I just need a nap is all.
For my usual "inspirational" mumbo jumbo (I like to call it thinly veiled whining, hehe), please head on over to Adventures In Children's Publishing today. I talk about my dreams and how bringing them to fruition didn't exactly go as planned, but it turned out well in the end anyway.
Also, I'm a little late to this thanks to that 1k posts thing, but you MUST go congratulate my dear friend Jenn Johansson on selling her first novel in GERMANY. She has great stuff to say about selling foreign first and what, exactly, a literary scout can do for you. I am so very excited that INSOMNIA will be published—YA psychological horror/thriller FTW!
And finally, I just got my hands on Laini Taylor's DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE. I absolutely adored LIPS TOUCH, and I can't wait to dig into this baby. If you don't know of Laini, you should. Her blog is one of my favorites, because she always posts the prettiest, most inspirational pictures. If I could steal someone's life, it might just be hers (Which is kind of creepy, sorry, Laini!).
That's about it from me. It's stormy, and I can't help but snuggle up in bed with a book. It must be done.
