The American Library Association recently announced its Young Adult Library Services Association awards--including the Printz and the Best Books for Young Adults, and I'm happy (and shocked!) to say that Bloom has been named a Popular Paperback Pick for 2008!

(yay!!)

Okay, sorry, had to get that out of my system. Now, how about some links...

Jennifer Donnelly, author of A Northern Light, The Tea Rose, and The Winter Rose (all great reads--I think A Northern Light is one of the best historical YAs ever) talks about her first book sale. It's a truly lovely story, and powerfully inspiring to boot.

The Rejecter talks about second book worries -- as someone who has their second book coming out this year, this one was very interesting reading for me.

Ditto for Kit Whitfield's post on Secondbookitis (I also enjoyed Whitfield's post on "the enemy within," or as I like to call it, my internal "you suck!"-o-meter)

And finally, Jeff VanderMeer wrote a novel in two months. Here's how he did it.
