One Week!

Tuesday, March 09, 2010

It's now one week (ONE!) until The Unwritten Rule is in stores! I can't believe it's almost here--I've got my fingers crossed for the book and I just wanted to say Thank You! again to all of your for your support.

And! Speaking of The Unwritten Rule, don't forget that you have until midnight *tonight* to let me know what you'd like to know about how/what/why I wrote The Unwritten Rule for my next readergirlz vlog! The person with the best suggestion wins a copy of Hex Hall AND the YA book of their choice--so head on over here and let me know what you'd like to know!

I've also got some links to share:

Jennifer Lynn Barnes on Five Things (That You Think When Writing Sequels)

Megan Crane has found The Easy Way To Write Ten Pages Today -- if this doesn't make you laugh, then well....I don't know what will! -- "Arrive at store that sells the jeans you know, via historical trial and error and an unforgiving camera lens, provide the most flattering jeans for what you euphemistically call your "figure." Skulk about, fingering all the skinny jeans and wishing you had the right body to prance around in them--i.e., thighs that are not as wide as the length of your foot. Catch sight of self in mirror and confirm fact that said proportions will never be yours. Veer between righteous celebration of your realness and desperate longing to be transformed into some gazelle-like-creature with tiny thighs."

The problem(s) that can happen when you mix genres -- "Besides, you may well say, there are all sorts of books that have stood between genres and done fantastically well! Twilight (horror and YA), The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay (‘literary’ and fantasy), “The Dark Tower (fantasy, western, horror, romance), and all of Neil Gaiman’s books. Right you are, as usual! But again, this is a list of books for which things turned out all right. What about those books -- some of which might be just great -- that stand between genres, but you never heard of them? What happened to those books?..."

One Week!!!!!!!
