I found a big soft envelope by my front door this afternoon. Inside were the very first proofs for our next book, Say Hello! to be published by Beach Lane Books. The experience of putting this book together has been dreamy, and now here's proof––in color––that the dream's coming true.

|Joanne's newest book, Fleabrain Loves Franny|
So here's a snippet of conversation to make up for the missing photo:
Joanne: It's bizarre that you two live right across the street from each other and share the same agent.
Deb: Well, Linda was kind enough to send my manuscript to Rubin.
me: I didn't do it to be kind. I'm not kind.
Joanne: I know! I know! People have this idea that people who write children's books are kind!

Mary Ann told me what radio station to tune into so I could hear the second game of the World Series as I walked. Halfway through my route, though, the battery on my phone died. Maybe that was just as well. But that meant my camera died, too–– and the sunset was beyond spectacular. Also, that meant my phone died, so that when Tom called to say the hotdogs were ready and waiting, I didn't even know. So there I was: radio-less, camera-less, and phone-less. Just me and the beautiful sky.
