In my defense...
I've been busy writing. I know, it's no excuse. Yes it is. But I've got this über conference coming up in less than three weeks (with sweetie peetie Shannon Messenger), and I'm working frantically to finish up some projects. Just want to be prepared with a whole arsenal of awesome, you know? Like, if someone says, so what have you been working on in addition to this super-fabtastic manuscript? I could rub my hands together in glee and give them my oh, you don't know the half of it look, and then unleash my long list of superfly Carol-pie.
Gotta be prepared, you know?
So, to that end, I'll be blogging probably only sporadically. Writing comes first, right? But I've read a couple of really great books recently, so I'll try to post those reviews soon. Also, I have some writing posts planned and another giveaway ready to go. Good stuff coming up.
Okay, some cool news:
Shelli Johannes-Wells is having a Pay It Forward contest as a nod to Suzanne Young for having given her a jumpstart in her writing career. The prize? A personal recommendation to her agent, Alyssa Henkin at Trident Media, to help you get out of the slush pile. In order to win, you have to enter your YA/MG pitch (up to four sentences) in her comment section. In publishing, whatever boost you can get is practically gold. So GO HERE to check out the details. Contest ends this Friday, Feb 4.
ALSO, if you haven't entered yet, make sure you GO HERE to enter to win a Signed ARC of Lisa and Laura Roecker's YA mystery THE LIAR SOCIETY. Giveaway ends tomorrow, Thursday Feb 3! So HURRY!
FINALLY, if you're new to my blog...Helloooooo! Huge thank you to new and old bloggie friends alike. Happy to have you! *Tips hat*
