Some More Things Coming Together

I think I have enough games and activities to start assembling my kid-friendly website, so that’s the next thing on my list. I need to put together the opening page and figure out how I want to organize the games. I’m thinking about organizing them by the game type and having a puzzle page, word game page, etc. But I’ll have to see how that works out. It’s still going to be a lot of work though, between designing the pages and testing the links. I’m going to be glad when the website is launched and I can get back to the business of writing again. I’m itching to write some new material. I did get a chance to submit some more work though and that makes me happy. I have five more submissions making the rounds out there.

On the publication front, I received the cover for my book, If I Could Be Anything. Marina Movshina did the illustrations and I’m very happy with them. She was a pleasure to work with and I’m looking forward to the book’s release. The latest word I’ve received is that the book will be coming out in November. Here’s a sneak peek at the cover.

Happy Writing.

Interview of me at The Storyteller's Scroll

Just starting to dig out from the long holiday weekend. I went to the Jersey shore for a much needed vacation. I did bring my laptop with me and wound up working on another game for my website though. My intenet access was sporadic so I didn't get a chance to blog about my interview at The Storyteller's Scroll. After I won the contest, Gayle asked if I could do an interview. It explains my particular path to publication and what's been going on afterwards. If you get a chance, stop by and say hello. The link to Gayle's blog is below.
