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.

Two Book Signings Friday, November 6 at AASL Conference


So I now have two signings on Friday. The first is from 9-10a.m. at the Boyds Mills Press booth at the exhibit hall. The second is from 12:45 p.m. – 2:15 p.m. at table 9, the Author Pit Stop. Please come say hi, and don’t forget to sign up for my concurrent session on Saturday at 10:15 a.m.

News Flash

My publisher (Boyds Mills Press) is going through some major changes, and my wonderful editor, Joy Neaves, will soon be there no longer. I’m very sorry to lose her. Isabel would not be the book it is without her patience, wisdom, and demand for excellence.

It remains to be seen what this will mean for my easy reader, Slow Poke. For now, it’s on hold.

I went ahead and planted a new flower garden near the mailbox and have been watching for rabbit evidence daily. A good spreading of powdered dried blood (no joke!) is supposed to ward them off, so I did that (no, not my own—you can buy it). Garlic is supposed to ward them off, too. It’s all very Bunnicula sounding, come to think of it, though I suppose blood would attract a vampire bunny, not deter it.
