You’ve Asked me About the Next Book

I have some big news that I’ve been holding on to for a week or so. Deep breath…I have a new book deal!!

The book will be published with Roost Books, the publisher of my first book, TinkerLab: A Hands-on Guide for Little Inventors. I’m thrilled to work again with my very favorite editor, Jenn Urban-Brown and of course my amazing agent, Erica Silverman. These two women have been the most patient of friends and the best hand-holders as I built up enough energy to write another book.

Writing that first book was a huge learning experience, and one of the things I came to understand is that it’s no small undertaking. I drafted a proposal for book #2 almost as soon as the last one was released, and then I held off for fear that I’d actually have to write the book! Ha.

In any case, I’m now ready for it. My younger daughter will be in a few more hours of school this fall, which should give me more time to flesh it all out.

I can’t say too much about the book just yet, but I’ll share a few photos from my proposal to give you a sense of where it’s heading.
