More excuses...

Okay, so I had TWO car accidents. TWO! And I know I'm way behind on my blogging, but did I mention that I had TWO CAR CRASHES???!!!

And then, on top of that insane mess, I FINALLY got permission to show you THIS! It's the cover of my book (done by the remarkable Greg Call). MY BOOK< "Up and Down the Scratchy Mountains", coming out next August from Random House.

So really, I can't be expected to blog about other people's books when I have THIS to show you. Right?

Two car accidents? One is scary enough. I'm glad you're safe. And I think sometimes life gets in the way and we don't have time to blog. That's okay. You're allowed. :)

I *love* the cover of your upcoming book. It's beautiful. And of course, how could you blog about anything else? (laughing)

Oh, the cover is GORGEOUS.

Your cover is lovely! Congrats. And be careful out there!

My, my... that cover has all the elements of a classic. Congratulations, and stay safe.

Which isn't to say I'm not looking forward to your review of The Mysterious Benedict Society. I spotted it on the shelves of a local children's bookshop months ago, but couldn't remember the title when I went back. I spent several return visits scouring the displays muttering, "Hmmm... Some kind of secret society, with a pope's name... Boniface?— no...."

I finally decided its elusiveness was part of its charm— after all, what kind of secret society would be easy to find?

LOL Tempest!

I just had that problem with Octavian whozitcalled...

Thanks, everyone. I'm SO excited I can barely see.

It does look like a classic! We'll most certainly be buying a copy.

It's so exciting!

Truth to tell, in my early 20s, I had two car accidents within a month of each other, but my driving record has been clean since. So now that you've gotten it out of your system, you can relax! :-)

I hope the next month is much better.

You got the bad things out of the way, now it's all uphill!

Great cover - really pretty!

Yikes! Two car accidents and a new cover? Perhaps the distraction of the latter precipitated the former?

Love the cover, btw.

So sorry about the car accidents, but YAY for a book cover!!!! It looks fantastic! I can't wait to read it :-)
