Happy Holidays! BUY BOOKS!

I've been mostly blogging over at Bound this month, but look here soon for some exciting pre-conference interviews with SCBWI Winter Conference faculty.

Fellow Team Blog member CuppaJolie is doing a fun twitter interview with Jenn Bailey tomorrow!

So are you done shopping? Because BOOKS make a great gift. Whatever format suits you -- ebooks, audio books, paperback, hardcover, pop up, scratch and sniff. Books are easy to wrap, too.

At Bound I made ten holiday gift guides and am still thinking of a few stocking stuffer idears. The Mysteries Gift Guide is my favorite because it includes treats to match the book.

If you need to buy:

Holiday Books

Impressive Coffee Table Books


Little Kids

Middle Kids






Stocking Stuffer for Sillies

Stocking Stuffer for Beginning Scientists

SCBWI TEAM BLOG - New Speaker Added!

Good news! Jane Yolen has been added to the 11th Annual SCBWI International Winter Conference speaker list.

You know Jane. She's a very giving writing teacher/mentor and an American Children's Book Legend -- awards, doctorates, THREE HUNDRED BOOKS. She's the reason the phrase 'Git her done' was invented. Jane gits it DONE. Wouldn't you like to be more like Jane? I know I would. Maybe she'll let us in on some of her secrets to being so productive (I think, for starters, she suggests doing something that rhymes with shmottom in shmair...)

Come see her in New York in January! There's still time to sign up for early bird registration here.
