The Sacajawea Blog Tour officially begins today! Woo Hoo! I'm so excited! 

For most of us authors, public speaking doesn't come naturally, you have to work at it. I should know: at my very first book reading ever for Otto's Rainy Day, I was so scared, I had my brother-in-law read the book! Was I a chicken or what? In today's first blog tour stop, I talk about my experiences with public speaking, how the anxiety never goes away, and share some tips on managing your sweaty palms, hammering heart, and the urge to throw up all over your audience...

Hop on over to FrolickingThroughCyberspace Blog to read the post!
