I'm late posting this, since the visit happened last spring, but I just wanted to share a photo of myself posing with a dear little girl named Rochelle. She made the sweetest card for me. We nearly missed meeting each other at an evening event for Arlington Public Schools (Virginia), but luckily I'm a slow poke, so I was still there when she arrived at teensy bit late. I'm so glad we met. (And I'm so jealous of her purple boots!)
THERE IS NO CHARGE TO BE LISTED on this blog, however I do ask for a reciprocal link to Cool School Visits, at www.coolschoolvisits.com . (Check it out! I offer lots of free advice about doing school visits!) 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.
