Catch-up roundup

Due to my crazy weekend, a lot of things have happened that I haven’t had the chance to post about. So, here you go, all in one post.

n       First of all, if you don’t know about Readergirlz, go check them out–they’ve got thousands of teen girls excite
d about reading. As Tiffany Trent posted on her LJ (), for Teen Read Week this year Readergirlz is hosting 31 Flavorite Authors for Teens, and Tiffany will be one of them on Oct. 2. They’ll talk to a different author every day. But don’t wait until October–they’re featuring Holly Black this month.

n       I already told you about, but you should go there again. And share it with your friends. And their friends.%

n       Speaking of which, if you’re on MySpace, you should be Corrine’s friend! And Hallowmere’s, too. (I’m there too, though I don’t go over there as often as here.)

n       I will be traveling down to L.A. in early September to talk to some YA librarians. I’m very excited about it.

n       I am spending the week catching up on my way-too-far-behind towering pile of submissions. If you’ve been patiently waiting to hear from me, fear not, the wait may be over soon. Though the wheels of justice—er, publication—do grind slowly, so if it’s not a rejection letter, it might take a little longer for deliberation. I’d post a picture, but I think the real thing is guilt-inducing enough. If you want another editorial perspective on how that goes (and/or, if you miss Miss Snark), I’ve recently discovered Editorial Anonymous, the blog of an editorial assistant who deals with this stuff in a most Miss Snark-ish manner.
