Books covers reimagined--Worth clicking just to see the "cover" of The Road

Tess Gerritsen on what you shouldn't write about, how being an author is about more than writing, and when a series is over

Cory Doctorow has some thoughts on how to write while dealing with distraction--especially the urge to Google, chat, or check your mail. (My solution: I write without any net connection at all)

Robin Wasserman writes about her best writing class--sweet and inspiring

Apparently, some teens think being hit by the person you're dating is okay--I don't want this story to be true, because it's terrifying. It's never okay for someone to hit you. NEVER EVER. I don't care how much they say they love you.

Agent Janet Reid on agents, rejections, and finding the right agent

Nathan Brandsford talks about book revenue and how to summarize your work--two must reads!

I'm thrilled to announced that both Living Dead Girl and Stealing Heaven are nominated for the Michigan Thumbs Up! award--thank you Michigan librarians and readers!

Also! congrats to last week's contest winners: Paradox, Jenny, Donna, and Reverie--and don't forget that you could win a necklace...

Congrats on the nomination. And that article is sad. Abuse, verbal and physical, is not cool.

Thanks so much for posting that link to Cory! Distraction has been my thing lately, so this is very timely :) I should probably just be brave and disconnect from the net, too.

And congrats on the nominations!!

'literary novels seem almost designed to depress us.' It's kind of true!
And more congrats for the nomination :)
