1. I’m already beginning to think about publicity for my picture book, ME WITH YOU, that will be out with Philomel in May 2009. (It’s up on Amazon, though there’s no cover image yet and they’re supposed to change my name to Kristy from Kristin Dempsey.) This book celebrates grandparent/grandchild relationships (well, really it celebrates ANY wonderful relationship, but it will be illustrated by the wonderful Christopher Denise as a grandfather bear and granddaughter bear.) I’ll be in the States for six months out of 2009, perfect timing for publicity, but at times it seems quite overwhelming. One step at a time. I need to come up with good plans and then take it one step at a time. I should have another picture book out in Fall 2009 (MINI RACER, Bloomsbury) too, so hopefully I’ll be able to do a little publicity for it too before I head back to Brazil in January 2010.
2. The Olympics are over. The sheer variety of sports was very pleasing to my kids. My son is already thinking about London 2012. He says we’ll just have to be satisfied with watching ball games between now and then.
3. I don’t really have a third thing. But if I’m making a list it seems like I should have more than two things. Actually, if I’m making a list, the first thing on it should be CLEAN UP THE KITCHEN. So that’s what I’m off to do now…

I have to clean up my kitchen, too. 🙂
Me, too. But first I need to make a big mess and make Mulligatawny.
Ooh! Exciting! Congratulations! Let me know if you stop by in the Bay Area! 🙂
