Some exciting news from my publisher--they decided to print 7,500 more copies of A is for Musk Ox! That will make for a total of 17,500 books that will be printed. Wow.
Also, some more exciting news--Scholastic Book Fairs will be joining the hard cover print of the 7500 books! My editor said they're crazy about the book. Which is just awesome!
And even more fun news--my book is coming out on Tuesday!!! I'm so excited!!! And that means I get to have a book launch! I'm actually doing two. My mom is doing one at the school with her kids. She's a second grade teacher and my son is in her class. She's going to invite another third grade class with my other son in it. So we'll have a coloring contest and cake and do some fun things with the kids and we've also invited some friends to come to that. And then my second book launch will be at Braun Books from 6:30-8:00. Braun Books is in Cedar City, UT on 25 North Main Street. If you happen to be in the area, please stop by!
And in non-book-related, exciting news, my brother was just married on Thursday. (That way their wedding date could be 10-11-12.) And I've been busy making decorations. I didn't realize just how long it would take to make 70 tissue paper flowers. Also, I'm the new cubmaster for my son's boy scouts, so I've been going a little crazy trying to figure out what I'm doing and getting pack meeting planned. So, lots of fun and exciting things have been going on around here.
