Winners and Other Awesome Stuff

We have a winner! The winner of the gorgeously illustrated book, Baba Yaga and Vasilisa the Brave, is Shelley Moore Thomas! Who happens to be the author of an upcoming Middle Grade masterpiece, The Seven Tales of Trinket. Oh my goodness, if you love fairy tales, you MUST read this book. So amazing.



Yay, Shelley! Now send me your address and I’ll ship the precious off to you.

In other news… supposedly The Sinister Sweetness of Splendid Academy is one of Apple ibooks’ Best of August! Which is so cool, and I believe it since my editor sent me a screen shot of the page that says so… only I can’t seem to find it on my ibooks page. I’ll just show you all the cool screen shot. See? Isn’t that nifty? I’m very excited!

Now, it’s back to the kitchen for me – I’m halfway through the first 300 cupcakes. Did I ever mention I bake when I’m stressed? Um, yeah. Sort of jittery down here in Texas…

    I am so excited that I won!! I’ve not won anything on a blog in AGES! (That’s the fun part of blogging!) My class is going to love it, I am sure.

    I think class is almost in session at The Splendid Academy….


    P.S. Dude…300 cupcakes??? Wow.
