To do:

1. Get back on track with Emma - there's a Box Hill picnic to discuss, and I've put it off too long already.
2. Remind you that KidLit Con is open for registration. It will be held in Seattle this year (Sept. 16-17), with Scott Westerfeld as a keynote speaker. Some details are available at Colleen Mondor's blog, with information about registration and submitting proposals at the Kidlitosphere site.
3. Mention the Summer Blog Blast Tour, which kicks off on Monday, July 11th - I'll be posting two interviews during the week, and there are some truly amazing folks being profiled, as always. I sure hope you'll check out all the interviews!
4. Tell you how exceedingly proud I am of my friend Jules (aka Julie Danielson of Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast), who has the distinction of having been selected to be on the jury for The Society of Illustrators' 31st annual exhibition of The Original Art.

Ohhh, the Box Hill picnic is one of my favorite parts of the book!

At the same time, I soooo get the busy-ness :)

I find the Box Hill picnic scene absolutely mortifying - Emma behaves so very badly! - but it is an excellent scene largely because of that.

And thanks for understanding!

Are you going to kidlitcon? have you been before? What in the heck is it exactly? Bloggers talking about blogging?

I'm not going - cannot swing it. I haven't been before, but the folks who have gone seem to love it. It's mostly bloggers talking about blogging, yes - events, reviews, how-tos, etc. There's quite a bit of networking that goes on, too, since there are quite a few publishers who send folks these days.

Look for an email from me soon.

Grrrr. I do not have your email address. How is this possible? Can you DM it to me through LJ? Meanwhile, I'm off to the shore for the day.

Interesting! Thanks for the info.

Um . . . what's the FTC kerfuffle?

It had to do with disclosing whether or not you got something you were reviewing for free, and whether you had to claim it on your taxes and such.

Huh!

Wow, my internet absence made me miss a ton of stuff.

Darn, had been hoping that you had mentioned Kidlitcon because you were going. That would have tipped me over to the other said of the fence. :)
