Installment 3 of How I Met My Client/Agent

I really love this new How I Met My Client/Agent series on the blog and hope you do too! One of my favorite things about it is that it illustrates the many paths to finding representation. I first met Carol Berg at a pitch appointment at the Pikes Peak Writers Conference in 1999. Now, I’mContinue reading “Installment 3 of How I Met My Client/Agent”

Great News and Happy Book Birthdays!

I hope you all had a super-fantastic Thanksgiving, full of warmth, love, laughter and overstuffed bellies.  Coming back from a long weekend is always a mixed blessing.  You’re refreshed, you’re ready to go (unless you were trampled during any of the Black Friday sales, which I studiously avoided) and… Then you see the mountain ofContinue reading “Great News and Happy Book Birthdays!”

NY, World Fantasy, ALICE, etc.

It’s been a crazy week thus far, but I still wanted to jump on quickly for a few brief things. Number 1 (cue Kermit flail!): I’m truly excited to announce that ALICE by Christina Henry (that amazing novel I raved about to everyone who would listen) made Amazon’s list of Best Books of the Year:Continue reading “NY, World Fantasy, ALICE, etc.”

New Releases

Since I’m going to be on a plane for Australia this coming Thursday – Sydney for the 2014 Romance Writers of Australia Conference! – I’m posting about my exciting releases over the next couple of weeks today.  I do hope to have at least some access to social media while I’m gone (otherwise, withdrawal symptomsContinue reading “New Releases”

More whoos and hoos

Our Tuesday YA Rebels video will be up later today, giving tips on how to (and not to) find a literary agent.  I’m not ashamed to say that my thirteen year old son has to upload this for me – not because I don’t know what I’m doing, but because his tech is way moreContinue reading “More whoos and hoos”

I’m so excited that we’ll be having fantasy week here on my blog.  Check back each day for a post by wonderful fantasy authors Lynn Flewelling, D.B. Jackson, Steven Harper, Kalayna Price and N.K. Jemisin with a chance to win signed copies of their books! To kick things off, I want to start with aContinue reading “Fantasy Week”

So much

I feel like a lot of my posts are titled “So Much….”  Contrary to exaggerated predictions in 2011 about the death of publishing, 2012 has been probably the busiest year ever, so far!  So, when I find a spare second to update my blog, I feel like I’ve got a ton all stored up. ToContinue reading “So much”

Crazy week and congrats

It’s been a crazy week, which is why it’s been so quiet here on the blog.  All good, just busy, busy, busy.  However, I had to take some time out to blog because some congratulations are very definitely in order. First, huge congrats to Tammy Kaehler, whose debut mystery DEAD MAN’S SWITCH is up forContinue reading “Crazy week and congrats”
