The Long Road to 2009

First of all, congratulations are in order again.  Two more of my fellow 2009 debut authors have books on the shelves!

I cannot wait to read these two! Congratulations, Sarah MacLean and Erin Dionne!

I also want to let you know about a series of blog interviews I’ll be hosting with my fellow Debs, called "How They Got Here." 
It should be an especially helpful series for teens who write, teachers, and anyone who wants to write for kids.  2009 debut authors will be dropping by to talk about how their writing in school shaped the authors they are today, what teachers can do to make a difference, how they revise, and how they found their agents and editors.  (You’ll even be able to read a successful query letter or two!)  If you know a teacher or two who might be interested, please share the link!

The series of interviews starts Monday, February 9th with Sarah MacLean, author of The Season.
