Summer Update

Hi Friends:

Just a quick summer update. It’s just about two short months until Susie B. Won’t Back Down hits the shelves. This is such fun and funny book, and I can’t wait for you to read it. I’ve been at work at a cute 2-page downloadable fun sheet for readers. It takes the form of an old-time newspaper that Susie B. made for a class project. Here’s a sneak peek of a picture Susie B. made for it.

I’m also happy to share the news that SUSIE B. WON’T BACK DOWN has been chosen as a Junior Library Guild Selection. No one would be more excited about that than Susie B. herself. She really is a little obsessed with getting recognition, but then aren’t most of us? Susie tries to get noticed by running for president of her school’s student council.

I ran for my student council in ninth grade…and I lost. But nothing is ever wasted when you are a writer. That is one of the great things about being a writer! All your experiences are just just grist for the mill. So take that Henry M. Gunn High School! Looks like I got the last laugh after all!
