paperback of Living Dead Girl!

Thursday, August 27, 2009

Yesterday, I got a copy of the soon-to-be released paperback of Living Dead Girl in the mail and I knew the paperback cover was gorgeous, but seeing it--really seeing it, as in holding it--WOW. I think it's the best cover I've ever had, and I have truly been blessed by the cover gods. Here's a shot of the cover:



And aside from the gorgeous cover, I'm thrilled to say the paperback will only cost 8.99! YAY all around!!

I will be going through all the questions you had for Alyson Noel today and will get in touch with those whose questions got picked as soon as I can!

And, of course, I have links. What can I say--the blogosphere has been full of fascinating stuff this week!!

Editor Cheryl Klein asks agents to think about auctions and how hard they can be for an editor

So far, two agents have responded with their thoughts about auctions:
Michael Bourret of Dystel & Goderich responds directly here and then agent Kristin Nelson talks about auctions here

Meg Cabot has a great essay up at Seventeen about writing and rejection

Pimp My Novel writes about Borders' ongoing financial problems--this is a big deal, not just for book buyers, who may face loosing their only area bookstore (sadly, with so many independents having to close their doors, all that's left in many places are chain bookstores) but for authors and the entire publishing industry because the loss of Borders would mean that there would only be one national chain left in the US. And I can pretty much guarantee one thing will absolutely happen if Borders closes: fewer books will be published, simply because there will be so many fewer bookstores out there.

Author Patti O'Shea captures the joy of being a writer very well in her blog entry here -- "'d hate to lose my imagination even more. I love the what ifs. I love the stories in my head that keep me entertained when I'm stuck in a boring situation. And I can't imagine (ha!) not having the voices in my head. How empty would that feel?" (I think it would feel pretty empty indeed. At least, I know it would for me.)

Charming post about how one writer got her dream agent

Author Stephanie Burgis writes about finding her way into a novel

Fascinating interview with long-time agent Georges Borchardt at Poets & Writers magazine

That cover is great! It's simple and elegant, yet somehow conveys a dark depth.

That quote about loving your imagination really struck me. I'm a writer, but first and foremost I'm an imaginer (if I may invent the term!) of worlds and stories. That's what allows me to be a writer. Writing is pretty much just scribe work for what's playing out in my head daily.

Does anyone else get that feeling when you write?
