Operation Teen Book Drop and links

I’m on the mend, health-wise, I think. I still have a horrendous cough and practically no appetite, but at least the chills are gone. I think I’ll sleep all weekend.

In author and book news,

 is giving away a copy of Magic in the Mirrorstone and By Venom’s Sweet Sting. Note that the deadline is fast approaching! Cynthia interviews Magic in the Mirrorstone editor Steve Berman here.

ext week we’ve got a couple fun events approaching. Support Teen Literature Day is next Thursday, April 17. As part of that, YALSA and the Readergirlz divas are hosting Operation Teen Book Drop, a charitable event where publishers, authors, and whoever else wants to get involved will be donating books to numerous children’s hospitals. I’ll be heading over to one here in Seattle–check out the wiki for ideas on how you can get involved in your neighborhood. If you’re on Facebook, let the Readergirlz know that you’ll be Rocking the Drop!
