As promised, here are some pictures from the Houston Called-to-Teach Homeschool Convention!
I had such a good time. I got to talk with homeschool families. I got to talk about all the wonderful Chicken Scratch Books (I’ve read all of them now except the most recent release, but my copy is all queued up!). I got to encourage kids in their writing passion. I got to help make chicken bookmarks!
I talked lots with friend, editor, and publisher, Kiri Jorgensen (especially since our flight was delayed around seven hours . . .). It was so encouraging and fun. I hadn’t gotten to talk shop in quite awhile. And then I got to know Kelli McKinney. Her middle grade novel from Chicken Scratch Books comes out in October. It sounds like so much fun, and I can’t wait to read it.
I also met some other authors who had booths at the event and learned about different curricula options. Our booth was next-door to Right Start Math, about which I’ve heard wonderful things.
I also signed lots of books, which has been one of my dreams. A signed book from the author can be so special. I’m so happy I can give that specialness to so many kids.
