I have taken that advice to heart.
The first interesting person of my acquaintance is our own Michelle. She is in the 2011 Children's Writers and Illustrator's Market. Carmela Martino* wrote an article about group blogs and asked the Slushbusters a few questions. Not surprisingly, Michelle's quote made it into the article ... that made it into the book (p. 69!) ... that we just bought from Barnes and Noble!
How cool is that?
The other interesting person I'll soon be acquainted with is...
Yes, Harold Underdown!!!
I was accepted into the Nevada SCBWI Mentor Program. Harold Underdown will be my mentor for six ... entire ... months.
Hear those squeals of joy? I'm just hoping that I can pull myself together soon.
