Too Serious & Honest for a Monday

Today I'm super excited to be on Alice Pope's SCBWI Blog, where I talk about the Mixed-Up Files..of Middle Grade Authors. You can check out the interview HERE!

If you don't already know about this site, From the Mixed-Up Files...of Middle Grade Authors, you should really check it out. Not just because I'm a member of the site (even though that's a BIG reason!) but because it features so much awesomness for anyone who's interested in MG, whether you're a reader, author, or a professional. And did I mention, there's LOTS of givewaways? 

As a member, we have rotating topics today was my first. So that should be another huge reason why you should visit this site out right this very second! Confession-I was super nervous about this first post. If you read it, leave a comment letting me know what you think. Honestly! My post is titled SERIOUS ABOUT SERIES, any guesses as to what it's about? No? Okay, I'll give you some clues. I have some terrific MG authors--Sammie Barry and Trudy Trueit-who answer some questions about writing series, and quotes from wonderful readers too!

Coming this Friday, to a blog near you...

I will be a guest blogger on Matthew Rush's blog, where I will be posting my query letter and he will give his feedback on it. AND since the subject matter will be so appropriate, I will be holding a query critique contest here on my blog.

Friday is also the concluding day for two more contests. My art giveaway--if you haven't already entered (and why haven't you?), and the Candyland Contest for Charity-seriously, this I haven't come across a more deserving contest than this.

Happy Monday!
