Before I cut you a slice of my humble pie humiliation, I wanted to share some great news:
Angela Cervantes, one of the amazing writers in my critique group just had her book announced in Publisher Weekly!
“Anna Bloom at Scholastic has bought a debut middle-grade novel by Latino Writers Collective founder Angela Cervantes. The story centers on a Latina sixth-grader who, while volunteering at an animal shelter, discovers that she has a lot in common with the abandoned cats and unwanted dogs there: they want a loving family, and she wants her mother—who was deported to Honduras—back. Publication is set for 2013. Adriana Dominguez at Full Circle Literary brokered the deal.”
So very excited for her! You can check out Angela’s website, or congratulate her on Twitter: @AngelaCervantes. Yay Angela! Doing the happy dance for you. 😀
Now, on to that other thing. Video #4.
(For those who don’t know, Leigh Moore and I were doing a 30K in 30 days challenge, and the pennance for missing a day was posting a Hacky Sack Club video. I missed 5 times!!!)
For the record, I sustained an injury in the making of this video. Darned high heels gouged me! I guess this’ll teach me not to skip out on writing.
And if you haven’t entered, and want a chance to win one of those books, you still have time! Just CLICK HERE. (Wow. Writing it in all caps like that makes it look kindof spammy. But it’s not. I promise.)
So can you walk with a book on your head?
