Something to Look Forward To

There are some pretty special MG and YA novels to look forward to next year. Here is the trailer from the Class of 2k11 to whet your appetite.

On a personal note
, seeing my name and little southern story in this trailer floors me.

After almost nine years, three completed novels, four abandoned partially completed novels, tears, laughter and many rejection slips torn into itty bitty tiny shreds my book is really coming.


Holy Cow.

That video is rockin' good! I loved seeing those images, and some of the book titles were so clever and begged further exploration. Thanks for writing that you had other novels and partial novels that never made it to the printing press. Sometimes, I get caught up on the one good work that I might produce. Some novels are practice novels.
