Today is Bob Marley's birthday. He would have been 70 today. If you know me, then you know that I celebrate this day every year. May you be positive to every person you meet today. May you never believe that money makes you rich.
I am writing to you from the cave. I drew the cave on my Amy Road Map 2015 as pictured a few posts ago. I've been writing a book and I'm getting very near the end. Life is good in the cave.
News has come in the last week.
First, I got a letter that said that the Pennsylvania School Librarians Association had chosen me as their 2015 Outstanding Pennsylvania Author. This is fantastic and humbling and lovely because I have set every book I've published in Pennsylvania. Thank you PSLA! I can't wait to see you all on May 1st at your conference and thank you in person.
Small Glory news from ALA--she made the Best Fiction for Young Adults list.
Also, in a fantastic stroke of luck, she was listed on the Top Ten Amazing Audiobooks list. A huge shout out to Christine Lakin for her unbelievable performance.
Cover reveal for I Crawl Through It happened yesterday over on The Novl.
I Crawl Through It is coming 9.22.15 and it's a surrealist novel so saddle up and get ready for a mind-bending read. I'm not sure what else to say except that I love this cover. It encapsulates the book's themes well and it's as weird as the book is. Come back tomorrow for a description of the book.
Back to the cave work now.
By the time you hear from me again, I will have finished the book I'm working on.
This is positive.
I'll leave you with this.
