A Super Desk, a Class, and Daniel Handler!

First off, do you need a new desk on which to pen your prose? How about a desk with good, authenticated, NEWBERY juju? Kirby Larson is no longer in need of the desk that she used while writing HATTIE BIG SKY! Would you like to have it for your very own? See it on her blog.

Next up, a chance to polish up your book proposal!

Make 2012 the year you get that book idea off the ground--and onto the shelves. Jen Worick and Kerry Colburn have more than 40 published books and 40 years of publishing experience between them, and they're ready to share their insider information with you. Learn to hone your idea, research the competition, develop your author platform, find the right agent or publisher, and create a successful book proposal. You'll be ready to submit in 30 days!

Series attendees also receive our exclusive 100-page Publishing Toolkit, filled with insider information, helpful exercises and worksheets, and sample proposals.

And last but not least, Daniel Handler is coming to town! This seems to be Daniel Handler week on the blog. Mark your calendars and get your tickets! He'll be at Town Hall on January 27th with Maira Kalman for WHY WE BROKE UP. He's such a delight. I'll be in NYC for the SCBWI Winter Conference, so someone go and take notes for me, please! $5 or free with a book purchase, but don't wait! UBS reports tickets are going fast. Get them here.
