What would you like to see at Brimstone Soup?

Hi, Everyone. Wow, lots of new faces - welcome!

So, on the heels of the wild and unexpected popularity of Summer Revision Smackdown with Jolie, I am thinking about the next steps for this blog. I have a few ideas, but I would love to hear from you!

What would you like to see? I have a poll at right that will be open until the end of August. Other suggestions? Please leave a comment!


  1. Oh, I'm so glad you asked. ;-) I love your writing on craft and your process/news. Also, you know so many people in this community - sitting in on interviews you have with folks feels like i am in your living room, eating a gf cupcake (those were VERY good btw), and sharing the conversation.

    Also: i LOVE it when you share your artwork. Oh, and great finds among your artist/illustrator friends: e.g. the pendants, or Jaime's monster stocking.

  2. Holly,

    I just voted but no matter how the vote goes, I'm always happy to read your blog. It brightens my day, no matter what!

  3. So sweet, you two! I love to log in for just that reason, to see friends. Love.

  4. The reason I'm here - you're a dear friend of mine. And we share a similar dream, and you've achieved it, so it's been amazing to follow your journey. I love everything you put on here, and I admit that in hoping to also be published one day I am grateful you share your process and information. And i just plain love cheering you on, too!

  5. Hi Holly,

    I'm another kids book author who just stumbled upon your site -- and so glad I did. Extremely impressive. (Hey, I had a two-book deal, too! We should form a club.)

    Anyway, it looks like you have this blog thing down to an art. Me? I just started one last week entitled 'TWEEN THE LINES: The Nonsencial Ramblings of a Children's Book Author. So far I have an audience of -- err -- zero. (More like a "blahg".) Any tips???
