Book learnin'

See what I did there? It's a double-entendre, of sorts.
For the past ten days I have been submerged in snowy Montpelier, Vermont, at my graduate residency of my MFA program, Vermont College of the Fine Arts' MFA in writing for children and young adults.
That's right, folks, I'm all fancified and certified now! I've got the diploma and everything!
So, now that my two year, incredibly intense schooling is behind me, what better way to keep myself busy than the GOLDENGIRL LAUNCH-A-PALOOZA?
As you MAY already know (ahem), GoldenGirl will *officially* release on Tuesday, 1/27. This means that as of Tuesday, my editors and I will be kicking off a frenzy of online fun for you: interviews with other awesome teen authors, behind the scenes info and pics from Bradford: The Making of a Series, polls, contests, prizes, giveaways, and more!
And for those of you who just can't get enough of mememe, I'll be chatting away with The Page Flipper on the evening of 1/26. I hope you'll join us, Monday night, and throughout our blog festivities!

So, now that I've got a big ole' master's degree, am I going to start talking all proper and finally forgo the slangity?
Well, what do *you* think?





  1. Yay! Congrats! That's huge. Lots of great stuff going on for you!

  2. It has definitely been busy, that's for sure. But that's the way I like it.
