January Carnival of Children's Literature

The edits of the book are done!

For those of you not following the time-line of my insane life, the book I wrote with Sophie Brookover (called, like the blog, Pop Goes the Library) was due to the editor the first week of December.

I moved in December.

Christmas Eve, Sophie and I got the required edits back from our editor, and just when all the revisions (and a new chapter!) where finished, it was time for ALA. And so now I think I can breathe again, and it's Printz stuff.

I still haven't bought some much needed stuff for the new house, like a bed (I'm sleeping in my guest bedroom), a sofa, a desk for my computer (I'm using the laptop instead of the desktop), or a vacuum cleaner.

And now you're saying, hm, Liz, the title of this is the January Carnival of Children's Literature?

I'm just making excuses for why I haven't participated in a Carnival for a couple of months, or done a Poetry Friday in ages.

So go check out the January Carnival at Wizards Wireless; I'm not in it, but I look forward to visiting all my blog friends and seeing what's up.

Congrats on finishing the edits, Liz!

Liz, you're an animal! (And not just because you don't sleep in a bed.)

Good job on the edits and the move and ALA and everything else! Enjoy your Printz reading this year!

Wow! You've been busy! (I hope things calm down a bit soon!)
