A Winner -- and Anticipation is keeping me waiting...

First, the winner of the signed hardcover copy of IN SEARCH OF GOLIATHUS HERCULES by Jennifer Angus is.....


AKOSS


Congratulations, Akoss! Look for an email from me, asking for your mailing address. Albert Whitman will be mailing your copy directly to you.

Last weekend, I attended the NJ SCBWI conference and I'll be posting my impressions of that next week, but I'm still catching up (and revising like mad), so for now, go visit last week's book blogger panel at Random Acts of Reading. We talked about what new books we're anticipating the most!

What books are you looking forward to?

    1. I learned a lot, Natalie, and met a lot of great writers. It was exhausting but fun.

    1. That's great, Stina! I may have to break it up into two parts. :)

  3. SOMEDAY I'm going to make it to a conference!

    The book I'm looking forward to most is actually an indie -- The conclusion to a steampunk fantasy series by Lindsay Buroker, due out in August.

    1. Haven't heard of that series, Dianne. And I hope you do get to a conference someday. Although you could be on the faculty!

  5. There is a MG: Magic Marks the spot by Caroline Carlson
    and an adult book: VISCIOUS by V.E. Schwab that I hope to be able to read this year.

    One is because it sounds so good. The other is because I love the author's writing enough to be interested in her adult debut.

    1. Haven't heard of either of those, Akoss. But they sound cool. Any MG with magic in the title is bound to be fun.

    1. Wow! I'm impressed, Erik. The Complete Sherlock Holmes. I'm sure I've never read that, just a few of his books.

    I really look forward to whenever I get a moment to read... I have a pile waiting for me... "Breadcrumbs" and "When the Butterflies Came" and "May B" and "The London Eye Mystery" and so on and so on... Just finished "Geenie Wishes" and "Better than Weird."

    1. Hi Julie! I've missed you! I'm sure you're busy with those kids, so any reading moments are treasured. That's a great TBR list. I haven't read either of those you just finished.
