Just dropping a line to say that the kind folks at Kirkus asked me to write an article about “How I Did It” – meaning, how I got published. The idea was for me to give my perspective as someone who both is published and works in publishing. It was really cool of them to ask me to do this (and to call me a “publishing insider”–if by that they mean “publishing gossip“, then yes, true dat/double true), and I had a lot of fun writing the article! You can find the full text here.
In other news, I’m in the final stages of writing TANDEM 2. It’s so weird to me that I’m on my way to a final version of the sequel to a book that hasn’t come out yet and won’t for another 11 months, but that’s the publishing machine for you. We work ahead. Most of the time. Hopefully. I’ve also been reading a ton of manuscripts for our fall 2013 launch here at my place of employment, which is always fun. I’ve just been reading a lot in general, so I’m planning on doing another book recommendations post soon, but I’m constantly putting “Things I’ve Read That I Loved” posts on my Facebook page, if you’re looking for a good book to read right this minute.
