National Lobster Day!

Yes it's a real thing! And, as a proud lobster lover, I suggest you celebrate this special day.

Here are a few suggestions:
(1) Free a giant old lobster, like these people did! 
(2) Buy LUCY LOVES SHERMAN and read it to some briny, spiny buddies down at your local fish market. Or children. Read it to children.
(3) Look at pictures of dogs dressed up as lobsters on the internet, like this one:

But whatever you do, do not EAT any lobsters - well, at least not any named Sherman.

I Love Lucy!

And I also love my agent, and my editor, and my illustrator and my critique partners and diet coke and macaroni and cheese and mexican food and everything and everybody and why am I so loved up right now? Because I get to kick off the Summer with EVEN MORE more great news. I sold the sequel LUCY LOVES SHERMAN! As reported in Publisher's Marketplace: "LUCY LOVES SHERMAN author Catherine Bailey's LUCY LOVES SHERMAN'S BEACH, about a little girl with big ideas who discovers a pollution problem at her best friend's beach, but will her clever plans be enough to turn the tide, illustrated by Meg Walters, to Nicole Frail at Sky Pony Press, by Kathleen Rushall at Andrea Brown Literary Agency (World)."
