First Author Visit - Yikes!!

Tomorrow is my first 'official' middle school author visit.. Now, you would think that after teaching middle school for a bizillion years, I would be okay with it.. Nope, I'm really sweating about tomorrow. 

Anyone else out there do author visits? What do you do? What grades do you visit?

My book, SCREWBALL, is featured on The National Writing for Children website today.. :) 

On a sporty note, UCLA's pitcher, Anjelica Feldon, was named the USA Softball National Collegiate Player of the week and Alabama still holds the number one ranking.
