The latest

The cover art for How to Become a Knight is done. Pub date is August 7. Here's a link to the blurb on the publisher's site.

I'm actually way behind on my writing, so I don't want to get lulled into a false sense of progress--everything coming out in 2018-19 was written three years ago. I have to keep feeding the pipeline with new manuscripts or there will be nothing in 2020!

In the meantime, Samuel is home for the long weekend. It's nice having an apartment full of boys (including Bailey).

Last but not least, Jo and I are going to Cayman later this week--tacking a weekend mini-vacation onto a business trip.

Now let's see if I can spend the next two hours writing something!

I know, I look like I'm in a magazine ad for cholesterol medication.

But we had fun.

2. Kick ass at new job.

3. Write 12 picture book manuscripts. Seriously, they're not going to write themselves.

Highlights from week 1:

The future is up to us. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

Well, that was an interesting year

It was a rotten spring, an interesting summer, a pretty good fall, an excellent December, and a near-perfect Christmas. Something is due to go wrong again any minute, but for now we're going to eat, drink, play, sing, hug, smile, and call it a win.

Holiday newsletter

We finished the photo shoot yesterday afternoon. I made the composite pic yesterday evening, then wrote the newsletter last night until 2am.

I procrastinate, but I can hit a deadline.

Newsletter is here:
