[UPDATE] For some reason, I'm having a hard time hosting the KTNR image, here it is at a smaller size--or just link over to KTNR to see it. Also, hope you snagged one, because the $6 RAPUNZELs are gone, baby, gone.
Time for a break, everyone! A Monstermission. A Frankerlude? No, Monsterlude, Frankermission...? A break. I've been crunching some numbers. I think we can still end the book on Halloween, even if we take one day off.
I have some announcements and tidbits you may enjoy.
First, the good folks at KTNR (Kids Need to Read) have unveiled the cover art for the official KTNR 2012 Calendar! And guess who did it? It was me! Here's the link to KTNR's unveiling, and here is the artwork:
It is a "Book-Mo-Bot!" Bringing reading material to the post-apocalyptic countryside. I'll let everyone know when these calendars become available. There are a lot of great artists involved. I haven't seen any of the other images yet and I'm dying to. Head over to KTNR (linked above) for all kinds of cool stuff.
This Saturday is the Teen Book Fest at the Provo Library. If you've been to the Children's Book Fest, then you'll know how this should go. This is the first Teen Book Fest. There will be a whole bunch of Utah authors (you know 'em, you love 'em) and Special Guest, Scott Westerfeld, author of LEVIATHAN and UGLIES. I am going to be there doing an interactive, everyone-joins-in, large-sized, graphic novel thing. So come and join in. It should be very cool (and maybe not as noisy as the Kids Book Fest. Maybe.) So, Oct. 30th, Provo Library from 12-4. Scott's keynote will start at 12:00. I'm told author Jessica Day George will be in attendance dressed as the Tooth Fairy (I'm hoping she means dressed as Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson from that horrible movie The Tooth Fairy.)
