What’s to Come

7 Feb

calendar picSo what in the world can be so enthralling that could possibly keep me from the wonderful land of “Blog”? Oh…everything!  Holidays, field trips, laundry, house cleaning, sickness, and writing have sucked up my time like a vacuum.  But I wanted to fill you all in on what is on the calendar for Kristi & Dave Grimm so far in 2015. By the way, what in the world happened to January?  I am quite sure that I missed it! I can’t be the only one that feels that way…can I hear an AMEN!

I announced awhile back on my fb page that I have finally broadened my playing field and have written my first children’s novel for preteens.  After months of passing the story around to friends and family to get suggestions and then having it professionally edited I am now at the stage of trying to find an agent.  Yes, you heard me.  I am going to take my first step out of the self-publishing world and see if I can survive in the domain of main-stream publishing. Yikes!  It’s a little scary to think about, but I am determined to give it my best effort.  I have already chosen a few agents to test the waters. Then again, if anyone has any suggestions of agents that are willing to give me a look-see, I would be ever so grateful.

While we wait to see if this new venture takes root I am still enjoying selling and promoting my Mommy, Tell Me a Story series.  In fact, we are already starting on the next book Mommy, Tell Me a Story about a Horse.  It has been over a year now sense we published our last book in this series so we are really excited to start adding to the collection again.

My hubby Dave took a break from illustrating my books to finish two wonderful books for a new author.  If you would like to see these two projects you can find them on amazon.com or barnsandnoble.com under author Ann Anovitz.  They are very sweet books and are definitely worth checking out.

I have also been busy planning book events for 2015.  This is my favorite part of being an author! It is my chance to meet and greet as many little ones as I can.  Just today, Dave and I spent several hours at the Gilbert Art Walk, not far from our home here in AZ, signing and selling books.  I can’t tell you how much we enjoy seeing a little boy or girl hugging one of our books as they walk away from our booth.

For my local followers, here is a list of places we will be in the next couple months:

February 27- Boulder Creek Elementary

March 7- Gilbert Art Walk

March 14- Tucson Festival of Books (Richer Life booth…Sat. & Sun. 1:30-3:30)

March 30- Desert Vista Elementary

April 11- Gilbert Global Village

We love to visit schools in the Phoenix area so if your son or daughter would like us to visit their school let me know, and I will see what we can do to make it a reality.

Well I think you are all caught up now.  I value all of my readers and hope that this blog finds you well.  I can’t wait to see what is in store for the rest of 2015!
