Note to authors everywhere: Are you feeling a little blah? Unloved? Finding it hard to get stuff written?
Visit a school. Adam Selzer did.
Just drop in, unannounced, to visit a librarian who has exchanged a few e mails with you. You will make her day, as well as the day of various teachers and students who are reading your books. Mr. Cattrell, here pictured, was at a loss for words as he tried to explain to Mr. Selzer that he was the subject of a propaganda poster for The Smart Aleck's Guide to American History web site.
Hopefully, the school will provide a brief rock star moment for you, so you can return home with the cockles of your heart warmed, and get back to work writing your next fabulous book for young adult readers.
Thank you, Adam AND Ronni, for dropping by. It was great to see you.
