Yay I get to Spill the Beans!...
I have big news.
If you have been following along (Thanks!), you know that last month I had a secret project I was working on. Well, it's not available for purchase yet, but the contract's signed so I feel confident telling you about it now...
I'm a Playwright!
My stage adaption of Hot Fudge Pickles by Marilyn D. Anderson is going to be published by Off the Wall Plays!
About the Book (and Play)
When a teenaged troublemaker drops a pickle into a vat of chocolate, the revolting treat might actually give the whole town something to celebrate. Soon everyone wants a "green monster" - it even draws attention from the President of the United States!
If you're looking for a fun story harkening from a simpler time when children weren't so wired to their iPods, this is it.
And if your community or school is looking for a play script based on the book... Stay Tuned!
In Other News...
Now, don't think this detour has changed my dreams of being a traditionally published picture book author. I'm polishing up a picture book manuscript for a SCBWI Conference in October, and will probably also query with it, life permitting.
And How it Going for you?
Soooo, enough about me.
What goals are you working on?
How's this month been for you?
Let me know all the details in the comments...
Or, you know, blog about it and leave a link. Like these lovely people did:
I write about, with, for, and around kids all day. (Well, maybe I do the dishes too. Sometimes.)
