Spring and News!

Yay! Look at these plum blossoms on a tree in Seattle. Isn't that awesome. Spring is here in the NW!

I think Spring is a great time of year. I love the birds chirping, the sun warming your back when you walk around town. I love the subtle scent of flowers and trees. I love the longer days. Daylight savings is just two weeks away!

So, in addition to the sunlight making me smile, I had some good news that you may have heard already, but I thought I would post in case any Buzz readers hadn't read it yet...

Author of the soon to be released THE CLEARING, Heather Davis’s next YA novel, WHEREVER YOU GO, the heart-breaking story of the ghost of a boy trying to make contact with the girl he left behind, who discovers that the girl’s ailing, Alzheimer’s-stricken grandfather alone can hear him and act as his spirit guide, to Julie Tibbott at Harcourt, for hardcover publication in Fall 2011, by Stephen Barbara at Foundry Literary + Media. (NA)

I love my editor over at Harcourt, so this is going to be another great project together. And my great agent, Stephen -- he's so awesome. I'm incredibly lucky to have these great peeps in my life. And, of course readers and the Buzz Girls! Thank all of you for helping make my dream real.

I wish we had plum blossoms coming up where i live. They look beautiful in the picture, though. And congratulations to Heather for her next YA book-I can't wait to read it!

Your next book sounds fabulous! Congrats! The blossoms are beautiful. I live in Michigan and right across the street from the apple orchards, so I can't wait until spring is in full throttle here :o)
