I was happy to open my e-mail Monday and find out - surprise - I was a finalist for an award in children's fiction! This is a national award which gives out prizes to all the big houses like Hyperion and Simon and Schuster, so to be a finalist coming from Fava Press really excites me. I just wanted to share the good news with you all!

Local author night was a success. I had a lot of fun with poet Dennis Stanfield and Cleveland mayor candidate Kimberly Faith Brown. Being Rosh Hoshana, the crowds were thin in this Jewish neighborhood, but all the seats were filled and the standing area as well. Next week I will be speaking to the MADISON WOMEN'S BOOK CLUB at GALE'S COFFEE CORNER in Geneva at 10 am on Monday the 13th. Then on Wednesday, the 15th, I will be appearing at PLYMOUTH ELEMENTARY's READING NIGHT from 6-8pm. Finally, on Monday the 20th, I will be at KINGSVILLE ELEMENTARY speaking to the students all morning. Happy Reading!
