The aforementioned book about a squirrel has made it over the first obstacle. My wonderful agent, Holly McGhee, is enthusiastic about it. Now it’s with Simon & Schuster. I’ll let you know when they weigh in.
Sorry for the long silence. Since the previous post I’ve been working fairly hard on a story about a squirrel. It’s set in New Jersey and New York City and is nearly done.
I wondered when I created this website if I would ever blog, and it seems I don’t. But I’m determined to do better. Mostly I’ve been preoccupied with a new project. More soon.
A nice review of Firstborn in Booklist. Though the reviewer takes a swipe at the title. Hmm.
A lovely starred review of Firstborn in Publishers Weekly. Check it out!
A really nice review of Firstborn in School Library Journal. As for the audio book, it’s been decided to use a female narrator, as befits the story. Jenni Barber sounds like she’ll do a fantastic job.
Firstborn got its first review today, a really nice one from Kirkus. It was also named a Junior Literary Guild Selection. Excellent news. On the other hand, Simon & Schuster is doing an audio book version, and they’ve floated the idea of my reading it. I don’t think so. The narrator is a female magpie, for one thing, and for another I don’t much like my voice.
