point_betsie_lgI’m heading north to my parents lakehouse this weekend for some thinking/writing time. I’m sad to be missing this year’s SCBWI conference. I always have an incredibly inspiring time; and it was a year ago that I met my agent at our SCBWI Michigan fall conference. For all of you attending, have a great time!

While I’m up north, I hope to put some pieces together for another book–a great way to distract myself from the impatience I’m starting to feel about the fate of the first one. Up north will be important to this book. Think: The Goonies meets Post Secret. The book is going to have something to do with those concepts.

I’m also going to be putting together some blog interviews, including my first YA author interview. But first I’m waiting for her book to arrive. Just ordered it and I’m excited because it too is a military-themed book.  Look for details later. Also, I’m going to start featuring interviews with soldiers and veterans, so I have some questions to put together for that. I’m very excited. So, look for those to be coming fairly soon.

Also, I’m hoping to finish HATE LIST, by Jennifer Brown. So far, this book is incredibly good.

I’m guessing I’ll only get about 1/4 of these started. But I’m happy about the potential!
