ARC winner and links

Wednesday, May 13, 2009

I wasn't expecting so many entries for the Love You Hate You Miss You ARC contest and WOW! You all are amazing, and it was very hard to pick a winner. (So hard, in fact, that I ended up walking around the house talking to myself this morning about it!)

But I did pick a winner, and it's Summer, who won for her "The Real, True Story about Why I Want an ARC of Love You Hate You Miss You"

I also have some links to share:

Author Maggie Stiefvater on keeping faith in yourself, why you should avoid jealousy, and dealing with the unexpected things life throws at us--there's a lot of stuff covered here, and all in a really smart way

Mashable offers a list of the 100+ of the Best Authors on Twitter -- Great list but hello, where's Kathleen Duey who is writing a novel on twitter??? (And for those of you who might check out twitter once in a while but don't use it--like yours truly--you can read all of Duey's novel, Russet, as it's written here. I actually find it easier to read on the blogspot site because on twitter you have to go back, find where you stopped reading, and then read up)

Finally, Agent Jennifer Jackson offers a link to loads of other agent's blog posts (on topics like quitting your day job, questions to ask an agent when you're offered representation, how to deal with all the various "rules" that seem to be out there regarding queries (and everything else!) --and then asks for your thoughts on all of it

Woohoo! Congratulations, Summer! I loved your story - you should totally try to get it published in a magazine or something!
