After nearly two years of continual blog updates, I'm taking a short summer vacation. But know that while I'm away from the blog-o-sphere, I'll be . . .
1. Beginning a new novel.
2. Preparing my speech and humor writing workshop for the S.C.B.W.I. conference in L.A. this August.
3. Working on a promotion plan for my new novel -- HOW TO SURVIVE MIDDLE SCHOOL (without getting your head flushed), DEAL WITH AN EX-BEST FRIEND, UM, GIRLS AND A HEART-BREAKING HAMSTER. (It'll hit shelves April 13, 2010.) I'm so excited about this one!
4. Celebrating a birthday. Whee!
5. Enjoying time with family and friends at the lovely, relaxed pace that only summer offers.
Play nicely while I'm gone.
