ARC winner, links, and when is it going to actually be fall?

Monday, October 05, 2009

Is it just me, or is anyone else getting tired of these balmy October days? If nothing else, I have some super cute long sleeved shirts and these awesome boots that I want to buy! But it's hard to wear the shirts or buy the boots (what do you think? Should I???) when it's going to be 75 degrees. (I did mention that it's OCTOBER, right? Shouldn't it be not summer-like outside???)

Okay, moving on. Congrats to Staysi, who won the ARC of Beautiful Creatures and keep an eye out for this week's giveaway of another book everyone's talking about--Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick.

On to the links:

Agent Janet Reid has a quiz about aspiring author advice

Agent Nathan Bransford writes about queries from previously published authors--and the one thing they tend to forget to mention

Two interesting posts on authors and editing: Editor Unleashed on Is Editing Worth It? and a thoughtful response from agent Jessica Faust on Editing and Authors

Carrie Vaughn wonders about author platforms

YAY! Nominations for the 2009 Cybils are open (Required shameless plug: Something, Maybe is totally eligible for nomination!)

PAYA is a group of Pennsylvania young adult bloggers, authors, and librarians working to raise money to help Pennsylvania's libraries -- to learn more about what's happening in Pennsylvania with regard to it's public libraries, there's a good overview here

PAYA will be running auctions to help raise funds here starting October 7th, and I'm proud to say I'll be part of it. The public library was my *only* source of books for years, and I hate to think of them disappearing.

That would be great. I miss you too & I'm sorry I've been so absent - been kind of swamped and floundering, but would really love to catch up!
