My Very First Easy Reader: WHY CAN’T I HAVE MY OWN WAY?

Unearthed recently from the ESP archives, this is my first easy reader, written sometime during my first grade year. I’m posting it today to celebrate the release of my new easy reader, Slowpoke! Enjoy.

"No, this one."

"I am." / "I am."

"This."/ "This." I believe that's a couple of dodge balls vs. a jump rope.

"You can't," (says the mom). "I will," (says the kid).

The Books Are In!

After a detour to NC, my author copies arrived in Germany this week. Yay!  The best part was having my kids insist that they each had to have their own copy, then demanding that I read it to them twice.

For more information about Slowpoke, click my newly updated website (thanks to the talented Cheryl Nathan).

I’m taking a bit of a blog break for the rest of the month. See you in August.

Slowpoke Available for Pre-Order!

Hi everyone

You can now pre-order my easy reader, Slowpoke, through amazon. Please do! It’s the story of a slow-moving girl whose fast-paced family gets fed up with her. Click here or on the picture above to get to the appropriate page.  The picture of the cover is not on amazon yet, but don’t let that deter you. I appreciate your support.

Slowpoke Has a Cover!

Now that it’s official, I can finally share with you the cover of my upcoming easy reader. That’s Fiona there in the middle, taking time to smell the roses. Slowpoke is the story of a slow-moving girl and her impatient family.

I still don’t have a pub date on it, but it looks like it’ll probably be Fall 2010. My daughter is just now learning to read, so it’s exciting to think that she may be able to read it herself by the time it comes out. I’ll keep you posted.
