living dead girl now out in paperback! plus the usual :-)

Wednesday, September 09, 2009

I'm thrilled to say Living Dead Girl is now officially out in paperback--and for only $8.99! (And with a gorgeous new cover* to boot!) You can pick it up at your favorite local bookstore, or you can order it from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Millon, Books Inc., and Borders. (!!!)

I also come bearing links:

Pimp My Novel on A Day In the Life -- fascinating look into the world of the sales offices of publishing houses

Publishers Weekly has a blog entry from Rose Fox on how NOT to get published

Agent Rachelle Gardner on why quitting your day job to write isn't always the best idea--nice breakdown on advances and how they are paid, as well as info about agent commission and taxes.

The Rejectionist is talking about rejection--"Darling author-friends, we are NOT by any means telling you not to write. We are offering you a sort of tough-love approach, a refusal to delude you with promises of puppies and unicorns. Persistence does not always pay off with laurels upon which to rest. We could practice swimming sixteen hours a day for the next ten years, and we still won't be going to the Olympics; sew dresses until our fingers fall off, and no one will be inviting us to fashion week; and, let's face it, all of us could write every hour of every day for the rest of our lives and ain't none of us going to come up with Lolita. Brush your little selves off and keep your chins up. We know it's hard because we've been there, and are in fact hanging out there, making occasional embittered comments about the "immature style" of people younger than us who are cranking out critically acclaimed novels that are, like, soooo much dumber than the book we are totally going to write as soon as we finish looking at this one last fashion blog." (In case you can't tell, I heart The Rejectionist)


*I wasn't kidding about the cover:

I like the cover. I need a new copy. My dog loved the first one so much he took a chunk right out of it.
