I walked Miss Gracie at dawn so I could arrive at Raymond Cree Middle School by 7:30AM. Over the course of six class periods, students packed the library to hear me speak. My big thanks to them and to the gracious teachers (and their essential timekeeping) and the super nice librarian (who snapped photos throughout the day and endured the same speech for six hours!) Thanks, too, to Dr.Tracy Piper, Principal, for inviting me. Everyone was so nice, and I met lots of fun, imaginative students. Thank you! I can't believe I forgot to photograph the teachers and librarian!
Hugs to you all.

I just spent a fun morning at James Workman Middle School talking to more than sixty GATE students and their teachers. My thanks to super librarian, Angie Gallacher (pictured above), for inviting me. As a former GATE mom, it was great to be back among such bright, sweet students. Thanks for listening, and for asking great questions! Thank you GATE teachers, for letting me steal your students for awhile.

Ever love a book so much you didn't want it to end? I had to utilize tremendous self-control to make Gail Carriger's new steampunk, YA novel, Etiquette & Espionage last through two short plane flights and a long week-end at PantheaCon. Kudos to Garriger for breaking the New York Times' Hardback YA Bestseller Top Ten list. www.gailcarriger.com/ Fans of fabulous world building and light fun will love Etiquette & Espionage!
Only at PantheaCon:
1. A seminar on Osiris, Set, and Horus gives the famous story from Set's point of view.
2. People are reminded to take a daily shower.
3. You find yourself behind a woman with light blue hair that looks like cotton candy.
4.You can can learn new ways to foil demons and evil spirits. (I'm a shaman-these are important details!)
5. Pirate slippers are considered formal wear.
6. A woman in a wheelchair wearing an enormous witch's hat said,"I wake up every morning and say, I am a lucky woman."
7.You go to bed each night with joyous chants playing in your head.
