You Just Never Know What's Going To Happen

Shortly After Noon

Something new is always happening in this life, and you just can't predict what it's going to be. I got up this morning to rejection. Then after lunch I received an e-mail from my editor at G. P. Putnam telling me that the Junior Library Guild will be offering A Girl, a Boy, and a Monster Cat (coming out next June) as one of its selections.

And Christmas is this weekend!

Really, if you don't like what's going on in your life, just wait.

Though, of course, that also works the other way, too. Damn.

JLG! That is AWESOME!!!! I know ###s of libraries in my district that subscribe to JLG because of the quality of the book selections! Congratulations! What a Merry Christmas present!

BTW, last week I was checking in books at a jr. high and in came Hero of Fort Ticonderoga! It is always fun to see books by my favorite authors circulating.

Wow. That's not a new book, either. I'm glad to hear that there's still interest in it.

Yes, it was quite a good Christmas present. I got another this morning that I'll be blogging about later.
