Title: BUSY EYED DAY released yesterday! WITH A BLOG PARTY!!!
Post by: Anne Marie on April 11, 2018, 02:22 PM
My new picture book BUSY EYED DAY was released yesterday. Sendak Fellow Frann Preston-Gannon is the illustrator and the publisher is Beach Lane/Simon and Schuster.

Blogger/writer/SCBWI Dionna Mann is featuring the book in a week-long blog party on her blog, with an interview each day from me, my agent, the illustrator, the editor and the art director.  So far two are up. I hope you'll check them out!
