08:05 am: Waiting, waiting, waiting....
One of the worst parts of this gig - waiting for reviews. My reviews used to come to me via fax - and to this day, the sound of the fax machine sends my heart a-thumpin'. Now they sneak up on me in my emailbox.

Even though How to Steal a Dog has gotten very nice reviews from most of the big guys, so far, it's still nerve-wracking waiting. I made it into the next issue of  Horn Book, which pleases me a lot. (I heart kf). But I'm STILL waiting on School Library Journal and the Bulletin. I hate the waiting.....

congratulations on the nice reviews!

Funny - I noticed the other day how my heart flipped to see a manila envelope in my mailbox. Mind you, all my submission have gone through my agent for the last three years!

See what this business is doing to us?

Hi, Barb! I loved Moonpie and Ivy! And I've got a review copy of How to Steal a Dog that I can't wait to read (my 12-year-old grabbed it off my stack before I had a chance to read it -- great title, BTW!)
