Another book is born

Yesterday a few early copies of Sprinkles and Secrets arrived in the mail.

Yay! I'm sososososoSO excited about this book, mostly because of all the wonderful notes I've gotten from young readers who have enjoyed It's Raining Cupcakes. I worked hard on this book to make it another fun read about Sophie and Isabel. See, this is me saying, I worked hard, I REALLY hope you like it!

I have to say, though, when I got the package, it was hard to open up the book, because I knew something inside was going to make me tear up. Back in January, my editor had asked me to submit the acknowledgements and dedication. At that time, my friend Lisa Wolfson (Madigan) was fighting for her life. I was hoping for a miracle, and I really believed she would see this dedication when the book came out. Sadly, as some of you know, she lost her life to pancreatic cancer in February.

Here's the dedication:

Yes, the musical WICKED is a part of the book. And that's all I'm going to say, because, you have to read it, of course!!!!

I have to say, seeing your words made into a beautiful book never, ever gets old. I'm really proud of this book and can't wait until it's out in the world for kids to enjoy!!!


  1. Such a cute cover. Congratulations!

  2. I so can't wait for this one, and I know my daughter can't either. Congrats!!!

  3. Congratulations! My daughter just picked up It's Raining Cupcakes yesterday and it's on the top of her TBR pile. Still I'm hoping to get to it before she does!

  4. So cute! I have It's Raining Cupcakes in my school library and I always have lots of girls asking for "that pink cupcake book" so I can't wait to get this one and put it out. :)

  5. Thank you everyone, SO much, for your support! It really means a lot!!
