The Newburyport Literary Festival is Coming!

That's right! The Newburyport Literary Festival is coming!

Can you tell I'm excited?

April marks my one year anniversary as a Newburyportian, and what better way to celebrate.

Last year's event was wonderful, and this year looks to be equally fabulous.

Given that I've been pitching two picture books, am finishing up a third, and am also working on a reluctant reader for boys, I'm particularly looking forward to the eight children's authors who will be presenting. The list even includes Wimpy Kid author Jeff Kinney!

Can't ask for better input than that!

Stay tuned for more details as the schedule gets fleshed out.

The Newburyport Literary Festival is coming!

Today... finished up long letters to several friends. Wrote a blog post. Researched 5 publishers. Took the dog to the doggie park for off leash adventure, urination, and romance. Called about volunteering at the church's soup kitchen. Ate cake. Read part of a mysterious book. Prayed for the mourning hearts of several mothers. Picked up additional zinc in an attempt to fight off a lurking virus. Slept in. Wondered how the heating bill could be so high when the temperature has been so warm. Answered "Why Newburyport" to another old friend. Hoped to be published. Worried about not getting enough done. Read some of my beautiful daughter's beautiful writing. Wondered when I'll see my son. Lived.
