I'm emerging from my writing "hermitage" (remember my photo?) with a couple of bits of good news!
ONE CAME HOME has been chosen for a couple of statewide reading lists for 2015-2016. These are the best lists to be on because kids read the books and then vote on their favorites. My book is for those readers and so it's such a pleasure to find out they'll be reading about ONE CAME HOME, discussing it, arguing over it, and then voting. Awesome!
Okay here are the lists I just found out about:
Tennessee: 2015-2016 The Volunteer State Book Award list. Yay!
How's the writing going? The story is moving along, and I simply hope I can capture what's going on in my head on the page. I think it's going to be a good story. I hope so anyway.
And now, back to the hermitage. If you don't see me a lot here, or on Facebook, you know I'm doing my job. It's good news!
Man, do I feel blessed to be able to do a job that I enjoy. I wish the same for you!
