5-4-3-2-1!!! Blog officially launched! Thankfully someone finally answered my echoing "Hellloooo?? Anyone out there???" calls. It was my husband. Figures.

As you can see, there's a lot of loose ends in my so-called "launch." But anythings possible in blogdom! Right? Let's hope this techy challenged girl can figure out how to place her book titles in the sidebar instead of front and center, (including a snappy link to Amazon.) Maybe there will be a link for purchasing personalized and signed copies of all my books, too! And hopefully I'll figure out how to sidebar my bookstore and school visits and newsy news about... me, I guess.

There's more on the way, too...

"Do Princesses Count" will be out in the early spring. It marks my first board book (ages 1-4!) Who would have thought that writing a book about counting one to ten with a total of 44 words would take such careful thinking! Good thing I payed attention in 1st grade math class. (We won't talk about 10th grade geometry, now will we.)

(pan out into unfathomable darkness.... silence...)
