The Autumn Litwits Log is Coming!

Hi all -

The Autumn edition of the Litwits Log is about to go out, so I want to put a shout out to anyone who wants to sign up.

What's the Litwits Log? you ask.

It's a newsletter about kidlit by me, and other fabulous authors in my critique group: Natalie Dias Lorenzi, Ammi-Joan Paquette, and Kip Wilson Rechea. 

I wanted to put the last edition in the blog so you could get a taste, but I couldn't figure out how to do it, so here's a few screen shots.

We start off with a seasonal header and a main article.
Then we move into Book Bites, small reviews of 6 books: 2 Picture Books, 2 Middle Grades, and 2 Young Adults.   We absolutely will review our own books, but we also review other books and we won't review our own more than once.  So, for example, you won't see another review of Monkey Ono.  That would be sooooo boring!

We finish off each newsletter with Kip's Tip, a tip on writing or working as a writing from Kip Wilson Rechea.

 And that's it.

We do it seasonally, so there will only be four per year.  And all the articles are pretty short.  Who has time to read a novel-length newsletter?  I sure don't!

The upcoming feature article is an interview with author Ammi-Joan Paquette who has had FOUR books release this year!  WOOSH!

 If you'd like to give us a go, the sign up sheet is right here:

Happy Thursday!

(In other news: Magoo had a great first day of school.  He likes his teacher.  He went to art.  And he's excited that the class project this year will revolve around starting businesses.  I don't fully understand what he's talking about, but he's psyched about it.)
