I Have a Coin

I Have a Coin I have a coin I deem a treasure.One side bears the sign of extinction,And the other, an instance of nature.But it’s not a coin; it’s a seal,And the meaning of this distinctionIs the unbearable sadness I feelWith experience, or with closure. It seems like a double exposure,But the knowledge of impermanenceBleeds into the ideal likenessOf mortality in its eminence—To yield a vibrant pictureOf a creature’s essential brightnessAs it burns for life without censure. --Rob NeufeldSee More

Hidden Scars - Sam Blackman and Black Mountain College

I don't know if this is true for my fellow writers, but proofing can be the most difficult part of the process.  I received the ARC today for October's Sam Blackman Mystery and will begin the last review for typos or formatting errors that have eluded my editor, my copy editor, and myself.  Amazing that there is always something that the brain "fixes" and we don't see.Hope springs eternal that the October release will be typo-free.  The mystery is set against the historic backdrop of Black…See More

Profile Information

Reading Preference:
I spend a lot of time reading children's books, as that is my business, but I can't blame it all on work. A good book is a good book, regardless. I enjoy books that give me a fresh perspective, make me care about the characters, or just yank me out of my everyday life. I am not a huge fan of fantasy, but if the writing is strong and I care about the characters, I can be won over. I read mostly fiction. The non-fiction I read tends to be business oriented or personal essays or memoir. In the store we stock books that will have lasting appeal--classics and future classics.
Favorites:
Kevin Henkes, J.K Rowling, Madeleine L'Engle, Kerry Madden, Allan Wolf, Jon. J. Muth, Robert McCloskey, Hope Larson...

Wordless Picture Books

I have been extremely happy to help a couple of different customers in the last few weeks who have come in to the bookshop specifically looking for wordless picture books. Why so happy? Because over the last eight years I have generally found that wordless picture books, no matter how visually stunning, hilarious or touching or award-winning, can be a really tough sell.

And that's a shame.

Now, I should be quick to point out that there is no lack of interest in these books on…
