Is it too soon to congratulate the Irish team for summiting Mt Everest. More tomorrow!
Tonight in Lynwood Barnes & Noble. Open discussion for first time authors. Will feature Peter Waugh, children's author (The Great Cannon Beach Mouse Caper), Kate Birch, (Spring of Fever), Rodney Broome (Terra Incognita) and Kieran O'Mahony, Publisher (Geography & Education).
Rufus Goodwin's new title Mr. President is now available in bookstores. It is a solid read that enlightens and forces us to think. Rufus' books are always entertaining. Dorothy's book Holy Land Whose Land continues to sell well in its hard back edition. She will be reading in the St. Louis area this month.
Educare Press just launched its new imprint - Market House Publishing. After very little deliberation, Ronan, Emily and Troy forced the day, easily knocking out the other contestants. I would have much preferred Bittern Press. But none of them had ever seen a bittern not alone understand the significance of that day in Germany! Youth, it's lost on the young.
Onward to the BEA. This year we are more than busy in LA, but we are looking forward to a sailing jaunt to Catalina with some movie rights folks - after all, we are launching the scariest book of the year. Keep in touch for more news about the fair and to meet the authors for the launching of Spring, Mr P and Mouse. Oh, did I mention the screen play...
