So far it’s managed to rain the entire month of March. Seeing as I’m in California, that’s been a good thing. Our hills are green; our Sierras white. Other good things have happened this March, too. My daughter, my mother, and I recently traveled to Turlock for the state Rabbit and Cavy Convention (cavies are guinea pigs). My daughter shows her Netherland dwarf and does 4-H showmanship (where she’s judged on how she presents her rabbit), and we also got her a new rabbit: a broken baby Polish buck she has named Harlequin (broken refers to his color). He is darling.
Even more good things:
- The Smaller Evil got a beautiful blurb from the amazing Laura Ruby, for which I am very thankful. I admire her writing so very much, so it’s a huge honor for me that she had such nice things to say about my new book:
— Laura Ruby, Printz Award Winning Author of BONE GAP
- I’m doing an event this Friday evening at Books Inc. in San Francisco (Opera Plaza) with Veronica Rossi and Caragh O’Brien. Come see us!
- Finally, the paperback of Complicit releases today! I’m so excited for this edition to be out in the world. This book takes place in my own backyard, so it’s one I can’t help but think of often–when I look out at Mt. Diablo and the tule fog, or when I walk down College Avenue in Berkeley and see kittens in the pet store window. It’s close to home in so many ways, from proximity to adoption and much, much more.
Here’s to the rest of March and all its darling hares (and cavies)!
