We just got back from San Diego about two hours ago, we drove all day. We forgot to empty the kitchen trash can, so the house STINKS. Anyway, Comic-Con was super, super fun.
RAPUNZEL'S REVENGE did not win the Eisner for "Best Graphic Novel for Teens/Tweens" the award went to Neil Gaiman's CORALINE graphic novel. But the nomination is enough for me--it was a big honor to be seated with all the other nominees and attend the ceremony. I got to meet a lot of great writers and illustrators, including Holly Black (the Spiderwick author), Jennifer Holm (the Babymouse author) Chris Schweizer (author of another Tween nominated book CROGAN'S VENGEANCE) and Mouse Guard creator, David Peterson. I even spent some time with some of the screenwriters working on THE DEVIL YOU KNOW movie.
Here's hoping for a CALAMITY JACK nomination, so I can go again.
I'm going to bed!
