Now All I Need Is A Title

So it seems that I've sold another novel:
Children's Young Adult: Varian Johnson’s UNTITLED companion novel to the forthcoming SAVING MADDIE, again to Stephanie Elliott at Delacorte, by Sara Crowe at Harvey Klinger, NA
As you can see from the Publisher's Marketplace blurb, we decided to go with the "less-is-more" option. For right now, all I can say is that the book will be written from Madeline's POV, and...well, that's about it. More details to come later, probably after Saving Maddie is released (March 9th, 2010).

Sorry for all the vagueness...but to make up for it, I'm thinking about giving away my last, lone, final ARC of Saving Maddie. Stay tuned to the blog, Facebook, or Twitter for details....

I'm supposed to be writing...

...but instead I'm watching Youtube videos from my college years. This stepshow is a parody of the old Kung Fu movies we grew up watching. And yes, I'm in there...
