Whew! I am swamped with a revision, two magazine article assignments, and a new job teaching writing to sophomores at a very cool school.
But, I had to mention that I’ll be appearing at the U.S. Botanic Garden on the Mall in Washington, D.C., this Saturday, 9/10 at 1 pm. I’ll be doing my usual program of spreading the language of flowers, reading/ discussing my novel, and demonstrating how to make a tussie mussie. Here’s hoping for a big crowd!
And for anyone interested in YA books — especially aspiring YA writers — mark your calendars for Sunday, September 18th at 4 pm. I’ll be appearing with several local YA author buddies — Valerie Patterson, Jon Scovron, Pam Bachorz, and Susan Collins Honenberger — at One More Page Books in Arlington. I absolutely love this bookstore, and the program is all about YA. How to write it, sell it, and promote it! Hope to see you there.
Now back to work. Is there a flower for energy?!
