This week is going to be a busy one for me--I'm working on copy edits for Perfect You, and I have my first ever book signing tomorrow. (Remember that school visit I had a few months back? Well, the lovely Ms. Story and her students have invited me back! I can't wait!)

Before I leave you with some links, I want to say congrats to Valerie, Laine, Jennifer, and Colleen--you all won free books for entering the Bloom contest!

Agent Lori Perkins on Sara Nelson's (Publishers Weekly's editor) talk about what being as successful writer really means -- I think Nelson raises some great points. (And it's nice to know that the oft-quoted "200,000 books published a year!" is a tad misleading)

The Plot Monkeys are doing an in-depth look on the who, where, what, why and how of agents (Part two is here, with the rest to follow)
