After a (thankfully) nearly nonexistent winter, we’re on the cusp of spring with a buzz of activity. Some great literary friendship interviews are coming up, but today’s a catching-up day.
If you feel a need to hear me drone on (DRONE!), you can catch me over on Alison Formento’s blog, talking bee-talk about my 2012 releases, SO YOU WANT TO BE A ROCK STAR and BROTHERS AT BAT: THE TRUE STORY OF AN AMAZING ALL-BROTHER BASEBALL TEAM.
BROTHERS AT BAT was shining with pride last week as School Library Journal and Booklist both bestowed stars upon it, as Publishers Weekly had done previously. You can read the reviews here.
BROTHERS AT BAT is starting to show up in bookstores and I’ll have my first in-store appearance–the only one scheduled with illustrator Steven Salerno–at Books of Wonder on Saturday, March 31 from noon to 2 pm. We’ll participate in a baseball books panel discussion along with the great Matt Tavares, Diane deGroat and Shelley Rotner.
You still have time to enter to win one of two give-away copies of BROTHERS AT BAT through the goodreads giveaway. And today’s the last day to enter the ROCK STAR PALOOZA giveaway being hosted on Kami Kinard’s Nerdy Chicks Rule blog.
The groundhog was so wrong. Spring came in February and it’s nearly summer. Today’s forecast here in NJ: 70.
Is anyone holding that rodent accountable?
