    Hi Katie!
    Another great episode. I thought it was funny that you mentioned hummus as the only thing other than self-publishing that you’ve done a total 180 on your opinion of…hummus has become the token food of critics of the new national lunch regulations at a school district I cover for a small newspaper in Pennsylvania. I would’ve thought hummus was gross if I tried it in high school, but now I eat it almost every day!
    Okay this really isn’t about kid lit but hey, thought you’d be entertained 🙂
    Thanks as always,

      Ha! That is funny – actually, I meant to say cilantro! But the word HUMMUS came to mind! I’m actually a chickpea addict! HA!

    The podcast was excellent. It was as good as attending a writer’s conference-which I did last weekend. Some of the self-publishing information was even better than what I heard at the conference.
    Way to go!
