Susan V. Vaughn Knockout Love Cover Reveal and Pre-Order Details

Dear Alison,
I decided to send you a Sunday bonus letter, but I'm not going to talk about #NY16SCBWI. I'll return to my #NY16SCBWI recap sessions in my next letter.
Today, I plan to gush about another fellow Inkspell-er, Susan V. Vaughn, and her book that's coming out Knockout Love. It's available for Pre-Order.  

The book cover alone makes me want to read this book.  

Here's the Blurb:
She just might be the woman of his dreams….
Maggie Heugan has her life all planned out, from her engagement to a handsome doctor, to her perfect nursing career. Then why does a chance meeting with a captivating stranger, have her questioning everything she has ever known? 
Pro wrestler, Sean Miller is on a fast track to his destiny, until an unexpected injury derails his course. Now he can’t refrain from chasing the enticingly beautiful Nurse Maggie, when she just might hold the key to healing him in more ways than one.
For these two conflicted lovers, life spirals out of control, when Love collides with destiny.

And now the Excerpt:
Maggie shielded her eyes, hiccupping loudly. “It’s so bright!” 
“The moon is too bright?” Sean laughed, pulling her into his chest to shield her eyes. 
Without thinking, she wrapped her arms around his waist and looked up at him with a tipsy smile. “It’s not too bright for you?” 
“No, I’m Superman.” 
“Superman?” Maggie giggled again drunkenly, ending in another hiccup. “Superman would have been able to drink his own drink and not require me to do it for him. It’s your fault I’m this drunk.” 
“Is that so?” Sean responded with another smile. “It had nothing to do with the fact you ordered another two drinks on top of that, and had nothing in your stomach.” 
She looked up at him again and smiled. “Oops.” 
“No kidding, oops.” He cupped her face in his hands and looked into her eyes. “Lucky for you, you’re a pretty cute drunk.” 
“Thank you,” she responded, the world spinning around her. For a moment she felt as though she was dreaming. The air felt thick and heavy. Sean’s hands were like magic on her face. His sexy lips inched closer to hers. Then suddenly he was kissing her softly, sending spirals of electricity racing down her spine. 
Maggie sighed, standing on her tiptoes, pressing her body closer. She felt his white bandage scratch at her nose. 
“Ouch!” Sean jumped back and readjusted the bandage on his face. “Easy, girl.” 
And just like that, the spell was broken. Suddenly Maggie realized she had just kissed a man she barely knew, with a broken face, and some parts more broken than others. 
“Sorry.” She pressed a hand to her swollen lips—still tingling from Sean’s touch. 
“Don’t be sorry.” He made up the distance between them—smiling—his eyes hooded, predatory. “Just take it slow, let my face adjust.”

FIRST SNOW by Bomi Park: Classroom Activity and Review

Dear Kim,


Let it snow!
Let it snow!
Let it snow!

We had fun with Bomi Park's gorgeous FIRST SNOW last week. We used the book as a mentor text to explore personal narratives and poetry.  We also explored watercolor resist techniques. (We also made a mess-- which is kind of my modus operandi during writing workshop. Sorry, Kelley!)

I used the sentence starter from the jacket copy:
Look up. One flake falls, then another. And just like that—it's __ __ __ __ __ __ __ .

The kids worked cooperatively at their table groups to discuss what word might fill in the blank. I love hearing them chat. 
"Well it is a snowflake because 'one flake'." 
Followed by: "No. It has seven letters, snowflake has nine." 
And: "It is an action. A-- what's that called-- a verb because it is something falling." 
Eventually we filled in the blank by using spelling clues to check our thinking, which might not sound like a whole lot of fun, but spelling is awesome and totall…
