It’s been a whirlwind of a week, and yet, somehow, I kept thinking that every day was Friday. Including today! Maybe it’s because I am looking forward to the long weekend. Or maybe it’s because BEA (Book Expo America) is going on this week, and I always look forward to that. Well, I stopped by the Javitz convention center yesterday and took a stroll through the booths. I have to admit, I was a bit let down. It felt small, and many publishers had downsized their booths. Many skipped it all together this year. There were hardly any galleys to take, hardly, even, any books on display. It’ll be interesting to see what happens next year, I guess.

Meanwhile, the lovely Cynthia Leitich Smith was kind enough to feature an interview with me on her Cynsational blog. You can check it out here:
I was so excited to meet Cynthia earlier this year, when I went down to Houston for an SCBWI conference. She is a tremendous writer and a wonderful person, through and through. Thanks, Cynthia!

Hope y’all have a great weekend!
