Blog tour finale!!!

Friday, September 12th, 2008

The always-brilliant Margo Rabb (perhaps you know her fabulous book?  Or her awesome essay at the Times?)  has asked me to name my sexiest writers… and my imaginary boyfriend!!!

This will come back to haunt me. I’m nearly sure of it!

Blog Tour Stop #8: Beatrice

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2008

I’m honored to be up today at, with a little essay about sexism in “traditional” children’s books.  Beatrice was one of the first lit-blogs I ever read regularly, and Ron Hogan is one of those people who make the world run.  Illuminati kinda guy. No joke.

Stop by?

Blog tour stop #7: Big A little a

Monday, September 1st, 2008

A super funny interview with Kelly Herold today, over at Big A little a! I love when I get these kinds of questions, unrelated to publishing… and Kelly is a dynamo, someone I long to be in another life.  If you don’t know her many inspired projects (Cybils, Edge of the Forest, etc) , you SHOULD!

YA Novelist and all around fabulous lady, Daphne Grab, interviews me over at the Longstockings today!

Blog tour stop #1: Amy Guth!

Sunday, August 24th, 2008

Amy (who is just about the hottest, smartest, Jewish-est writer I know) helps me ask the citizens of blogistan:  What was your favorite book as a kid?

In answering the question herself, she confesses a deep and abiding love for Dorrie the Little Witch!

But what was YOUR favorite book as a kid?  Blog it up, people!

All about ME?

Sunday, August 24th, 2008

It’s feeling a little weird that so much of the blog content right now is promotional junk about my own book…

So I want to take a  second to say that of course my life is still my insane life– the boys and I went to Charleston on Wednesday, and found it lovely and dramatically wind-swept. There were “little boats” and “BIG WATER” (says Mose) and we all slept in one giant hotel bed and I did not get a lot of rest.

Yes, I promise I have not gotten so book-obsessed I’ve forgotten to feed my kids, or read other people’s books, or eat tacos on a daily basis.  I read and loved the Willoughbys, and I read and didn’t love Peeled nearly as much.  Also,  7 Imp’s Yolen interview rocked my world, and  I’m currently obsessed with Fictionaut. The stuff of life.

But all that aside, for a little while it mostly *is*  ALL ABOUT MY BOOK, because Up and Down the Scratchy Mountains comes out on Tuesday!


To that end, I’ll be up all week at the Class of 2k8, embarassing myself with stories about elementary school and the like. And I’d really really appreciate if you could pop on over, or  maybe even link to anything you find interesting.

And I’ll also be BLOG-TOURING– visiting blogs around the web all week long. PLEASE STOP BY!

Today I’ll be lolling about with Amy Guth.
Monday I’ll be hanging  with the fabulous Longstockings.
Tuesday I’ll be getting Roasted!
Wednesday I’ll be drinking a beer with Baby Got Books.
Thursday, Laini Taylor is dying my hair.
Friday I’m chatting nonstop with Lizzie Skurnick.

And next week? Well, you’ll have to wait until NEXT WEEK to find out about all of that.

And eventually, I’ll get back to pictures of babies and general ranting.
