on my desk monday


So this is another new experience...books ABOUT me vs by me! Yes, it's a Grace Lin biography! I got a sneak peek of this book during my school visit in Bristol, but I was happily surprised to receive some copies from the publisher recently.

I'm so honored to be a part of this author biography series! When my friend Janet Wong had a similar book  (by a different publisher) produced about her, I was in awe. I remember thinking, "I guess that is when you know you've made it!" Which is why I  am having a hard time now believing there is a book about me.   In this series,  am along side such amazing authors such as Jeff Kinney and Christopher Paul Curtis! Pinch me!

That's exciting - and yes,even without that marker, I would say you've "made it" :-)

Pinch-pinch! (gentle pinches, good for your circulation) Congratulations--this book is long overdue! (and thank you for mentioning mine, too)
