2010 Wrap-Up

2010 went by way too fast and my List of Links really grew.

In 2010 MERMAIDS ON PARADE was officially on the map, A Literary Map of Brooklyn.

In 2010 I submitted picture book proposals,

and wrote articles,
Talking Story Blog
Hunger Mt. VCFA Journal of the Arts
My Word Playground
SCBWI NY Metro "Say YES with Dan Yaccarino"

and presented Children's Lit programs.

In 2010 I was interviewed by The Got Story Countdown.

Some people even wrote about me here and there.

In 2010 I became a curator and organized the Women's History Month Celebration,

and signed books under the Manhattan Bridge at the Dumbo Parents Organization Stoop Sale.

In 2010 more neighborhood stores sold my books.

In 2010 I took part in Kelly Light's Ripple Auction, Dan Santat's 826LA Auction,

and the Dumbo Arts Festival representing Superfine. I also read and signed books at the annual Atlantic Antic representing the store Gumbo.

In 2010 the Drawn In Brooklyn Exhibition began. I signed books for the Brooklyn Public Library at the Brooklyn Book Festival,

presented a mermaid tail making crafts program,

was in a video (see it here),

signed my books for the Drawn In Brooklyn Family Day,

and was completely thrilled when the Time Out Kids NY editor said my name on TV during the CBS Morning News. She also said that MERMAIDS ON PARADE was her "favorite" book!

Our exhibition art was in the New York Daily News and the New York Times,

and there were even exhibition posters down in the subway ;)

In 2010 I also took part in the Public Library's 24 Hour Read-In,

the Halloween Librarian Zombie march across the Brooklyn Bridge,

and The Brooklyn Museum Children's Book Fair.

In 2010 I was a celebrity judge.

To wrap up 2010 I signed books at the Brooklyn Friends Winter Festival.

I am extremely grateful for 2010. To start 2011 off right I rested!
