Don't forget to let me know what young adult novels you wish were out already because you want to read them right now--because you could win a free book just for doing that!

I also have links to share:

Pimp My Novel on the importance of face time--this is something I feel strongly about, not just in terms of going out once your book is released, but if you have the ability to go and meet your agent before you sign with them, you SO should. (Trust me on this one. It's a mistake I made with my first agent, and I paid for it!) And you most definitely should go and meet your editor if it's at all possible.

Great post by agent Jessica Faust about planning your future writing income--it's a really informative post, but to be honest, I'm not entirely sure that you can ever truly plan what your writing income will be. It's the kind of thing where you want to make sure you a. save as much as you can and b. pay your taxes.

Not at all writing or publishing related, but I have to share this--a little update on my favorite couple from MTV's excellent series, 16 and Pregnant

Editorial Ass loves Wednesdays???

Agent Kristin Nelson reminds everyone that agents get rejected too
