Dear LJ friends, Kidlitcon made me love you more than ever.

As I was just saying over on susanwrites 's LJ, I love my Bonny Glen readers & the conversations we have there. But there is something really special about the intimate writerly conversations that happen here on LJ, where all of the folks I follow are in children's books. I came home from Kidlitcon--where it was such a joy to hang out & talktalktalk with other writers (and that's always how I feel after a con or a visit with a writer friend like annemariepace --determined (not for the first time) to be more involved over here. Maybe I'll cross-post some Bonny Glen stuff, I don't know.

Here's a bit of a cross-post, actually: the day after Kidlitcon I had the incredible, magical, dreamy experience of visiting Mankato, MN, home of Maud Hart Lovelace, with Kathy Baxter (an extraordinary woman and a force in children's books) and my pal Margaret. Margaret posted a fabulous account of our trip this morning. She makes tons of fun of me, which is one of the things I love best about her.

Hey, that's me!

You need to post more book stuff here. You have exciting things happening and your friends want to know about it. :)
I think I have new news since the last time I talked to you, in fact! But it's still all news and no *paper* yet--waiting for contracts. Random House did say I could announce the beginning reader at Kidlitcon, though. I didn't *announce* it per se, but I did slip it into my bio... :)
Well, you email me your new news and I'll email you my new not-to-be-announced-yet news.
