WElcome, Lonni Lane Marketing!


Lisa Nadel at Lonni Lane Marketing has agreed to be my agent in the author visit world. Wahoo! Lisa will be a huge asset on my quest for world domination. She’s been in the book industry for 20 years and really knows what’s she’s doing. She’ll line up events, order books, communicate with the clients and book the travel arrangements. Scheduling author visits is a full-time job in itself and it will be nice to have someone, especially a pro like Lisa Nadel, doing that work from now on.

Publisher/Editor Christy Ottaviano at Macmillan/Holt Publishing just made an offer for two (2) more Happy County books. YAY! This will bode very well for the first two books, Hello World! and Sun and Moon Together as they prepare for their Spring release. These books are so fun to create.

It’s an Ethan Long mural!


Lauren Zimmerman, my trusted friend and book seller, owns and operates Writer’s Block Bookstore in Winter Park, Florida. It’s a cute store, with lots of great books and items, but recently she has decided to relocate up the street to a bigger building. It’ll have more space, more access and also a cool reading area for the kids.

Lauren has asked me to design a mural that will span four walls and make the reading area a special place for parents, kids and caregivers to come and spend time enjoying books. The concept was designed as a “Game of Thrones” for little readers. What a fun concept! The plan is to have it completed by mid-September 2019 so if you’re in the Orlando area, swing by and see it in person. If you live far off in other lands, you’re still in luck—we’ll be posting photos soon on social media. :)

One of my books (which cannot be named) is currently being developed for video and TV with PBS KIDS! They have teamed up with another company (which can also not be named!) and production is going really well. Despite being unable to say much about it, it is very exciting! The release date is January 2020, so stay tuned for updates. :)
