Final revision complete...woo-hoo!!

It only took a little under three years and four plot changes, but I finally finished the final revision of my young adult supernatural suspense In Search of Joy. Well, technically, there will be more revising (via agents and/or editors), but I can most certainly live with that. For now it's out of mind (yeah, right) and sitting in a non-simultaneous submission publisher's pile while I focus on finishing the first draft of my middle-grade humorous novel Mira & Whiskers.

Celebrate good times, come on!
Let's celebrate.

Everyone around the world come on!
It's a celebration.

OK, enough blissing out...back to writing.

The Doom of Wonder Bread

Tony Cenicola/The New York Times
Here's a sneak peek of my middle-grade sci-fi story THE DOOM OF WONDER BREAD, part of the 2015 Young Explorer's Adventure Guide. 20 short stories with a focus on diversity. 80% with central female characters. Black, white, Asian, Latino. Human and robot. Everyone belongs.

And there's still time to help support diversity in kidlit...the Kickstarter campaign ends November 19th.
