As many of you know, I coordinate our posts here at www.TeachingAuthors.com. My responsibilities include sending out the monthly blogging schedule to all the TeachingAuthors. Unfortunately, there was an error in the last schedule I gave everyone. Because of my mistake, Mary Ann didn't know that today was her turn to post. Unfortunately, due to previous commitments, she won't be able to post. My apologies to everyone, but especially Mary Ann, for my mistake.
On Wednesday, I'll post the name of our giveaway winner, along with the official announcement of a brief break in our blogging schedule next month. The vacation comes none to soon for me. Juggling teaching, writing, blogging, meetings, and personal life has been more of a challenge than usual for me lately. I'm looking forward to a little time off. :-) Meanwhile, I'll share a few recent items of interest from the Kidlit blogosphere:
- In part two of Tips on How to Cope with Rejection, the Deescribewriting blog included a tip I had posted as a comment to part one.
- On Wednesday, June 23, the SCBWI Tri-Regions of Southern California Schmooze blog shared resources on getting published, included links to info on agents, editors, query letters, and synopses.
- This month, children's book editor Cheryl Klein has been sharing some helpful punctuation tips on her blog. I recommend everyone read her guidelines on using commas and also semi-colon usage.
