A this and that post

Congratulations to Lisa Madigan for her starred review of FLASH BURNOUT in Booklist. It's so well deserved and I'm thrilled for her!!

Also, congratulations to Jo Knowles for the release of her book, JUMPING OFF SWINGS, which I loved. It also received a starred review, from Publisher's Weekly!

The stars are shining brightly this week, huh?

My web site has a new look - nothing terribly fancy, but hopefully easy on the eyes and simple to navigate. http://lisaschroederbooks.com

I have a few pictures from SCBWI to share, plus Kimberley Little asked if I would share what I learned in the session about Scholastic book fairs and book clubs. I thought I might do that this afternoon, but it's my last day off before I go back to work, and, well, I realized when I started typing, I'm tired. So I'm going to curl up and watch a movie this afternoon before we go on a walk in the nature park in a couple of hours. So look tomorrow for a final conference post. If there's anything specific you want to know about, like how hilarious Shelli Johannes is in person (answer: very!), let me know before I start working on that post tonight.
