Mail is a lot like life, you get some good stuff and some bad stuff, and a lot of junk you don’t want.
Well, today I got both good news and bad news in my mailbox. First the bad news. Highlights Magazine rejected two submissions: a story about a boy who’s choosing a new topper for the family Christmas tree, and Halloween poems written in haiku. Phooey.
The good news is Junior Library Guild has designated my new trade book coming out in September – An Eye for Color: The Story of Josef Albers – as A Junior Library Guild Selection for Spring 2009! They even sent me a pretty certificate and lapel pin as proof. Thanks for the stamp of approval, JLG!
