Rochester, here I come! (Also, Between Here and Forever for under $10--yes, really!!)

Thursday, May 12, 2011

I'm super excited because this Saturday, I'm going to be in Rochester, New York at the 6th Annual Greater Rochester Teen Book Festival--there are so many amazing authors that are going to be there--and!--I'm going to be on a panel with Melissa de la Cruz who you all know I adore. I'm going to try really hard not to fangirl too much :-)

I'll do my best to tweet about the event (I'm on twitter as escottwrites) and hopefully I'll be able to have photos too!

Okay, I know what you're waiting for so I'm bringing the links!

OH!!!

Before we get to them, I have to tell you this: Between Here and Forever is now available at both Amazon and Barnes and Noble for 9.99--pretty much paperback price! I don't know how long it'll stay this way, so if you want a copy for cheap, I'd go for it now! *

Now it's link time:

The Intern on revising and The 14 Stages of Critique Acceptance

Agent Rachelle Gardner on multi-book contracts

Author Tiffany Trent has a slam-bang of a post about writing, agents, e-books, and the realities of being published--if you read only one link out of all of these, make it this one

Pimp My Novel isn't surprised that adult mass market paperback sales are dropping

Nice piece about writers and dreaming (I think most of you know my stance on it!)

From the Washington Post, a very balanced article about the e-book boom

This is an older link, but as it looks like Apple is going to go forward with this, you might want to check out this article about using third part applications on Apple devices--like, say Kindle for your iPad

Things most definitely aren't going well for Borders -- I don't want them to disappear!!

Over at Genreality, a wonderful post about the roller coaster ride that is publishing

What can stop a story's flow?
