Long time, no blog! I'm sorry I've been MIA. This week was crazytown; I came back from the Dominican Republic (see pics of my horseback ride, below!) and, after a period of grieving, had a whirlwind of work to catch up on. But I wanted to share some crazy cool stuff that happened this week!
1. First off, I made the Times list. Delirium was #6 on the children's bestseller list for the week. I was so thrilled and happy, I nearly spat my drink out on author Courtney Sheinmel, with whom I was sitting at the time I found out...and that would have been tragic, because she was wearing a very nice shirt!
2. Secondly, I have a super cool verified author profile on Figment, now. Check it out here. Isn't it pretty?? I'm really digging this site, guys, and for all you writers out there (and I know there are a lot of you, because you lovelies respond to my writing challenges!), I encourage you to post your writing up there and start exploring this new community. Also, check out this amazing video that Figment filmed at WORD Brooklyn recently, at my reading with Anna Jarzab and Leila Sales.
3. Last but certainly not least: SWEET POTATO BURRITOS. Oh. My. Goodness. Okay, I know this is a little random and you might not be sure if sweet potato burritos are newsworthy, but trust me, they ARE. I discovered them at Naidre's, a cool little cafe on 7th Ave in Park Slope, but have been making my own recently and...YUM. YUM times a million! You MUST try them. You will thank me later.
I hope everyone's having a great long weekend. Hugs and sweet potatoes to all!
