Thank you!

Thanks to Krisztina for picking me as the October winner - what a marvelous surprise!!! Seeing as she loved Doggy so much I made him the focus of the banner along with my homage to the weather we had this past week which blew out our power for four days. No heat, no electric, no light and NO water!!! I am so glad to be back on track now though. *Sigh*

It's been a tough month with workshops and conferences galore. I attended a NJ SCBWI mentoring event last weekend and have posted my notes along with a few pictures on my blog if you are interested. These events pair you up in one-on-one sessions with editors form major houses - it's really great and you get lots of fabby feedback about your work.

NJ events are open to out-of-state members as well as non-scbwi members. Check the upcoming events out listed on the NJ SCBWI Website. Prices are reasonable, and the events are always tons of fun!

Hey Leezy, are you doing the happy dance yet!!!! The banner is a hoot! So sorry to hear about all the trouble, but there are some good times under there I know. I can't wait to hear all about the conference. Working a nine to five it's hard getting away. I would have loved to have been there. Well, I can't wait to see what you are going to post for Snow white. I'm waiting with baited breathe! Congrat on the very precious Bunny Award. Don't forget to the princess wave!

Yes princess wave all around. Maybe the dog should make an appearance in your Snow White imagery? Glad you have your services back on. Not fun!
