I'm a finalist in the 2011 Pacific Northwest Writers Association Literary Contest! I'm super excited. I entered the young adult novel I plan to begin querying agents with this summer. Contest winners will be announced in August. Congrats to the other finalists, including--your friend and mine--Mr. Paul Greci! (Yay, Paul!)
Links to Make You Thinks
*PW had an interesting article with children's book news from BEA 2011. Ooh, so many great books, bloggy friends! Lots to look forward to!
*Have you heard about Unbridled's 25 books for 25 cents? While it only runs from June 9th - June 11th, you can show your indie love anytime by purchasing your e-books from an independent bookstore.
*There's been a lively debate about YA this week that began with a Wall Street Journal article. Read about it here in the PW article "Are Teen Novels Dark and Depraved--or Saving Lives?"
That's it from me this week! In the comments, how about if you share what you're currently reading? That's always fun!
