So here is my flat stanley (colored him myself) and I've decided to see who would all in the writing world would be down for taking Flat Stanley on adventures... and several people have already agreed (because they are so awesome)!
So I'll be letting you know when the page is updated (which can be found under Stanley's Adventures) but for now here are a few authors who have already visited with Flat Stanley...
Alexandra Adornetto visisted Blue Willow and Stanley was overjoyed to be in a photo!
Last week Tony DiTerlizzi, Flat Stanley and I all had coffee at Starbucks, we enjoyed talking about The Search for Wondla, how Tony got his start, how him and Holly Black met, and co-created The Spiderwick Chronicles.
So here's what I know when we got down to questions with Tony...
Hero or Sidekick: Hero (used to be the quiet nerdy guy)
How Tony met Holly (for Spiderwick Chronicles): He worked at Dungeons and Dragons and Holly Black wanted to interview him for the small magazine she worked for. They had dinner and became friends, the rest, is history.
Advice for Writers: Keep writing, HAVE OTHERS READ IT. So many times he talks with writers working towards publishing and they never show their work.
Favorite snacks: Coffee, Macaroons, Fig Newtons
Favorite writing space: IN MY MIND, also a studio (cool way of saying converted basement).
Favorite book: Watership Down
And there's a bit about Tony!
Next stop for Flat Stanley? Victoria Schwab... Cyn Balog... and other awesome authors!
