Big Ninja News and a Giveaway!

Okay, I have been MIA for the past couple of months.

It's not because I didn't have anything to say.   (I did)

And it's not because I have a big mouth and I was afraid I would let the cat out of the bag too soon.  (though I do... and I already did... on Facebook!)

It's because I was preparing to give my first-ever workshop at the NJ SCBWI annual conference, and I am completely incapable of multi-tasking! 

I can't even talk and drive at the same time.  Just ask Tara Lazar!  (I gave her a ride to the conference)

But now that the SCBWI event is over, I am back with some big news:

I have hit the trifecta!

I am thrilled to announce that Putnam has taken a third fractured fairy tale-  NINJA RED.

To celebrate, I am giving away a copy of THE THREE NINJA PIGS 

Two ways to enter:

1)  Follow me here and leave a comment on this post.
2)  "Like" my author page on Facebook and leave a comment there.

I will draw one winner on Thursday June 14th at 8:00 PM (EST) and pre-order a copy of the book which will arrive on its release date, September 27th.

Is Dan going to illustrate Ninja Red, too?

I just left you a blog award on my blog, Corey! Congrats! (Hope the link works.)

Corey, I've been MIA too, so I just now saw this.

Huge congrats on Ninja Red! That is so cool! Is it Little Red Riding Hood ninja-style?? Woo hoo!

And I told you last year you should be teaching at the NJ SCBWI conference, so I'm thrilled to hear you actually did. Sorry I missed it! Maybe next year.
