In the home stretch

So much to talk about today.

First, let’s talk about The Bet. You can learn about it here.   For the record, I won The Bet and don’t have to write a story (which I’m cool with because I’m on deadline and don’t have time to anyway so there). As a result of The Bet, today you will be treated to three original short stories by authors Catherine Ryan Hyde, Kimberly Pauley, and Andrew Smith.  Go read and comment on their offerings. BTW, reading these stories from established and wonderful writers is 100% free.

Next, let’s talk about the third leg of the promotional blog tour for the release of WITH OR WITHOUT YOU.  Over the next few days,  on distinguished blogs across the blogosphere, you will learn:

  • My dream apprenticeship
  • What I learned from five of my favorite authors
  • And the saga of how a master’s thesis called CHASERS became a YA novel called WITH OR WITHOUT YOU

Here’s where you’ll find me guest posting over the next week.

Monday, May 23: Cynthia at A Blog About Nothing (Author Interview)
Tuesday, May 24: Mariah at A Reader’s Adventure (Tens List)
Wednesday, May 25: Sarah atYA Librarian Tales (Review)
Thursday, May 26: Brent at The Naughty Book Kitties (Guest Post- Title Change)
Friday, May 27:Mandy at The Well-Read Wife (Review)

And finally, we should talk about the Contest.  Come back here to this blog tomorrow at 12pm CST to learn details about a contest where writers can win a full manuscript critique from a real, live editor and reading enthusiasts can win signed, first edition copies of books from today’s finest YA writers. Nothing to bid on. No purchase necessary.  All you have to do is help me spread the word about WOWY and I’ll tell you how.

More soon! Stay tuned.

UPDATE: There’s a short bit about WOWY and mini-interview on Adventures in Children’s Publishing.
