Summer Blog Blast Tour, Featuring ME!

Exciting, exciting things today!

First of all, pop over to Elizabeth Bird’s blog, A Fuse #8 Production, where you will find an interview with me that is part of the Summer Blog Blast Tour 2009. I talk about The Rock and the River, my inspirations for writing it, people’s reactions to it, and lots of other stuff. Fun!

What is the Summer Blog Blast Tour, you ask? Excellent question! It appears that a group of KidLit bloggers have gotten together to do a series of interviews with interesting authors (if I do say so myself!). It’ll be going on all week. Colleen Mondor has posted a schedule for the week, plus links and sneak peeks, on Chasing Ray. I’m headed there now to check out the other interviews. For me, it’s already been lots of fun to be part of this special week – and it’s only just begun!

Okay….when you’re done with all that, take a peek at the Best Books for Young Adults nomination list, recently posted by the American Library Association. Guess who’s on it?? It’s so very exciting that The Rock and the River was chosen to be part of this group.

I’m all smiles today, friends!!!


  1. Hi Kekla!

    Just wanted to say that I enjoyed your interview at Fuse#8. As an aspiring writer of a middle-grade historical novel, it was very inspiring!

    I have a stack of MG & YA books checked out from the library and yours is one of them! Can't wait to read it now!


  2. Kekla,

    I forgot to say CONGRATULATIONS for making the Best Books for Young Adults nominations list. That’s awesome!
