First International Red Panda Day!

I love pandas, and am quite partial to my fellow redheads, so I was intrigued when my talented friend Leeza Hernandez told me about the red panda. She is currently shopping around a fabulous book she's written about this adorable, endangered creature, and has gotten quite involved with the nonprofit organization The Red Panda Network.

So, if any of you live near Flemington, NJ, stop by the Hunterdon County Library this Saturday, November 13, from 10:00am to noon to meet Leeza and join her in some family-friendly activities celebrating and raising awareness for the lovely firefox (that's another name for the red panda--cool, huh?).

If you can't make the event, Leeza is selling a commemorative pin that she designed, and 100% of the proceeds will go to The Red Panda Network.

And the winner is . . .

Thanks to my five (: P) lovelies for voting. I wrote out all of your names (and, boy, is my hand tired), dropped them into a hat (well, actually, a gift bag I had on hand), and drew out . . . Nancy K! Nancy, e-mail me your mailing address and I will send you your very own L'Editrice-stamped copy of Forget-Her-Nots!

And what stamp did I decide on, you ask? Well, despite the overall love for bee, I decided to go with the French one--I just felt its layout would work best for the text I am going to input in. But I'm going to try to incorporate bees somewhere else, because I just love them.

Bzzzzz (or should I say, Bises),

A score with SCORE!

I'm honored to announce that one of my clients, Miranda Kenneally, has gotten herself a book deal! I will let her tell you all about it in her own fabulous words.

Miranda is such a prolific writer with such great range that Score is just one of several manuscripts I've worked with Miranda on over the past year or so. I just know that the others are going to get snatched up soon as well.

Also, take a moment to surf on over to Sourcebooks Fire, the cool new imprint Miranda's book is being published under, and check out the entire Sourcebooks-at-large's amazing founding story. (I'm having difficulty linking to these right now, but they are worth Googling.) Inspired yet?

P.S. Stay tuned this weekend, when I'll (finally) announce the results of my first-ever survey and contest! (Meaning: it's not to late to enter!)
