Christmas tends to be an endurance test for me. Looking forward to January is what gets me through it.
This year looking forward to Valentine's Day helps, too. Here in New England Kids Hearts Authors Day will be held on February 14th. Authors and illustrators will be making appearances across the region in independent bookstores that morning.
Authors and illustrators and independent booksellers still have time to sign up.
Planning for the new year is the best way to avoid a post-Christmas letdown.
By the way, Kids Heart Authors Day is the brainchild of Mitali Perkins.
