Good news from fellow writers

You know what I love about writing? (Well, one of the many things.) I love the connections I make with so many cool writing people. I also love sharing the celebrations when my writing friends and soulmates succeed. True, some of them don't know we're soulmates, but as writers on the same road, we are. I still get to jump up and down for them from afar.

So here are a few random things to celebrate:

  • Laura Deal's gripping YA fantasy Wind Ringer placed third in this year's "The Sandy" writing contest, Sci-Fi and Fantasy category. Hurray!

  • Claudia McAdam ( and Anna-Maria Crum's ( delightful picture book Maria's Mysterious Mission is up for this year's Colorado Book Award...which means I get to cheer for them at the next CBA banquet. Check it out--it's a terrific read!

  • Fiona Bayrock Smith's ( upcoming science book Bubble Homes and Fish Farts will be a Junior Library Guild Selection. I've been enjoying Fiona's writing for a while now. Congrats!

  • Local author Denise Vega's Fact of Life #31 is out! This is one of the first books I was privileged to critique before it hit the presses. And the book is amazing! No surprise, given the author, I suppose.

I love being a member of such a great world of writers!
