I think we are up to the middle 60's in the amount of authors who are coming. I wish more would come, but most children authors want to be paid, and we just can't do that.

It's useful to realize that the large majority of authors make less from their writing than you make as a police officer.

And (if they don't have another job or young children) probably work longer hours.

On the other hand, they don't get into fights with criminals as often. :-)

(Thanks for the work - ALL the work, literacy and otherwise - you're doing.)
