Well, moving during a book launch in a pandemic--I wouldn't recommend it. But I'm so thankful to all of you who have supported me, through watching my online activities or even buying and sharing about the book!
If you missed out, you can see me and the illustrator Jess at Little Shop of Stories on Facebook here or me reading the book at Warwick's Bookstore on Instagram here.
And good news--The Ocean Calls is on the Fall 2020 Kids' Indie Next List by the American Booksellers Association!
I'm in Iowa now. Big difference from the lightning fast Internet of Korea. That's the main thing we miss. In fact, it took over two weeks just to get service. Which means I had to go to a hotel to use their Internet to do my LIVE book launch online!
And now I'm back in the classroom with two hybrid groups of kindergartners teaching them how to walk in a line like zombies, arms out to measure social distancing.
What are some new things you're adjusting to? How's your writing?

Tina - I hope you are settling in. You and your family are going through so many changes - in the middle of a pandemic! I'm so excited for you and your two new books that are now out in the world.
