Great Find!

I found this website today,, a GEM! It is like facebook for children's authors, illustrators, agents, publishers, teachers, librarians, and more. If you are looking for a network there are over 6,500 + authors that live out there alone. I can tell it will be a wonderful resource and can't wait for something really cool to happen. Thought I'd share this with you as you might be looking for some of the same information I've been looking for. Let me know what you think - it is well worth signing up for! ~ Suzan ~

June 8th! Approval Form SIGNED!!

Just a short was another landmark day! I received the last draft of Johnny Green and the Little Green Man to approve. On breaks (in the midst of training for a week) and at lunch time, I busied myself with reviewing the final corrections that had been made to Johnny Green. He sits perfectly complete somewhere in the Xlibris files waiting to go to print for the first time...the first copies in a hard cover and a soft cover book, of which I will review and sign off on and then go to print. I am so attached this little guy I feel like I should be there to receive him hot off the press. I wanted to scream at the top of my lungs, but rather couldn't hold back the tears of joy when I looked through the book for the final time checking off each correction I had requested one after another. Wow! This has been quite an experience. And best of all - it will be published in time to be on exhibit for the National Educators Association conference in July, in San Diego! 1 year and 10 months later here we are! Please give Johnny a standing ovation! I can't wait to provide you with more information!!! As I receive it....I will pass it on!!!
