I started this blog 8 years, 7 months, and 14 days ago (that’s 3,151 days if you’re counting). Today, I’ve decided to officially stop updating this site (fwiw, I’ve only posted twice in the past three years, so this shouldn’t come as much of a shock). This will be my 152nd … and final blog post.
If you’d like to stay connected, here’s how you can find me now:
Looking back at these last 8+ years, it’s been pretty amazing.
I signed with a literary agent and sold 22 picture books, 15 of which are available now:
One of which is available for preorder:
Two of which you can mark “Want to Read” on goodreads right here,
And four more of which have yet to be announced (SHH! It’s a secret!)
I visited (and virtually visited) 794 schools, libraries, bookstores, conferences, and festivals.
I made a handful of book trailers
And got a little grayer (or is it greyer? or more gray? I should ask a writer).
Regarding the blog, my first post was Sunday’s Poetry Exchange.
My most liked & shared post was How to Buy a Picture Book (without Buying a Picture Book).
And my most viewed post of all time was Don’t Write in Rhyme, which is ironic because more than half of my books are written in rhyme (I wonder if people who stumble across my site when searching for rhyming picture book advice realize this).
And that pretty much wraps it up. Thanks for hanging out. I’ll be seeing you around … everywhere but here.
This blog is now officially defunked.
