Jolie Stekly interviews Karen Cushman!
Okay, here is the evil that is Publishers Marketplace. If you sign up and frequent the Deals section, you find out many years before a book is out that a book is coming out. And if you read that Karen Cushman has a book coming out about alchemy and a character named Meggy Swann and you are an illustrator... well, all your illustrator nerves start to tingle and drive you crazy -- wondering JUST WHAT that cover will look like. Remember that Trina Schart Hyman (one of my heroes) did many of Karen's covers? Any chance this new cover has the spirit of Trina about it? And if you are an illustrator, when you get to CuppaJolie's exclusive SCBWI TEAM BLOG pre-conference interview Question Number Five -- well, your cover-art-spidey senses will go nuts.
Here's the link to CuppaJolie's fabulous interview.
