Penguin Summer Catalog

There is a scene in the movie, "The Jerk," where Steve Martin runs around all excited because he has discovered that his name is in the phone book.

Well, I'm kinda feeling that way now, because The Penguin Young Readers Group summer catalog is out this week, and I'm on page 60, sandwiched between a teen vampire series and a young adult novel about a girl who goes blind. Yikes. Apparently "How About a Kiss For Me?" is among the softer, less angst-ridden of Penguin's summer releases.

I'm sure the thrill will wear off eventually, but for now I'm going to milk it for all it's worth.


  1. Todd this is so fantastic!!! Congratulations!!!! Can't wait to buy it and read it to my little people (Lillian, 2, and Teddy, due in March). Keep writing.

  2. Hell, I'm feeling excited about the catalog just 'cause I know you!!
