I've been invited to speak to a youth group this week about writing and publishing -- two of my favorite topics. It is always exciting for me to help encourage youth in the writing craft. One of my favorite things about book signings is meeting young people who like to read. They light up when they talk about their favorite books and authors. I was excited too when I learned during one book signing that an elementary school was using one of my books in class.
On another note, I very soon might be collaborating with another person on a book project. It'll be something different than what I've done in the past. I can't say anything else right now, but I'm excited about the possibilities.
Also, I'm a good chunk into writing my next book, this one another solo project and much larger than any of my published books so far. There's never a dull moment, but that's OK. That's how I like it -- busy writing. Now if I could just get in the habit of updating my blog more often, that'd be good.
On a final note, thanks for all the messages you've sent me through the contact page. Keep 'em coming, and I promise to reply as soon as possible. As always, thanks for reading!
