New York! I see you all hate candy corn! etc.

Monday, October 27, 2008

If you live in the New York city area, you can see a bunch of amazing authors--plus me--read at Teen Author Reading Night!

It'll be held this Wednesday at 6 PM at the Jefferson Market Branch of the New York Public Library. I'll be reading from Living Dead Girl, and I'd love to see you there...

Also! I now know that I should absolutely *not* buy candy corn for Halloween, and I also want to say congrats to Brynn, Katie, Axa, and Vickie, who were last week's contest winners!

I have loads of links as well:

Nathan Bransford's blog has been busy! Author Michelle Moran stopped by to talk about book promotion for two days, and then MJ Rose also stopped by to discuss book promotion and marketing as well. (MJ Rose's post is particularly good)

Kristin Nelson writes candidly about passing on a manuscript

Meg Cabot on why it is so hard to pick that one "favorite book" (and candy corn! and movies! and her usual awesomness!)

Here's an extensive list of book promotion ideas

Agent Jessica Faust writes about agent responsibility when it comes to when it comes to unsold books -- interesting reading, and there's some interesting comments as well

The Swivet, an agent at Fine Print Literary, posts a great explanation of book stripping

Editorial Ass discusses why it can take so long to get a "No" on a project--or, as EA says,"No one likes giving bad news"

I just read Living Dead Girl right after I finished Stealing Heaven and Woah! I didn't read the back of the book or what it was about before diving into it and it blew me away. I know you said it would be a little darker than your other books but this was the last thing I was expecting.
I can't tell you how blown away I am. (in a good way) It's been on my mind all day and I couldn't wait to get home and write to you and tell you how amazing i thought it was... but there are not words to describe my reaction. I'm lost for the right words.
I hope there are a few more like this one in the future.

Hi Brianna! Thanks so much for the amazing things you said about Living Dead Girl, and although I do enjoy writing lighter stories, I hope to do more darker books as well. (So thanks for letting me know you wouldn't mind seeing them :-) )
