*My friend Stasia Kehoe has exciting news. She has another book deal! I'm so happy for her! Congratulations to Stasia!
*SCBWI Western Washington had a Kid Lit Drink Night on Friday. It was a rainy night, but those of us who went had a really nice time.

back row: Margaret Nevinski, me, Rowena Russell, Andrea Lawson, Christina Wilsdon, and Jennifer Mann
Kevan is not a camera hog, leaping in front of everyone else! Jen Photoshopped him in because we didn't think to pull out cameras until he'd already left. Personally, I think the Photoshopping makes the picture so much better!
*Have you seen the Dora the Explorer movie trailer by CollegeHumor.com? Wee-hee-hee!
*Writer-friend Barb Davis-Pyles has a fun blog called The Mind's Elbow. If you haven't discovered it yet, I recommend you check it out!
*This Thursday, Thistle and Pepper will turn eight years old!
Pepper and Thistle
In honor of Thistle and Pepper, people all across the United States will gather with family and friends on November 22, celebrating. Obscene amounts of food will be consumed, and there is going to be a huge parade in New York City--and Santa will be there!
(Okay, I admit it might not be all about Pepper and Thistle. Just don't tell them that.)
