Here’s this week’s . . .
REGIONAL AUTHOR SPOTLIGHT!
The first page of one of Kerry’s picture book manuscripts was read during the first page panel at the summer regional conference. Stephen Fraser loved it, so she followed up by sending him the whole manuscript. He agreed to represent Kerry, and she is thrilled and grateful to SCBWI!
(I love hearing this, seeing how we’ve been discussing first pages!)
Kerry has also started a new blog recently called Picture Books & Pirouettes. She reviews picture books about dance and include other posts about integrating dance and children’s literature. Check it out by clicking here!
Congratulations, again, Kerry. HOW AWESOME! I look forward to seeing that first page. 🙂

Have a great weekend, everyone. Let’s be our own person!
