Many apologies for not having a blog post today but am in LA, the City of Angels, having a wonderful time at the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators summer conference. It's been really wonderful on many levels. After I return, I'll start putting together a report on the conference along with why it's so important to join SCBWI if you aren't already a member along with some other exciting news.
