blog hopping #7

here’s another “here, but not here” post while i’m busy drafting DIVIDED (sequel to DUALED).

and it’s my birthday! but i can’t say how old i am because i might not be allowed to write YA anymore.

so on that note, it’s been a pretty scattered week…

along with a bunch of other lucky 13s, i got to participate in ink & angst’s gatecrasher series, where we talk about breaking through into the publishing industry. it’s definitely Ā  interesting to see how while each author’s experience is truly unique, there are some things that apply across the board. like the lows of rejection after rejection, the suck that is the waiting, and the awesomeness of the YA community at large. thanks so much to author pam witte at ink & angst for letting us don the gatecrasher hats for a bit!

over at friday the thirteeners, MG author kristen kittscher is up for a dare courtesy of yours truly!

on the lucky 13s blog, the 13th of may meant a super-awesome-bomb-diggity-news post! the announcement of an audio edition for DUALED gets a mention. thanks to author rachele alpine for that post!

and i’ve always thought the birth of a book was pretty cool. thanks for sharing, adrienne!

back to work. iced coffee? yes, please. just keep them coming.

  1. Elsie,

    Happy Birthday! Hope you rock it and have fun drafting your sequel. I wish you loads of iced coffee to keep you going!

    Thanks for the Gate Crashers mention! It’s always interesting, entertaining and informative to see how similar yet different each writer’s journey is! Sharing experiences is a great way to share the love of writing and encourage other writers to just jump on in!

    I love writing, but blogging Gate Crashers is so much fun! Maybe I should have been a publicist. šŸ™‚ Anyway, I’d be honored to have you back at when DUALED debuts for an author interview. Keep me posted!

    • Hi there, Pam!!

      Thank you so much for the birthday wishes!

      It was a lot of fun to be a gatecrasher for your blog–thanks for letting me join in šŸ™‚ Once you get published, I still hope you keep the series up. It’s got great advice for aspiring writers! And I would LOVE to do an author interview for DUALED when it debuts, thank you!

      Have a great writing day (whether it’s a WIP or Ink)!!

  2. Elsie, here’s hoping you kick your birthday’s ass.

  3. Hey, this is a super duper sekrit book that’s going to sell for 7 figures, remember? No more teasers, April! šŸ˜€
