A sweet day

I made these applesauce cupcakes (the recipe is in the back of the book):

and received these from my family:

because today is the official release day of this:

For a delicious blog post with lots of beautiful cupcakes and a very sweet review, head over to Jama's blog and tell her your favorite kind of cupcake for a chance to win one of two copies!!!

This day is a dream come true for me. I've dreamt of having a middle-grade novel on the shelves for a VERY long time. And the ten-year-old Lisa who loved to bake and dreamt of traveling, like Isabel (the main character), is pretty darn happy today too.


  1. EEP! Congratulations, Lisa. Soak it all in. Today is your day!


  2. I'm raising a toast to you (apple cider, perhaps?) today. It is sweet, indeed.

  3. CONGRATULATIONS!!! I <3 cupcakes. Apple sauce cupcakes? Mmm yummy! Pleas check out my book blog:


  4. AAHH! Happy release day!!! You are a rock star, Lisa!!! Will you please consider doing an interview with us one of these days? We'd love to have you!!!

  5. Congratulations, Lisa! This is so wonderful. :]

  6. HURRAY!!! I am sooooo happy for you Lisa! You are living the dream. I'm thrilled to hear the recipe for those cupcakes is in the back of the book. :-)

  7. I must have one of those cupcakes!
