Books Together has just been added to the line-up for my Three Robbers blog tour. Anamaria, who posts at Books Together, is a member of the SCBWI. She's writing but not yet submitting.
So consider who will have a hand in this discussion of chapter books:
June 29th A children's author who is writing but not yet submitting.
June 30th A children's author who has published his first book. (Sam and I are both published by divisions of the Penguin Group.)
So those two bloggers may be covering the subject from a writer's angle or, you could say, a pre-publication angle. But we'll see what happens. It's sort of up to them.
Then we'll have:
July 1 Two librarians.
July 2 A literacy advocate.
July 3 A publisher of an on-line children's literature journal.
July 4 An education professor.
July 5 A librarian.
All those people may be covering the subject from the post-publicaton angle. So, you could say, we may end up going from the act of creating a chapter book to what you do with a chapter book once it's done.
Do you see how linear that is? Have I ever mentioned here that, when I'm actually organized and on task, I crave linearity?
