This is just a reminder that the next Carnival of Children's Literature is coming up on June 23rd. Deadline for submissions is Saturday June 21. The theme is Fathers in children's literature. 

The carnival is simply a gathering of posts on a related topic. The Carnival of Children's Literature is a gathering of posts for the month on the topic of children's literature. Sometimes, like this month, the person hosting the carnival chooses a theme. In honor of Father's Day I chose fathers in children's literature. What father or father figure has stood out in your mind long after you closed the pages of the book? Write a blog post about it and then let me know so I can add it to the carnival.
 
You can submit at the carnival site http://blogcarnival.com/bc/cprof_209.html or send notices directly to me. 

Please help spread the word so we can have a full carnival.

Hi, Susan -- I love your tag: "busy." I bet. I loved the interview with Jim, and how great you are doing this carnival. It's the first time I have submitted to a carnival, and I went to the link you gave but felt slightly overwhelmed. So if you don't mind, I'm taking you up on your generous offer to send a notice to you directly! Could you link to my June 16 blog? If it makes it easier for you for me to go through the other steps though, please tell me, and I will figure out my way.

WHO AM I?



Who am I?I was born on the Cancer/Leo cusp and share a birthday with Ernest Hemingway and Robin Williams. The similarities don't stop there as I can go from depressed to ecstatic without ever passing go. I feel scared most of the time though my friends call me brave and I find it easier to believe in my friends than to believe in my own abilities to make what I want out of my life.

Who am I? A wife, a mother, a daughter, and even, gulp, a grandmother.

Who am I? A writer who never gets tired of playing with words, even when the words are hard to find. A writer of books for children and articles for grown-ups and many things in-between.

Who am I? A motivational speaker, writing instructor, workshop leader and full-time follower of dreams.

Who am I? Read and find out.

"Successful writers are not the ones who write the best sentences. They are the ones who keep writing. They are the ones who discover what is most important and strangest and most pleasurable in themselves, and keep believing in the value of their work, despite the difficulties."
--Bonnie Friedman

"As writers, we must be willing to feel our sadness, our anger, our terror, so we can reach in and find our sweet vulnerability that is just sitting there waiting for us to come back home."
--Nancy Slonim Aronie

"Writers write about what obsesses them. You draw those cards. I lost my mother when I was 14. My daughter died at the age of 6. I lost my faith as a Catholic. When I'm writing, the darkness is always there. I go where the pain is."
--Anne Rice
