Over on BOUND, a holiday book list!


It is time already. Christmas, Hanukkah, Chrismukkah. Ye Olde Etsy Shoppe has holiday cards and prints.

On Bound for the next TEN days I'll be posting book gift guides. First up is Holiday Books!

Some books on the list are oldies but goodies. But some are newies:

My favorite Frazee Santa book, Kimmel goblins, Paschkis dreidels, Iwai's lights, Heiligman's awesome NG series, Snickety latkes, Watson-y Santa, Dickens ala Helquist ala, and a reissued Sedaris.

If you think I missed some titles, I hope you'll leave your suggestion in the post's comments!

Also: Just bought some eggnog for my Eggnogtopus (word on the street is a certain MoBro gets the nog delivered. Fancy!)

My lunch has no eyes

Or a smile. Why is my lunch so boring? Will this person make me lunch from now on? I also like how the watermark on her images are adorable fonts that add to the photo's charm on the left. Please adopt me, cuteobento.

In other news, Oprah spelled Stephenie Meyer's name wrong.

What the dickens?! I missed a Twilight spoof



Still processing what may be the best Fall Retreat yet, I was out on the Hood Canal this weekend for SCBWI WWA's Weekend on the Water.

Editors Cheryl Klein and Ruta Rimas ran the show. Retreat Coordinator CuppaJolie had 100 pounds of leftover Halloween candy to share. I had my electric blanket and wellies. Truly an amazing weekend for writers.

So I missed a few things while I was gone.

• The opening of A CHRISTMAS CAROL in 3stinkingD.

• An adorable TWILIGHT spoof.

See them both on Bound today.

Happiness is a warm puppy named Nubs

Kirby Larson's book event is this Saturday at Third Place Books for Nubs!

I'm so sad I will be out of town. Go, go, go, if you can.

Here's a post about the book on Bound.

I got five minutes with Eoin Colfer!

Read the interview here.

Lack of charm on my part:

1. I turned beet red for the whole interview.

2. I used my flip camera to record his audio only, so I wasn't paying attention at what I was recording visually, which was five minutes of Eoin's crotch. Nice one, Jaime!

Eoin's event in Seattle was with Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson. Together they are a Dynamic Trifecta.

Thanks to Eoin and Hyperion Disney and MSN Entertainment for the opportunity.
