Here are some things i've been working on. I have an art event coming up the first weekend in June so I have to make new stuff.

Works in progress....

News: The Good, The Bad, and the Great

Wow, it's been awhile, right? Since my last post I finished two deadlines, got sick, ALL my kids got sick, then somehow I got sick again. But this time it was like the flu and I was stuck in bed for a week. Sleeping 18hrs a day. Yeah, not fun. So, updates.

Author Event: Total bust. If it weren't for friends coming out to support me, I don't know what I would've done. Promotion just wasn't as big at the Indie store. Sigh. On the plus side, I sold out. Does that still count?

Another Author Event:  Yes, I'm going to do another one. Back to B&N I go! It will be in May so I'll give details soon. Oh, and I have a school visit in May! I'm so excited!

GOSSIP: Lets see, about two weeks ago GOSSIP FROM THE GIRLS ROOM went into it's THIRD printing! Seriously, how awesome is that?

RUMORS: My second book in the Blogtastic! series, RUMORS FROM THE BOYS ROOM was originally scheduled to be released Spring 2012. But, they have bumped up the date! That's right, RUMORS will be out on Oct. 11, 2011! Squee!

Tomorrow I'll post some art pics of what i've been working on (preparing for Open Studios in June). And coming soon: interviews by me, about me, and a super fun contest to kick off an awesome project-- on it's way!

What's new with you? I know i'm behind, so I'd love to know what's going on with all of you!
