And on to saner things, plus Book Giveaway update

The GREEN MAGIC I proposal left at the beginning of the week, unmentioned and unlauded, but done at last to my satisfaction. HAWKSPAR is unresolved–I won’t know anything more about it until I hear back from my agent, Robin.

And I am in the midst of happier–much happier–things. THE RUBY KEY, you see, felt short to my Scholastic editor, and since the thing I wanted most when I sent it in was more room to write it, and since all the things she asked if I could expand were things I had kept very tight for length reasons originally, I’m now coming up with cool, exciting ways to get all the stuff in there that I had to leave out initially.


Along with that, I got the last two US book boxes out the door this morning. My one paid-for foreign box will go tomorrow. The plastic things came in, finally. Turns out I had to have them, but because I do the postage online, I didn’t need the freakin’ forms.




You can now use the PayPay button at the top left to pay the shipping on your box of books. Postage to England, Australia, and all other UK addresses is 36.15, which includes one dollar toward PayPal fees and tape and packing peanuts. Shipping to Canada is $22.85, also including one extra dollar.


I have boxes. But now I’m waiting for packing tape and a big bag of packing peanuts in order to get everything else out the door, so it will probably be next week before I get any additional boxes packed.


Maybe enough to finish off the first list, but probably not. Barring some loaves-and-fishes miracle, not enough to get anyone who isn’t on the first list.

    Thanks so much, Holly! I just paid you. The payment will come from “Elizabeth Cooper” — my PayPal account has all the shipping information, but please contact me if you need anything else.

    Thanks again!

    That is fantastic news about The Ruby Key – I was loving the story. I’ve noticed that the youth books published by Scholastic are getting longer and longer. We fantasy loves adore a good, long read. Bravo and good luck.

    At least something is going right for you. And about time too, I’d say. Good luck with The Ruby Key. I hope it ends up being the book you want it to be.

    I love he boldness with which you write: “Postage to England, Australia, and all other UK addresses” while the earth revolves a little faster to accomodate you. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Seriously, I’m sorry about the Hawkspar mess and hope your agent gets to sort it out for you, and congratulations on the extensions for Ruby Key! ๐Ÿ™‚
