Okay, I admit it.  I'm a spotty blogger.  

There.  I said it.  I'm inconsistent.  I'm not-at-all CONsistent.  Not in the least.  So I don't really expect you to remember way-back-when, when I was blogging about a character of mine who was giving me FITS!  She was slippery.  She was mysterious.  And most of all, she was sometimes not very nice.

Her name is Hope.  And I'm delighted to let you know that Hope has found a home!  SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!  :-)

My second middle grade novel, Selling Hope: Or, Gaining Glorious Asylum from Mr. Halley's Fiery Beast, will be released by Feiwel & Friends/MacMillan in Fall 2011.  *does hurkey* *laughs at the word "hurkey"*

Want to learn more about this slippery, mysterious girl named Hope?  Please read more about the book here.  

Doubly - no, TRIPLY - exciting is the fact that Feiwel & Friends is releasing my friend Jill S. Alexander's debut, The Sweetheart of Prosper County, this fall.  Folks, this book is geeeee-orgous.  Truly.  More on my love of this book later, when I bribe - erm, ask - Jill to join us for an interview here.  I predict you will hear a lot about this book this year.  Just thinking about it as I type this is making me smile...  

Ah, Hope.  Slippery and mysterious indeed.  :-)
