Hi! Thank you all so much for the outpouring of enthusiasm for the SISTERS’ FATE cover! I’m working on responding to all of your comments! I’ve just chosen the winners for the contest – congratulations to @Desi_Gay and @Kikisdreambooks, who were both tweeting madwomen!
In the meantime – I’ve updated my Events page because I’ve got 4 events coming up in October! The first one is on Thursday, Oct 3 at the Arlington County Library. It’s a panel called Shut Up & Write – which is kicking off a new series of author panels focused more on the craft of writing than promoting our books. I’m helping organize these and I’m really excited. In the inaugural one, I’ll be talking with Jon Skovron and Diana Peterfreund about first drafts! Come see us?
I also have a bunch of fun links to share:
At Adventures in YA Publishing, I shared Cate, Maura, and Tess’s bucket lists. Of course, one of them might not live long enough to accomplish hers…
At Chasing the Crazies, I shared my querying process, how I found Awesome Agent Jim, how my first manuscript got shelved, and the importance of critique partners.
I’m the September Author Spotlight at Step Into Fiction! You can win a personalized copy of BORN WICKED and read an interview with me – and more interestingly, one with Tess! Want to know what she thinks are Maura and Cate’s best and worst traits?
Also, The Playwright has a new play opening in DC on October 12. If you’re in the area, you should all come see IN THE FOREST, SHE GREW FANGS. Check out the creepy awesome trailer here!
Also, in a not-fun but important link, The Toast has an interview with Rainbow Rowell about the censorship of ELEANOR & PARK. Censorship: not cool. I’m reading the book now and loving it so much. I’m super-excited for Rainbow’s signing tomorrow night at Politics & Prose! I can’t wait to read FANGIRL too.
