Where does the time go right now? Goodness, I’m not sure. But I wanted to update everyone on a few things that are going on around here. SO, here we go:
- Do you have a plane lover in your family? My hubby is an air traffic controller, and he wants my daughter to love planes. Her favorite book (she’ll be 3 in October) is currently Usborne Look Inside an Airport. It is a really cool book with OVER 160 flaps to lift and explore. I had to ban it from bedtime because it took FOREVER, and she seemed to get more stimulated than settle down. But again, I highly recommend it for a travel/transportation unit or for a plane lover in your family. You can find out more about Usborne books here: http://www.usborne.com/catalogue/in-a-shop.aspx
- I am interviewed over at Ann Schwarz’s blog today! We discuss historical fiction and my book, Finding My Place: One Girl’s Strength at Vicksburg for kids who are 9 to 12. I am her first ever author interview, and I am thrilled. Please visit and check it out here: http://annschwarzwriter4kidults.blogspot.com/2013/09/an-interview-with-author-margo-dill-on.html
- Finally, I’m teaching a NEW class at WOW! Women On Writing titled: Write Your Novel with a Writing Coach. We are trying something a bit different and formatting the class to fit the students who are signed up. It’s perfect for someone who is trying to write a novel, stuck in the middle, or who really wants to write but has no idea where to start. This first 4-week session starts on 9/6.

So, what are you up to?
