Goofing off with Jim Averbeck, a contributor to this podcast episode, at the Black & White Ball.

Yesterday, I did something unprecedented. I hijacked¬†Katie Davis‘ Brain Burps podcast. Took it all for myself!

Why?

So I could share all of the amazing, astounding gratitude quotes I got from faculty members at SCBWI-LA. The likes of Jon Scieszka, Mac Barnett, Bruce Degen, Ellen Hopkins, David Diaz, Lin Oliver, Marla Frazee, Paul Zelinsky… The list goes on.

I so hope you will all listen because it will be impossible not be inspired (and perhaps a little teary) afterward. Plus it’s short. It had to be because I had Katie tied up in the closet with duct tape over her mouth!!

My apologies to Katie for taking such drastic measures, but I’ve been traveling so much I wasn’t able to write a Gratitude Sunday post after the LA conference. I think this podcast episode will do well in its place.

To use Jon Scieszka’s “word” from the conference (you’ll hear more about that in the podcast) — ENJOY!

  1. Great! Love fresh voices on BBAB even tho your regular segments are great too. That must have been some powerful military-grade duct tape you used! Enjoy all of Katies podcasts and her guest abductors.

  2. Is there actually a clip of Ms. Davis tied up with the duct tape gag? I would LOVE to see that… ;) Great jo – I mean BAD BAD BAD job taking over Ms. Davis’ podcast! You deserve a time out (from eating veggies! You get to have veggie-shaped CHOCOLATES!!!) ;)
