Holy Crap!

So I decided after like three weeks to sign into my totally abandoned blog. I. Am. A. Loser. Is it me, or does it seem like someone pressed the fast forward button? Summer is over. No one told me. This afternoon, I nearly had a panic attack in Wal-Mart. There were pumpkins everywhere, and beside them, Christmas decorations and turkeys. What the? Can we not have one holiday at a time, people? Sigh....Rant over.

Wait! Today's blog actually has a purpose. Swear. I bought, SILENCE, the third book in the Hush Hush saga by Becca Fitzpatrick. And then I defiled a plastic turkey and placed a Nutcracker in an awkward position. Er-it may have been the other way around. I don't remember but either way I'm calling it retail therapy. I went from panicked to excited about the whole experience and I just hate that none of you could be there to share in the moment with me. Sad.

And there's more. I'm sure you hoped it was over, it's not. Sorry, but I think you'll be excited about this. I was reading Chuck Sambuchino's blog better known as Guide to Literary Agents because it's AWESOME. And while reading, I came across a new publisher called Entangled Publishing and also an agent that lives close enough to stalk in person. YES! I can't mention her yet in case there may be questioning later. I'm only joking about some of that. I plan to mention her in another blog when I'm a better blog mommy and not so neglectful. For now though, new publishers. How do we feel about them? Are they scary? Do they make you feel like you're settling for less than NY, because you are. But is this a good thing or a bad thing, ya know, to not be so New York?  Please opine.


  1. I've noticed a lot of new publishers popping up now, but they are trying to stay ahead of the game and beating the big publishers out. I think it gives us more opportunities as writers.

  2. I don't think being New York or otherwise has anything to do with it. My agency's in North Carolina, and that doesn't stop them doing a heap of big deals. Publishers are distributing to bookstores all over the country, so a New York location isn't what it's all about.


Thank you for your comments. Me loves them!
