So I opened my email the other day and there's the announcement that SHEEP won a California Young Reader Medal. How cool is that?? I had this great plan to take myself to Opal where I celebrated (by myself with a glass of Chardonnay) the publication of my first novel but, fool that I am, got caught up in errands and marketing, stopping by Chaucer's where I got a big hug and many congrats. SHEEP is now in paper and on the table in the children's section. I'll be doing a signing there on June 2. It's so interesting that this is a book my publisher wasn't crazy to have. This is Border collie vindication all the way! Now I want to write a sequel. Son of Sheep??? Maybe Daughter of Sheep with a feminist slant. Ah, yes, I can see it all now. . .
