I am getting my New Year off to a great start! I am really excited to tell you that I got a monthly column in a local news paper! Sorry I waited to tell you, but I wanted it to be published online before saying anything AND it was just published!! I met Michelle Buono, the Content Coordinator of the Upper Bucks Free Press, at a book signing I went to and she asked to talk with me after I got done interviewing the author (Wynne Marshall author of The Tree Monkeys) that the book signing was for. I was kind of nervous to talk to Ms. Buono, but she was really nice and said that I “impressed” her with my interview and she asked me to submit something to her newspaper! Then, after Ms. Buono talked to her editor, they asked me to send in an article every month! I decided that I should submit my interview with Mrs. Marshall as my first article because she is a local author and I think I will try to write about local authors and book events for the paper (unless there is some huge event going on). You can see my very first article at the Upper Bucks Free Press website by clicking HERE (it’s the January 2012 issue -page 16 and there is a write-up about me being a new contributor on page 15 😉 ).
Thanks for letting me share AND for taking the time to read my blog! Now I’m going to bed 😉 Zzzz
