This might be a short post: even though I've been blogging for eight years, I don't think I can really up my game. Reading and posting at least one middle grade fiction book every day takes a lot of time. The most important thing about blogging, to me, is to get the titles of new books out into the world.
I would like to go to KidlitCon in October, but it involves flying and talking to people, neither of which are comfortable for me. Still, I'd love to meet my many "creepy internet friends" and I know many of them will be in Sacramento.
Maybe next year I'll hit the ACTUAL BEA and also manage to get on Ellen and create a huge internet sensation with my blog. I do think I have a really good blog, but I'm not all that good at self promotion.
As for short stories and novellas-- not a huge fan, but it was fun to read the Ally Carter novella where the characters from Heist Society met the Gallagher Girls!
Am currently setting up a garage sale for my cross country team, so haven't been a good BEA player today. Off to comment on posts!
