Some good news for Laura

Just got news that my bug book has been picked as a Junior Library Guild sort-of book of the month for July and it's not even out yet. My editor says I should be very excited. The Junior Library Guild has been around since the 1920s and chooses what they consider the best books of the year and then sells them to school libraries and municipal libraries all over the USA. Some other authors I know say that my publisher will then need to increase the number of books printed to accommodate the increased number of sales, which is way cool. In accordance with my editor's instructions, I am excited.

Stacy Whitman

Stacy Whitman is holding a writer's workshop March 21 at the Provo Library. I think the time is 1-4p, but I can't remember exactly. It's $40/person, but if you sign up in a group of 5 or more, it's only $30 per person. I'm attending -- is anyone else interested?
