Beth Miller from Writers House, a delightful woman who puts up with my nonsense on a regular basis, gave an informative online interview and Q&A here. She offers a lot of excellent tips that will be valuable to those of you who are looking for an agent. (Beth does lovely things for her authors like e-mailing me today to let me know that Evermore hit the Times extended list again; it came in at #30 this time around.)
I'm juggling bowling balls and chainsaws this week. We've got finals, science projects to turn in, family in the hospital (nothing serious) to visit and incoming weekend guests to welcome. Somewhere in there is a vet appointment for the pup and an eye exam for me. Not at the vet, but maybe I can talk him into doing it to save me some road time. I mean, I just have to look at a chart and tell him what letters I see, right? And I usually don't bite.
The results of my daughter's science project experiments proved that Puffs Ultra is the strongest facial tissue wet or dry on the market, and Puffs Plus Lotion is the softest. Yes, you heard it here first. We also now have enough boxes of tissues here to mop up every nose in America, Canada and possibly Mexico.
If your offspring are knocking out the science project this week and need to put a bar (or other) graph on their board, the National Center for Educational Statistics has a kid-friendly Create A Graph generator that makes beautiful, correctable, printable graphs.
