Sigh....Chipeta didn't do lunch

  I nudged the agent, and the editor she was hoping to meet with had health issues, so the lunch didn't happen.  The agent said to keep submitting it elsewhere. I wrote back and asked about the story where I'd made the revisions she asked for, but no reply.  I've been holding off submitting these stories since I heard from her March 7, but guess I'll get back in the saddle again. This business is such a rollercoaster!

Chipeta in New York

Oh, my!  I received an e-mail from the interested agent.  She's having lunch with an editor who is looking for bios to turn into graphic books for young readers, and the agent said she would mention my Chipeta story!  She didn't say anything about the other stories I sent her when she liked Confetti the Yeti and asked for more of my work.  But it still makes me smile to think of dear Chipeta being discussed at lunch, in New York City!
And, she apologized for taking awhile to get back to me!  She is the absolute nicest agent.  I so hope she signs me at some point!

19 years of Awful Waffles!

   I was out of my little easy readers so I ordered another set, and realized that the first one, Awful Waffles, came out 19 years ago!  I'll have to celebrate next year.  The good news is--all five are still in the current 2017 catalog! 
   I lined up my books and some of the magazines I've written for (to get a photo for my facebook author page) and my newly adopted ten year old cat Maggie May checked them out.
