This blog post is going up a bit late but it's because I just had a fabulous Skype school visit/chat!

OH! And I got news that Between Here and Forever made Amazon's YA Summer Reading List! (And is now available for less than $10!!)*

Now, the links:

Writer Unboxed on why writers need to have (very) thick skins and symbolism (with a shout-out to the wedding that yes, I got up at 5 AM and watched live and no, I'm not sorry I did. I watch Charles and Diana get married live too and it was just-the first one looked like a fairytale and this one looked like two people who knew each other's souls)

Anyway, back to Writer Unboxed and the flip side of self-promotion--be sure to check this one out, as I think it's spot on.

Dear Author has a great post about the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books

Also from Dear Author--looks like there will be new Kindles and Nooks soon...

From the Dystel & Goderich blog: How do writers stay strong?--be sure to check the comments.

Also check out this great post on ten things to avoid--or do--in your query letter

Agent Rachelle Gardener wonders if authors need Skype (I am not great as using it, but I do love it!) and the importance of reading *and* reading in the genre you write in

Agent Kristin Nelson on the importance of checking royalty statements

One last part to Getting Published Is Not Enough from How Publishing Really Works

The Intern on plots and plotting

From Genreality, the importance of passion in your writing

Over at YA Outside the Lines, Holly Schindler blogs about her writing system--I don't know how she does it! If I even tried it, I'd probably end up in the hospital!

Also check out April Henry's advice for authors--Fake It Until You Make It

Fascinating story of a first book sale

Looks like it is truly the end of Borders, as a partial or total sale of the chain seems to be coming

Okay, after that Borders news, how about some chocolate chip cookie bark? Or perhaps you'd rather have triple chocolate cookies and cream peppermint bark?

Crossing my fingers for Borders...

Ohmygosh! I just saw the paperback edition cover for THE UNWRITTEN RULE on Amazon, and it's gorgeous!
Oh, and I fully intend to take advantage of the awesome 10 buck deal. :)
