7th Meeting of the CBC

When: Friday, September 20th

Notes: It was awesome to hear from Millie! Erik had some interesting questions prepared for the meeting, and it was fascinating to find out more about each of these colorful characters. We can't wait for the next CBC meeting in October, so be sure to check back! 




When: Friday, August 16th

Notes: Meeting Erik was awesome, and it was great to visit Millie's blog again- she's always so much fun! Erik's adventure with a pirate and his ghostly crew kept us on the edge of our seat, and Marcus cannot wait to meet Star to see if she can really read his mind- he's been preparing thoughts since the meeting- lol. We were happy to catch wind of this story, and a good time was had by all! We can't wait to chat with Erik and his interesting friends again soon.

Feature Guest: Pete and Weasel Alligators Overhead by C. Lee Mckenzie

Notes: It was fun to chat with Pete and Weasel! They are such cool characters! We enjoyed learning about their swampy adventures, and can't believe how awesome it is that Pete has an alligator for a familiar. Hopefully, Weasel will get a chance to read, and Pete will turn into a G-normas guy with x-ray vision who can fly. : )

Feature Guest: Eric & Stig from The Deliverers by Gregory Slomba

Notes: It was so much fun to find out more about Eric & Stig from The Deliverers! Pete did a great job hosting the meeting, and we hope he isn't in too much trouble with his author for hijacking the blog. Stig was as charming as ever, and it was really interesting to hear about his travels. We also found out that Alligators and Owls have no problems with each other and actually quite enjoy each others company. It's Pete's turn next to tell us what he thinks about things, so be sure to keep an eye out for the next CBC meeting. And guess what? It's going to be hosted by us, the DMS! We can't wait ; ) 



When: Friday, May 17th

Notes: It was great to find out more about Millie at the 3rd meeting of the CBC, hosted by the very charming duo of Eric and Stig from The Deliverers. Lizzy was excited to chat with someone else who loves to travel, and it was cool to hear Millie's excellent advice about what do do when faced with a bully. We are so excited to visit Pete over at The Write Game next month and hear what Eric and Stig have to say about things! 



Where: Millie's Blog!
When: Friday, April 19th

Notes: Visiting Millie's Blog was so much fun, and it was great to talk about how we started the Detective Mystery Squad. Millie's haunting problem was fascinating, and we hope that our advice was helpful! We can't wait for the next meeting of the CBC! 



When: Friday, March 22nd
Feature Guest: Nate from the Nate Rocks Series by Karen Pokras Toz

Notes: It was awesome to chat with Nate! We learned some interesting things about him and his big sister, Abby. As it turns out, his mom's cooking is as bad as he says, and it was a unanimous decision not to eat the Sunday Morning Surprise : )

  4. It's nice to see Michelle featured here! Love her philosophy about writing good, safe books for kids. I'm totally on board with that. When my kids were younger (they're adults now), it was tricky sometimes finding good stuff for them to read.

    The CBC lineup looks great! Wishing the authors all the best!:)

  6. I'm still worn-out. Tomato came back wrapped in duct tape, Pea somehow got a tablet that has unlimited data and says "mySHMIEL" on the back... *sigh* :) Thank you for hosting another great book club! :)

  9. Ach! I made it here! Today was another catch-all Friday. :) Kelly, thank you! D. Robert Pease was my cover designer. Karen, you are a dear. Hugs! Erik, LOL! Sorry about the duct tape and, uh, I'd better give Agent Schmiel a heads up about his tablet. Tracy and everyone else who popped over to Bookworm Blather yesterday and today, thanks a bunch. Stephanie and Jess, I had a blast doing these interviews with Erik. :)
