The Always Team is out in the world now, and less than 3 months after its debut, is very close to being sold out -- seems many people want a children's book about the Saskatchewan Roughriders (even if the 'Riders didn't take this year's Grey Cup back to Regina).
The day before the Grey Cup (November 27) was spent at the second annual Calgary Children's Book Fair and Conference, held at the Hillhurst Sunnyside Community Hall. It was a great turn out of participants and attendees.
The organizers of this wonderful event are YA novelist Simon Rose, children's writer Val Walker (of Hedley the Hedgehog fame), editor Pat Kozak, designer Nic Burman and me.
Next on my plate is a children's non-fiction picture book by author Judy Kirton-- title TBA. We're aiming for a spring 2011 delivery date. Fingers crossed!
