Excuse this interuption for a winner announcment-------

Thanks again to Laynie King for stopping by and letting us all get to know her. She's picked a winner of a copy of her book, Palo Duro Panic, and that person is........

Sheri Larsen!!!!!

Sheri, Laynie will be sending you an email so you all can get together.

Today is the first day of school for my kidlets, so I'm busy getting their little butts off to school. It's a half day, so they won't be gone too long! But tomorrow our fall schedule starts, and I'll get back to blogging on a more usual basis. This Friday I'll be a guest blogger over at the Gem State Writers. I'm looking forward to talking about writing, why I chose middle grade, and how I developed the world within Saving Redwind.

Since it's the first day of school here, I'm wondering what memories you all have of your school days. The older one is starting 7th grade and the younger one is starting 5th grade. 5th grade, for me, was the last year of elementary school, and it was also the year I got my finger smashed inside of the school door. Ouch! It was also the first year I had a "boyfriend". 

What are your school memories?


  1. Congrats to Sheri!

    It's the first (rainy) day of school here, too, and boy, what a madhouse. I think we all forgot what a schedule is!

  2. Sheri~ Laynie will be contacting you about her book. Enjoy!

    Janet~ Our house was all ready to go this morning - a miracle! We'll see how the rest of the week goes. Also a huge CONGRATS on winning a copy of Saving Redwind!

  3. I'm with Janet! What's a schedule? We're supposed to be at the bus when?!

  4. Susanna~I live by my calendar! If I didn't have that, I would be completely and utterly lost.
