If there were a law against blog neglect, I'd probably be in jail by now...

My poor dusty blog!!

I haven't been here for quite a while, and it's been even longer than that since I've posted a Michigander Monday profile.  It will probably be until spring before the Michigander Monday feature returns.

But rest assured, around the time the snow melts (or thereabouts), Michigander Monday will resume, as will (semi-)regular postings by me.

Until then, a few news tidbits:

The newest addition to The Pout-Pout Fish series is the mini-adventure Kiss, Kiss, Pout-Pout Fish.  It came out in December, so you can currently find it on the shelves of your favorite library or bookstore. As you might have gathered from the title, it's a short but sweet story -- only 12 pages long, but full of ways to express love. Fun to read on any day, and perfect for Valentine's Day.

Arriving this May will be The Pout-Pout Fish Giant Sticker Book. Full of stickers. Lots of them!

In non-fish publication news, in April I will have a new picture book out called Catch a Kiss, illustrated by Kris Aro McLeod.  I'll share the cover for that very soon.

In the meantime, thank you for stopping by my blog, despite its currently neglected status. I look forward to sharing more regular postings with you in the very near future.  Smooch-smooch!

My daughter loves your books, for the first time today, she actually said the words "pout pout fish". Any chance you will be making more book store appearances this year?

That's adorable! :) I have some Lansing-area library story times coming up next week (March 9 at DTDL, and March 10 at CADL-Main). I don't currently have any scheduled out of the area, but I'm always adding to my schedule. If you email me your location (deborah[at]deborahdiesen[dot]com), I can keep you posted if I'm in your area. Thanks!
