New Cordell offerings at ALA this weekend!

No I will not be at ALA annual in Las Vegas this weekend, but you will!

I do love this conference, but I'm not going to be there this year. If you are going, I hope you will take time to stop by the Disney-Hyperion booth (#603) to ask about my February 2015 picture book, WISH. I hope you will take time to stop by the Macmillan Children's booth (#522) to ask about my April 2015 picture book with the awesome Philip C. Stead, SPECIAL DELIVERY.

I don't know a whole lot beyond that. I do know that some copies of f+g's of WISH are going to be given out at the annual (and superfun!) Disney-Hyperion preview event. If you are invited to that, grab one!

I hate to miss it, but if you're going, please check these two books out. I'm so proud of them both and can't wait to get them out in the world!

Bring Back The Blog!

I have no idea if blogs of this nature are relevant or checked or followed at all anymore with the onslaught of social media. This one here has laid dormant for long stretches of time, as I neglected it and wondered about such things. No more! I've officially decided that henceforth, anything I post on Facebook and/or Twitter that has any general amount of substance, I shall also post on my blog! Starting now.

What follows are drawings I did just for fun. Not on assignment, under contract, commission, etc.. I like to, whenever she will allow it, sit down with my 5-year-old daughter and just draw. Usually with her Crayola crayons or markers, that's the way I like it. Last several times I've done this, this Mouseknight has materialized on my paper. Not that it really matters, but I fancy this Mouseknight a lady Mouseknight. A la (perhaps) Brienne of Tarth.

What does it mean? Will this turn into a book? Maybe. Maybe not. For now... bring forth the Mouseknight!
