Don Aker is a saint.

At least he is in my books.

He’s agreed to join me for my session at Word on the Street this coming Sunday, thus sparing me the agony of speaking by myself (and probably to myself as well.)

We’ll be talking about our new books, our approach to writing and – no doubt since it’s Don and I and we ALWAYS end up talking about stuff like this when we get together – the more spiritually crushing aspects of the  Kid Lit business.  (You’ll laugh, you’ll cry…)

You can find out more about Don’s “highly recommended” new novel, The Fifth Rule, here. Or go to Don’s website for in-depth insight into his books, career and charming goatee.
