Callin' out around the world

Callin' out around the world
Are you ready for a brand new beat?

Summer's MY BOOK's here and the time is right
For dancin' in the streets

They're dancin' in Chicago
Down in New Orleans
Up in New York City . . .

Okay, maybe not.

Book launches aren't like that. Except in my wildest dreams where the Big Cruise Boat of Beloved Authors crashes into the world's largest children's bookstore, and in true cartoon dream fashion, all the characters spill out of the pages to party down with the root-beer swilling, funky-shoed writers, all day and into the Owl Moon night.

Instead, I'm here at my desk, wearing my YES wristband

and smiling in the quiet of the morning.

It's a good day.

And it's going to get even nicer, because I'm going to give away one of those YES wristbands and a signed copy of Operation Yes.

All you have to do is visit my new website: www.operationyesbook.com and leave a comment on any post or picture. (If you have trouble leaving a comment there, just come back to Read*Write*Believe and leave your thoughts here. I'll still count you in.) Deadline to enter is this Friday (by midnight wherever you live.)

Okay, now . . . let's dance!


  1. Yay! Congratulations, Sara! I can't wait to read Operation Yes. And the cover is awesome.

  2. Yay! Congratulations!

    *dancing like a maniac*

  3. We're dancin' in Cincinnati, too!
    Congratulations, Sara!

  4. We're dancing in the rain (in Glasgow)!

  5. Dancing in California! I adore your cruise boat fantasy, too. :)

  6. Congratulations, Sara! Wishing you a wonderful book celebration!

  7. You know, I cannot comment on the other site. I tried it yesterday and today. Is it me? Am I missing something?

  8. Adrienne, are you using Internet Explorer, by chance? I just discovered that the iWeb software kind of hates IE. Firefox and Safari (for either Mac or PC) work great. But IE freezes everything up and even hides the navigation menus. Blerg.

    Anyway, if that's not it, email me the particulars of how my site is provoking you and I'll try to discipline it. :)
