One Book Out, One 1st Draft Done, and One Manuscript Scrambled...

Quick news from some fun folks from the children's book publishing world: David Ezra Stein tells me his Monster Hug picture book is out (third book this year! Boy!). Wendelin Van Draanen just finished the first draft of the 12th volume of Sammy Keyes, tentatively titled Sammy Keyes and the Cold, Hard Cash (sounds fittingly dramatic for a mystery book!). And poor Lisa Yee has suffered an attack of the software-that-just-won't-cooperate, and her latest manuscript is one long word (no joke). Go drop her a "cheers, thinking of you note." It won't bring her manuscript back, but it'll stomp out some of Lisa's shock...

Hey, thanks for that link to Lisa Yee. How can she make everything so funny? Even when it's a nightmare?

And what exactly does it say about me that after reading that, I immediately went and downloaded a trial version of Scrivener to check it out?
