10/2/09 — Today marks the end of a week at home, which has been extremely busy, but productive. I made some good progress on REVENGE OF THE MUTANT UNDERWEAR. And am filling my calendar with school visits.
Some sad news came my way, too, though: My middle grade novel, THE EYE OF THE STONE, is going out of print, another casualty of the economic downturn. As a writer, I know this kind of thing is inevitable. Still, it’s hard, a bit like a death in family. But such is the writing life. All things must pass. It was fun while it lasted, and a great learning experience writing the book.
