I have received two correct answers to my trivia question from EGGS OVER EVIE. And the accompanying recipes look yummy!  I will not reveal the answer, since I can take more responses, and more recipes (which will appear in my sequel, NEW YEAR'S EVIE. Again, here are the two trivia questions: What is Mrs. Hamilton's first name, and what cookie ingredient is Corey allergic to? Good luck!

Just got back from the SCBWI conference in Los Angeles. It was awesome! I met lots of authors, editors and agents while becoming inspired!!!  More great news: EGGS OVER EVIE is now featured on my publisher's facebook page. Just search for "Christy Ottaviano Books" , and you will find all sorts of information about Christy's imprint and all of the exciting new books which are on the horizon at Henry Holt and Company. My newest book, WHEN THE WIND BLEW, is also a "Christy Ottaviano Book" and will be in libraries and book stores in about six months!
