Actually, I have quite a few pots in the fire right now. First, I am looking to broaden my exposure for my books and sites. I am currently working to get my books approved to go into a local chain. I am so excited about that! Also, I am looking for author interviews, book reviews, and places to post my books.
I have started researching ways to develop and sell character products as well. I would love to brand Clarinda Cloud! She would make a wonderful character for various products. I have an email into a company that makes stuffed book characters now. If any of you know anything about product development, I would love to hear from you.
Oh, and did you know that she is a spokescloud on bullying prevention and anti-bullying causes? I will continue to promote her as such. Bullying is an issue that has touched my heart. I want to do what I can to help prevent it.
After a long hiatus, I have started illustrating again. I am currently working on an illustration for a book that I first published, but had to buy back the publishing rights. I am looking forward to re-illustrating and re-publishing this book.
I have also been adding to and tweaking my websites. I have added an "events" tab to my website. If you would like to have me speak at your school, library, bookstore, or event, please feel free to contact me.
I am also running a sale on my online tutoring services. The discounted price ends June 15th, so sign up now! This is great for summertime learning, renewing skills, learning new skills, or just having help with homework. I help people of all ages and abilities. Also, it would be great for aspiring children's authors who may want some individualized help and encouragement.
And, did I tell you that I lost the last game of backgammon between my husband and I? Ugh, and I lost the last game of pinochle too! I guess my game playing hasn't been what it has been. Maybe it is because my creative mind has been overpowering my game playing mind. LOL!
