What I’m Up To When I’m Not Tweeting/on Facebook

-In edits this month and next for my novel Strangely, Incredibly Good (more news on that from my new publisher next week!)

-Negotiating sale of poem ‘The Day You Looked Me In The Eyes’ (Three Spaces) to Oxford U. Press! It will be used for a teacher’s resource guide to teach their UK syllabus; anticipated sales are 500 over 3 years. I’ve worked with Oxford University Press a few times and am so impressed with them.

-Preparing to read from The Groovy Granny and teach Haiku and freestyle poetry to Gr. 3’s at a local school (early February 2014)

-Preparing to speak at Queen’s Media and Journalism Conference March 8-9 2014 – thrilled to be invited back!

-Laundry, laundry, laundry (does it clone itself when I’m not looking?)
-My title is a bit of a joke – I do love Tweeting and Facebook, but in my free time I also love Image
just being with my family, scrapbooking, and doing yoga (I’m writing those last two on purpose so I actually commit some time to them soon!)

Can’t wait to share more about my upcoming novel with all of you with a post from my new publisher – NEXT WEEK! 🙂

Have a great start to 2014, everyone. Make it count.

  1. Hi Heather
    I am the educational author who found your poem The Day You Looked me in the Eyes and asked OUP to use it in a teacher’s resource publication. Now I want to share it with a student I am helping and I can’t find it! Can you help me? Jill Carter

    1. Hello, Jill. Most of my published poems now appear in the volume “CAGED: NEW AND SELECTED POEMS” which contains my best published work chosen by editors from 25 years of work and a few new poems from the last few years. You can find it on Kindle, Kindle Unlimited program around the world, and on Amazon in paperback in Canada, the USA the UK, Australia and several other countries. 🙂 Thanks for your interest!

      1. @Jill forgot to mention that that poem is definitely in that volume 🙂

  2. Well done! 🙂

    Laundry, by the by, is genetically related to rabbits. Now you kow.

    1. Oh! That’s why it jumps from room to room too!
      Thanks so much for the visit, Mark.

      1. I need to make a point to visit more often.
