rachel ray and toeshoe troubles

I suppose I should post something other than Sugar Plum Ballerinas news, but I don't really have any other news at the moment. Halloween is over, I'm loaded up with work as usual, and I'm trying to learn how to live in a world without dairy. Hallelujah there's no lactose in Diet Coke....

A bit short notice, Whoopi Goldberg will be on Rachel Ray promoting Sugar Plum Ballerinas on Tues, Nov 11.

And the cover for the second Sugar Plum book: Toeshoe Troubles, can now be seen at (or if you're really clever, you can see it in this very same blog!) For those who read the first book (it is a really cute book - go buy it!) that's Brenda on the cover, with her snotty cousin Tiffany.

#3 on the new york times

Just got the word, Plum Fantastic has debuted at #3 on next week's NYT bestseller list, in the children's paperback category.

How cool!

Also in Sugar Plum Ballerina news, book #2: Toeshoe Trouble, is planned for May 2009 release, and the third book to follow Winter 2010.

And finally, Barnes and Noble has a short little video interview with Whoopi Goldberg at their site. It shows a few of the interior illustrations.
