It is our Blogoversary over at the YA Muses blog, and to celebrate, we're giving away a signed copy of the ARC of Veronica Rossi's beautiful debut UNDER THE NEVER SKY. This is a wonderful book, with vivid characters and gorgeous prose. I can't wait to talk about it withe the rest of the world, so hop on over and comment or follow to be entered to win, so we can chat.
In the meantime, the fellow Muses and I are all headed for a weekend of celebration in LA for the National SCBWI conference. If you will be there, please say Hi. One of the unexpected joys of embarking in the solitary pursuit of writing has been meeting so many wonderful people who love books.
I've reposted my Revision Checklist post for our "Best of" week. This is my step by step process for taking a manuscript from first draft to finished product. I hope you find it useful.
