New book: Detour Ahead!
Hello again, to those who know me, and if not, then nice to meet you! Until recently I had taken a long hiatus from updating any sort of blog or website. And for the past year I haven’t been on social media much either. What have I been doing? Well, writing for one thing!
It has been a five year journey for this book to come into the world. I actually met my co-author Pamela Ehrenberg online in 2016, but the stars aligned and we began to write together in January 2017. Many drafts later, in July 2020, we got an offer from PJ Publishing to not only publish our middle grade book which came to be titled DETOUR AHEAD, but to make it available through PJ Our Way, their non-profit literacy and book distribution program for families raising Jewish children. More than a year later in August 2021, the book deal was announced in Publisher’s Weekly, and I could finally share the news. Behind the scenes it was time to go back to work on revisions, this time with our editor. Finally this month, January 2022, we got to reveal the book’s beautiful cover to everyone. (I love it so much.)
I can’t wait for you to “meet” Gilah and Guillermo so now I’m just keeping busy with organizing everything for my first “book birthday” on April 1, 2022.
As part of the celebration, Pamela and I will probably be doing some fun giveaways and such, so if you want to be kept in the loop, please subscribe to this blog to be notified of updates.
Thanks for reading!
