I woke up this morning and it was cool out so I got all optimistic and grabbed a sweater. And then my husband said, "You do know it's going to be about 75 today, right? And 80 tomorrow."

Ugh, ugh, UGH! Am I the only person out there who wants fall--real fall--to show up already? I feel like I need to go outside and chant or something. I'm not asking for a lot, just for a chance to wear shirts that have long sleeves all day!

Also! Don't forget to tell me about ya covers you love (or those you don't)--over here, because if you do, you could win an ARC of Hush, Hush!

Before I go off to sulk about this so-called "fall," I've got some links:

Agent Jessica Faust on What Publishers Bring to the Table--great post about how different books are positioned by publishers

Pimp My Novel with a reminder that publishing is a business -- and like all businesses, they want to--in fact, *need* to--make money. -- "I mean, think about your current job: would you make an acquisition or other career move that you thought would bleed money everywhere? How would you justify something like that to your colleagues and superiors? And, if you're nodding along with me now and admitting that you couldn't: what makes that any different from buying a nice book that just won't sell?"

Nicola Morgan on the idea that you can turn in a manuscript you know isn't the best you can make it because your editor will fix it, or Myth About Writing 1:"I Can Leave It To My Editor"

I'm sending you fall from southern England! We've had cold, rain, cold, rain and some more rain. I'll take 75/80 anyday! I don't think we've had temperatures like that since our one week summer in May...

You are not alone on the fall thing. I love fall. Everyone thinks I'm crazy because I hate summer and can't wait for it to end. But fall is so pretty and I love wearing sweaters all day too haha.

Ugg, I'll try sending you fall. It's so cold here in Chicago :( I'm wearing this giant sweatshirt and fuzzy socks to keep warm!

I'm sending you fall from Moline, Illinois! It's freezing here! I'd take the 70/80 degrees anytime! It apparently even snowed over the weekend while I was gone, only flurries though and nothing stuck 2 the ground, and its supposed to get in the 50's later this week, and that's warm for us right now. :-)

I think you got your wish. It's as cold here as in the Uk now. Time to put the flip flops away :(
