THERE IS NO CHARGE TO BE LISTED on this blog, however I do ask for a reciprocal link to Cool School Visits, at where I offer lots of free advice about doing school visits. I also ask for a social media shoutout about my book, SELL BOOKS AND GET PAID DOING AUTHOR SCHOOL VISITS. (<-- That's a live link to Amazon.) Sorry, except for a few close friends, I can only list you in your home state.
MY DEFINITION OF "TRADITIONALLY PUBLISHED"...If you're with a publisher you know I'll recognize, write to me and I'll add you. If you have any doubts, CLICK THIS LINK and scroll down to a list approved on SCBWI's "Published and Listed" (PAL) list. If you see your publisher on this list, write to me. If not, then you're with a publisher too obscure to be added. I don't want these author lists to become so lengthy that the site loses its original intent: to save educators time when "shopping" for an author.

It's not polite to insult bears

Darn these crummy bifocals. Yesterday I thought I read the following headline:

"Cruel winter's latest

insults bears downeast"

Then I read it again:
"Cruel winter's latest insult bears down on East"

Well thank goodness. I'd hate to think some rude "latest" is going around insulting bears in Maine.

It gave me such a grin that I have been inspired to "limerize" the following poem:

by Kim Norman

The bulletin caused me to frown,
and my brain wondered, "Black bears? or brown?"
Then I found my opaque,
Ursa Major mistake
was confusing a verb for a noun.

How funny. Bifocals are a pain no matter what. I love the little limerick. I will remember not to insult the bears, except the one that lives above my head (husband = bear but not teddy, grizzly) - lol. Thanks for giving me a laugh. E :)
