Too many things to count on a Tuesday

Sorry I've been such a bad blogger lately. There's been a LOT going on.

- We moved Teen into her dorm room on Saturday. Of course, that night I dreamed about nursing (this dream might only make sense if you've ever been a nursing mother). It's a big change for all of us. Sniff!

- Last week, I heard from a Pennsylvania teen on FB. She wanted to know if there was a sequel to Girl, Stolen. We started messaging back and forth and this is what she told me: "To be honest, I was never, ever interested in books, or anything school related. I found Girl, Stolen in my school library, and the cover looked interesting, the one where she has her hands in front of her face. That was the first time I've ever read a book without being told to by a teacher. You've really inspired me to read, and now I'm taking home books from different libraries everyday! Thank you so much, I can't believe I've been missing out on books through out school, now I'm in love with them."

- If you like me, would you mind "liking me" on Facebook? http://www.facebook.com/AprilHenry

- I leave for the Writer Police Academy in North Carolina on Thursday.

- I have a bunch of deadlines and they keep getting closer. (Cue spooky music.)

- Look what just got highlighted in School Library Journal - The Night She Disappeared. http://www.slj.com/2012/09/books-media/read-watch-alikes/watch-and-read-spotlight-on-media-tie-ins-house-at-the-end-of-the-street-and-spine-tingling-thrillers-for-teens/
