--My brother and his wife had a baby late last week, and I now have an adorable nephew!
-- I went to the ALAN workshop in Nashville. I saw a lot of authors speak, sat under a chandelier that was about the size of my house, and learned that it is indeed possible to put a river inside a hotel. And then build a boat ride for it. (Yes, really!) I also learned that driving to Nashville takes a long, LONG time. Also, Nashville is on Central Time, which really surprised me. Especially how I realized it. (I passed a billboard that said "Now entering Central Time Zone." Who knew?)
-- I found out bloom is going to be published as a trade paperback. (!!!!!!!!!!!!)
-- And! My cover!!!! Rather than post it here, and let blogger blur it up (as it did when I posted it to the news page), I'll just say you can see it by clicking here. It's so pretty, I can't believe it's mine. And the blurb from Deb Caletti *still* makes me giddy every time I see it.
