thank you, Maryland! and BBYA update

Thursday, July 16, 2009

Yesterday, I talked to a great group of teens about writing in Fredrick, Maryland--I want to thank Melissa for inviting me to come and speak and--of course!--everyone who came! I sent out the links I promised too, although if you have a hotmail addy the message may have gone directly to your spam folder. If you didn't get it, just drop me a note via the contact page

Also! I finally saw Something, Maybe at Wal-Mart!! I knew the book was there because I've seen pictures of it in other stores, but it isn't at any of the Wal-Marts in my area. However, there was a huge one in Fredrick so I thought, "Why not look?" and there it was! It was pretty amazing to see it, especially since it was right next to Sarah Dessen's books. I may have clapped like an idiot when I saw that. (yeah, okay, I did--but come on. It's Sarah Dessen! You'd clap too.)

Also, I've been able to find out a little more about what's happening with the BBYA list. You can read more here and here -- but it looks like the list is going to be discussed again during the 2010 midwinter meeting.

Again, if you know more about what happened during the BBYA discussion or if you have information or thoughts about the future of the list, please feel free to share your observations or links.

And don't forget to enter the contest to win an ARC of The Blonde of the Joke

That Walmart sounds awesome! Mine has gone Twilight crazy so the teen section is only vampire books! I think the only non-vampire books was The Hunger Games. I wish they'd bring back Sarah Dessen and you!
