Spring Break's Over... and Another Award Nom!

Wyatt and MacKenzie went skiing -- at Willamette Pass -- for the first time over Spring Break! Watching the video of Kenzie going down the hill faster than fast, in an unswerving straight line, reminded me of the first few years of publishing. You fly by the seat of your pants, optimistic you'll make it to the end without getting too badly injured. To hell with the snow plow, who needs to stop? But now, if I were skiing instead of publishing, I think I'd be gracefully slaloming down the hill, avoiding pitfalls only visible to the keen, experienced eye, and not choosing hills that look too good to be true. Okay... so there's my segue.

Meanwhile, back in the Wyatt-MacKenzie offices we are thrilled to announce another ForeWord Magazine Book-of-the-Year nomination! Deb Dunham's (self-esteem guru!) TWEEN YOU & ME. It's one of MacKenzie's favorite books we've published -- the first specially for the tween market.
