It's been a long time
Write Faster, an Experiment

Battles! And other stuff.

If you really want to know what I'm up to on a regular basis, come follow me on Twitter. I like it over there. 

That said, here's a blog post! I was a judge lately in two book battles. One was The Morning News, a fancy dancy grown-up literary type battle. You can read my judgement here -- of The Sisters Brothers vs. Lightening Rods. But be warned, you teenagers. These are EXTREMELY ADULT BOOKS about extremely adult stuff that might kinda turn your stomachs, plus I use so-called bad words. So, ya know. Proceed with caution. 

Then over at School Library Journal I judged a battle between Daughter of Smoke & Bone and Chime. This one is clean-cut and appropriate for all ages! Also, there was some fun back-and-forth in the comments. 

What else? 

I am reading or have just read: 
The Unseen Guest by Maryrose Wood
Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler 
Black Heart by Holly Black
The Book of Blood & Shadow by Robin Wasserman
The Secret History by Donna Tartt (re-reading)

I am a bit obsessed with Black's Curseworkers series. It is really super awesome.

Last thing: for booksellers. I am going to be at BEA in the autographing area on Wed. June 9th at 1:30.  For Invisible Inkling, my middle grade series of fun. Please come say hello and get a book!
