hey there, Monday!

Yep, there have been some changes to the site, in honor of Grace coming out this Thursday! (And yep, it is in some stores already--many thanks to those of you who've spotted it and sent me notes/pictures--I know I say this a lot, but it's true--you all are the BEST!!)

Moving on, congrats to Stacey, who won last week's contest, and thanks again to Sandra for her great guest blog. Look for another one soon...

And yes, of course I have links!

Agent Jennifer Laughran with a very blunt--but very good--piece on being a mid-list author (and how front-list can mean squat to boot)--She's right about it all, but it doesn't mean this mid-list author wouldn't love to make the Times list for just a week! (Just one week!!!)

Pimp My Novel on book release timing and a really interesting post about breaking writing "rules"

Over at Writer Unboxed, Allison Winn Scotch on how and why she decided to leave her publisher --this isn't something you see written about very often, and a tip of the hat to Allison for doing so, and shedding more light onto the notion that once you're published, everything from then on is smooth sailing.

Agent Rachelle Gardner talks about editorial meetings -- yes, those! The ones where your book, if it's made it this far, gets picked up. Or not.

Agent and author Nathan Bransford on writing dialogue

Agent Kristin Nelson on "killer" openings--a really fantastic post about book beginnings that (usually) don't work

I'm always interested in other author's writing routines, and Allison Brennan's fascinates me!

There's a survey about *reading* self-published books over at Smart Bitches, Trashy Books

Apparently, tweets about Justin Bieber take up racks (!) of servers at Twitter

Now, how about a toasted marshmallow milkshake?

And if that doesn't hit the spot, then maybe Snickers cupcakes will do??? (How can they not when they're this: "The final version consists of a chocolate cupcake, filled with a caramel-Snickers mixture, topped with caramel buttercream and garnished with additional Snickers and caramel sauce." (swoons)
