Dear Lanesha, would you like to post an excerpt from my debut historical novel, The Democrat, or alternatively, publish a short article on historical writing? Olly Wyatt
Congratulations and good luck with your novel! Any interest in writing historical fiction for children? Just let me know.
Hi! I work at Scholastic Book fairs, and I was excited to see that Ninth Ward is on our schematic for fall. It was such an awesome book!
My goodness! I’m glad to hear that too! And I’m so glad you enjoyed Ninth Ward. My children used to love it when the Scholastic Book fair came to town. What a wonderful program. Thanks for commenting!
All the best,
I loved Ninth Ward when I read it last year and am glad to know about your blog. I missed getting a chat with you at Barnes & Nobel at Desert Ridge a few weeks ago. You and Michelle were deep in conversation but I did catch Michelle before she left. Our writing group is there every Tuesday from 3 to 4:30 if you ever want to stop in.
Loving your blog, Cindi
I’m loving your blog. Wanted to see if you’d like to speak tp Phoenix Writers Club once again. I’m booking speakers for 2013 and have February to May open right now. We still meet the third Saturday of each month, from noon to 2, at the Bluewater Grill on Camelback in Phoenix. We pay a stipend of $50 and lunch and you are welcome to bring your books to sell. Let me know if this would work for you as you are always an engaging and energetic speaker and lots of fun! Thanks so much, Cindi
Perhaps you might want to consider adding Gone to Meet the British to your list of recommended Revolutionary War novels for young adults. The author is Gregory Edgar, and the illustrator is Todd Gerlander. It won 1st place in the historical fiction category of the 2010 Premier Book Awards contest for small US presses.
I’ll definitely check out Gone to Meet the British. I can put it on my list or give it a review. Thanks for visiting the blog! I look forward to reading the book.
My name is Tom O’Callaghan and I am from the media and communications unit at La Trobe University in Australia.
I thought you might get a kick out this media release on David Beagley, who mentions your blog.

Oh my goodness thank you so much for bringing this article to my attention! I’m a huge fan of David Beagley’s podcast as well as his work in children’s literature. We need more academics like him! Again, I can’t thank you enough.
