Woot! I’ve been keeping of this partly under my hat because I was afraid of jinxing it, but just got word that it’s official.
Many of you may remember, that I auditioned for a Sesame Street workshop last year.
It was an amazing experience, but I figured my chances were slim of getting to do more. Still, getting to do a high level masterclass like that was worth the experience, even if I never got to step foot on Sesame Street.
If you follow me on Twitter, then you may have noticed me squeeing suddenly about two weeks ago, with good news that I couldn’t talk about.
I just received an email that is so amazing that I actually started to hyperventilate. And no. I can’t tell you what it is. But OMG OMG OMG.

That was when I got an email checking on my availability for two days of work to assist on Season 46 of Sesame Street.
The urge was to just say YES without checking my calendar, because OMG Sesame Street– But. I did check annnnnd…. some of the dates conflicted with book launch and tour. The agony. THE AGONY. So I told Tor what was going on, and they said, “Go! It’s [appropriate cursing] Sesame Street!” So I let them know that I was available.
Again, those of you on twitter may have seen another tweet, in which I was a little excited.

That was the day when I got my confirmation of dates which do NOT conflict with the book stuff after all. Yay, for careers not colliding!
Now, today, I can tell you that I’ll be heading to Sesame Street.
