I'm back from PLA, the Public Library Association conference that is held every two years. It is always a great conference with useful programs that inform, excite, and invigorate me. I was fortunate enough to present with Susan Fictleberg, author of Encountering Enchantment and Bonnie Kunzel, my co-author on Fluent in Fantasy, 2nd ed. and Strictly Science Fiction. We have so much fun presenting together, I'm hoping we are invited to speak at other conferences.
In less than two weeks (March 31) I'll be presenting at the Colorado Teen Literature Conference


Today is not only the first day of Spring but the book birthday of Chronal Engine: A Prehistoric Time-Travel Adventure by Greg Leitich Smith. It is this week's featured book of the week but because I read it in January it shows up 4th in the Books of the Week widget in the right hand column.
Still no luck on a new web editor. I tried out a couple but didn't like them so I'm back to just doing plain old html again. I'll have to figure out how long I am paid up for with my web host and maybe consider just switching to Tumblr, Blogger, SquareSpace, or something like that. What do you recommend? email me with advice: dherald (at) mac (dot) com
Happy Reading
