From the earth to the moon, that's what's on my blog this week.
Monday:  I've unearthed some helpful information on writing and publishing children's picture books--which is good because I have two to place. I'll share this information with you Monday.
Friday:  Author of The Best Place on Earth (short story collection), Ayelet .Tsabari, interviewed.
'As soon as I knew the alphabet I started to write stories and poems, so I guess I never really chose it.' -writes Ayelet Tsabari.
I hope you can join us this week. It'll be fun. : )
