links and countdown contest/video blog update

Sunday, March 29, 2009

I've got some links to share with you!

Writing the second novel, or the pressure of writing the next book once the first has come out/is about to be released.

A look at how the cover for the new book, Columbine, was created -- as it's a stunning cover and I just got the book, I had to link to it. Cover design is a really fascinating process.

A list of all the young adult authors currently on Twitter

Why You Should Listen to Bad Reviews
--I don't agree with everything that's said, and I also can't and won't read unsolicited work sent to me, but there is some interesting stuff here. Bad reviews can be harsh, but they often point things out things that, if corrected, could make your work better.

Agent Jessica Faust on What Authors Can Do To Sell Books -- Simple and practical. The truth is that the best thing you can do is write the best book of your life and follow it up with an even better book. The rest, the Web site, the blog, the pens, the postcards . . . should only be done if they are fun for you.

The last countdown to Something, Maybe contest winner was The Green Bean Teen Queen, Jo won Does This Book Make Me Look Fat? and Bunny won Bones of Faerie from the video blog contest I did last week.

And speaking of contests, don't forget to enter the Out Of This World Contest!
