Dorks in Blighty


Penguin's British edition of King Dork officially comes out on August 2nd (though it has had an early release in Australia, as I understand it.) I just got a copy in the mail, as you can see.

It appears that they are giving away ten copies via this podcast, in case anyone's interested.

Silling the Sezzle

By the way, I'm going to be doing the King Dork song and dance at Book Passage's Children's Writers & Illustrators Conference in Corte Madera. Reading, playing, Qs and As, that sort of thing. Free and open to the public, they tell me.

Saturday, July 28, 7:30 PM.

51 Tamal Vista Blvd., Corte Madera, CA 94925 (415) 927-0960

Also by the way, I have been a big fan of Zilpha Keatley Snyder ever since stumbling on The Egypt Game when I was very small, and it turns out she's on the "faculty", too. So I'm really hoping to bump into her in the teachers' lounge and get her autograph or babble something incoherent at her or something...

Oh no, not another one...

I'm afraid the slow pace of posts on this blog may continue for a bit longer, but there is one piece of news that might interest anyone who does happen to stop by, which is that I have reached an agreement with Random House to publish King Dork Approximately, following Andromeda Klein.
