A week of firsts

The last week has seen a number of firsts for me–on the first day of summer and the hottest day in Boston this year, in temps between 95 and 97 degrees, I ran my first 5K (after 9 weeks of a walk/run program). My goal was to cross the finish line. I did…and I wasn’t last!  I’ve never been so hot in my life! Also, my first short article on creating a book trailer is in Hope Clark’s terrific Funds for Writers newsletter. You can find it here: http://www.fundsforwriters.com/FFW.htm
And today my picture book Silly Frilly Grandma Tillie won its first award–the 2012 Gelett Burgess Children’s Book Award for a picture book with a multigenerational theme. You can read about the award here:
