The Children's Media Professionals' Forum

Here's a resource that needs to get shared a bit more.  The Children's Media Professionals' Forum was developed by children's author April Sayre and her husband Jeff with the idea of creating a professional environment to bring high quality content to children and young adults. It's a great place for educators, librarians, media professionals, readers and writers to link up. If you love children's literature, be sure to check it out.

Okay...and shameless self-promotion time, I'm the featured author of the week over there so I do hope some of you will come over and post a question so I won't feel too lonely. You have to register, but it's free! The Children's Media Professionals' Forum is a great resource and I hope you'll check it out and help spread the word to other teachers, librarians, writers and readers that you know.

I dropped by the Children's Media Forum. Cool.

I've passed the link along to folks at the Books and Writers Community. We have a number of enthusiastic YA/kids writers who should be interested.

It's a great forum. I'm glad they are spotlighting you. Obviously, they have good taste.

I'll try to think of something intelligent to ask you.
Cheers.

I'll be over sometime this week Susan.

I picked up the ARC to Hugging the Rock at PLA Thursday. I can't wait to start it. I mentioned to the ladies behind the booth that I'd already heard about it through your blog . . .

Good luck with it!

Thanks for your question over at the forum, Tamra. And I am looking forward to hearing what you think of Hugging the Rock. (No, I'm not nervous. Not at all. Really. Who needs fingernails anyway?)

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
