Ta dah and Surprise
Well, you might be wondering where Cricket Muse has hopped off to and who is this “Pam Webb.”
Cricket Muse is still here, yet I have fulfilled the promise I made to myself that once I became published–not as magazine byline, not as part of an anthology, but as an author through a mainstream publisher–I would upgrade to a domain with my true name.
Here I am: Pam Webb
The published title in question will be available April 2020, which seems a long way off, yet my publisher is revving up the publicity wagon and I best jump on.
This publicity thing is tough on a gregarious hermit like myself–hence hiding out as Cricket Muse for the past seven or so years. A promise is a promise.
So–here is the newly designed blog, and I hope you will keep visiting. Check out my About page and Published Writing to get a bit more about Pam Webb. As for Cricket Muse? She’s still there. It’s difficult to keep a cricket from being a-mused with life.
The book. Right, the book. How the book came to be is a blog post coming up. I do want to thank Andrew DeYoung of Beaming Books who believed in the story, and Wendy Leach who provided the lighthearted illustrations. It’s been a wonderful experience. Thanks to all who have helped get this idea out of the drawer where it had been hiding and up on the shelves.
You can check out the title in a couple of different places:
As for the blog format? Cricket is nudging me to keep up my regular posts of Why We Say, Word Nerds, Bard Bits, and other miscellaneous thoughts about life. Those crickets-tccch-such chirpy little things…
How lovely to meet the YOU behind Cricket Muse, Pam. All the very best of luck promoting your upcoming title. And VERY WELL DONE!
Thanks, Tish. There is still a bit of Cricket 🦗 hopping about in this blog!
This is wonderful news. Congratulations on the published book. Looking forward to reading more about it soon.
Thanks! It is pretty exciting!
LOVE your big reveal!!!! Keep going … however and whatever you share has been a blessing and inspiration to many! So grateful we crossed (cyber) paths!
Thank you! I appreciate the support and kind words.
So THAT’S who I’ve been debating for lo these many months! 🙂
I’m so glad you’ve finally emerged from behind your Crickety moniker, Pam.
I’m *extra* glad you have a published book to boast about! (And it’s a boast-worthy book, too!) Congrats!
Thanks, Mike! I’ve been secretive, I know. Thanks for your support.
Aww, Yay! Congratulations! Very exciting news.
Gotta love SCBWI and all their support!

Hey, that’s excellent news, Pam. Many congratulations! 🎈
Thanks so much! More to come—stay tuned…
Definitely a Yay! time. Thanks😊
I always suspected Cricket wasn’t her given name. Good to meet the face and the name behind her. And congrats on your new book, Pam!
Well—Cricket is a nickname… and thanks, I’m pretty pleased.
Aha, that makes 3 Crickets I’ve known (of the human persuasion), and all people I’ve liked.
Aww! Thanks, Mitch.
I’m so happy happy happy for you!!!!
Thanks! It is a happy time.
