Beep Beep Beep

My kids love Alvin and the Chipmunks- The Squeakquel. They quote lines from the movie all the time. One of their favorites is... "I don't mean to toot my own horn, but... beep, beep, be-beep, beep!" (Okay, sounds much better in a little squeaky voice)

Anyway, one of my blogger friends went to a conference in Spokane, Washington. She attended a session by agent, Kendra Marcus (who represents yours truly). It turns out that Kendra mentioned THREE NINJA PIGS in her presentation as an example of a very clever picture book!

So... beep, beep, be-beep, beep!

Okay, now that I got that out, your turn? What do you have to toot about this week?

Please share.

Corey, that is sooooo exciting! I'd be tooting my horn if I had news like that too. Sadly, I don't. :-)

How fun!

I just had something really wonderful happen...I wrote a blog post and someone who writes picture books and is published read my post and emailed me saying that she'd like to see my manuscript and offer me some feed back...Now how cool is that!

Thanks, Corey...even if you look at it and say I should start making boxes for foxes instead of writing stories for children I'll be forever grateful...Thank you so much!

We had to see The Squeakquel once...and once was enough. A friend offered to give us a free copy of the DVD and I said NOOOOOOO. I was having visions of sitting in the van for the 3-hour drive to my husband's mom's house, listening to Chipmunks all the way.

That is awesome, Corey and Sharon! I don't have anything to toot about (that sounds like I'm thankful I didn't have beans for lunch), but I wanted to say "good job" to the two of you!
