It’s hard for me to believe that today is February 4, 2014–the day I’ve looked forward to specifically since last spring, when I found out the publication date for WHEN AUDREY MET ALICE, and generally since the day I wrote my first “book” in elementary school, MANATEES: PROBLEMS HELPS. (I was all about the serious nonfiction back then.)
People like to ask what you’ll do on your release date, and for a long time I had no answer other than “be giddy.” Then I realized that the answer was in front of me all along, on my book’s back cover:
Alice would commandeer a bottle of champagne, for starters. And then she’d go “eat up the world.” So I am off to do my version of that! (Spoiler alert: It will involve literal eating.)
Thanks to everyone at OneFour KidLit for helping me celebrate!
