News always seems to come in spurts. Nothing…nothing…nothing…and then–HELLO! This week has been like that.
1. The first review of MY SORT OF FAIRY TALE ENDING is in! And Kirkus liked it! For those of you who don’t know, Kirkus is notoriously tough in their reviews, so the fact that they enjoyed all three of the books in the series is beyond exciting. Here are some highlights:
“Plenty of laughs follow Jenny the Adventurer as she concludes her trilogy of comic quests in Fairy Land…Staniszewski’s ear for humor remains keen…It’s all great fun for middle school fantasy fans.”
2. If you simply can’t wait until November 5th to get a peek at MY SORT OF FAIRY TALE ENDING, you’re in luck. The first chapter is now available for your reading pleasure.

3. Look what arrived on my doorstep yesterday. Why yes, that is the Break These Rules anthology that my awesome agent-mate Luke Reynolds put together (and nicely asked me to be in). And it is full of big-time young adult authors. And the proceeds do go to the Children’s Defense Fund. And, clearly, my dog is thrilled about the whole thing.
4. Lastly, I have a big illustrator announcement to make for the LITTLE ROBOT books, but I can’t spill the beans just yet. Hopefully I’ll be able to do that soon!
