (to keep them busy and to keep them from whining about being bored!)... Naps! (mostly for me!) Slowly but surely I'll figure this out.

As far as the job goes, I'd like to say I've been as productive as Lin this summer...writing a whole book in two months, or Joan...practicing her skills on super-buff convicts, or Lisa...digging up dead bodies and studying blood splatters on ancient walls. But, alas, I think they all kicked my butt. On the writing front, though, I HAVE been a promo monster lately - gearing up for the big release of STOLEN FURY December 30th. So much to do between now and then, but I'm getting very excited (and nervous). And after all my tinkering and pondering and eyebrow pulling this last month (which is normal for me when I hit the 3/4 mark), I *think* I've finally worked out the bugs in my plot. So I'm cruising through the last few chapters now. The bane of my writer's existence is where to start a story - I know all writers struggle with this - so I bit the bullet and sent the most recent first three chapters to my CPs, then held my breath. Luckily, they loved it. One even asked me when she can read the rest...she's dying to know what happens next! I live to hear that. Hopefully my editor will love it just as much.

On that note, I'm going to leave you with some pics from San Fran because I kept promising to post them, then kept getting distracted.

This is me with my super-cute (and uber-talented) editor, Leah Hultenschmidt, at the Dorchester dinner Friday night.

This is me and my fabulous agent, Laura Bradford, after the awards ceremony on Saturday. Incidentally, I'm looking at my contract now, thinking, "Wow...she's awesome!!!"

You can check out more pics from San Fran by going to my website. I posted a whole bunch there.

How's the return of school treating you? Are you loving it as much as I am?

How's school you ask? 20 kids in my homeroom and 15 of them are boys. I had 2 parent conferences the first week of school for bullying/teasing issues. Enough said.

Oh yeah, and these are 6th graders.

I am FINALLY getting back to writing! Yay! (I feel like such a horrible mother, LOL).

Eek, Lexi!

And no horrid mother, Delilah. You've been a wee-bit busy. ;)
