Inspiration is a Hoot!

MUF

Last month the Mixed Up Files posted a fun interview all about my inspiration, my obsession with owls, and my love of the natural world.

I gave them a backstage tour of one of my favorite places at the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History–the Nature Collection!

It was a hoot!

A Secret Scene…

instagramDonuts

Now that Mattie and my eco-crime fighting owl Alfred are officially out in the wilds of libraries and bookstores, I’m in the mood for donuts. LOTS OF DONUTS!

I’ve written a secret scene about a very special donut. You can unlock the scene in several ways:

  1. Tweet a donut picture or gif to @RobinYardi, please do indulge!
  2. Tweet a picture of the cover of OWL’S OUTSTANDING DONUTS on a wild bookshelf!
  3. Follow my blog and comment here, and please DO tell me your favorite flavor!!

A perfectly baked PDF can be delivered to greedy readers via DM or email!

Happy reading & happy eating!

This Cover is a Hoot!

The cover of OWL’S OUTSTANDING DONUTS is officially out in the wild today and let’s just say I think it’s an absolute hoot!

The cover designer, Emily Harris, and illustrator, Kelsey King, are over on the Lerner Books Blog answering questions about their creative process. Fly on over and check it out!

But before you do, Alfred wants to make sure you see something. Something suspicious. Something in Big Sur. And it’s happening right across the road from OWL’S OUTSTANDING DONUTS…

 

 

 

And now that Alfred’s got your attention, you’re absolutely going to need to pre-order my new middle grade mystery. Kirkus says, “Doughn’t miss this earnest tale.”

Pre-order Alert!!

Hoot-hoot!!

 

 

Owl’s Outstanding Donuts won’t be out until September 3, but you can pre-order a copy through your local bookstore on IndieBound.org!!

OWL’S OUTSTANDING DONUTS is “a story full of mystery, feathers, and sprinkles. After Mattie Waters loses her mother, she goes to live with her aunt, the owner of a roadside donut shop in Big Sur, California. When an owl taps on Mattie’s window one night, Mattie looks out to see something suspicious taking place nearby. With help from her friends–and from Alfred, a stuffy but good-hearted owl–she’ll set out to find the culprits, facing fears that have followed her since her mother’s death.”

I can’t wait for you all to meet Mattie and Alfred and would love to support our beautiful, local, brick and mortar bookstores!IndieBound
