Friday Links

Hello there. It's been a hectic week for me, which means I've been a bad blogger. The good news is that Husband read the first seventeen pages of my revised novel, which is now in first person with a narrator ten years younger than she was a month ago (WHAT?! I know, it's CRAZY up in here!) and he liked it!!!!!

Although, on second thought, Husband tends to like everything I write. I think it's because if he says it sucks mud puddles I might lose my will to eat and then no one will come up with what to make for dinner. (Note: I don't have to make the dinner, but I do have to delegate what we will have. Also, Husband refuses to flavor anything. Like, he won't even salt it. So. Weird.)

In short, here are a couple links I wanted to share with you:

1. New Albany Blog: Check out this blog supposedly by a fifteen year old who is living on a commune. I dare you to read more than three entries and still think it's about an actual teenage girl. Dudes, this is TOTALLY a pretend blog for a forthcoming YA series. Right? Right? Someone back me up on this one.

Also, I can't decide if I like it, because it's creative or if I am annoyed by it because it seems so pleased with itself. Thoughts?

2. Unicorn Vengeance If you ever enjoy reading my Tales From the Used Book Store posts, you MUST check out this amazingly bad Harlequin novel. You better believe I'm going to check and see if we've got any books by this gifted author next week at the store. Oh yes.

Time for some tea and some writing and lots of sleeping.


  1. It is glaringly obvious that the New Albany blog is a hoax or tie-in. That girl looks like Zac Efron in a wig. She also has flawless eyebrows and skin.

    Hurrah for the drastic changes that come with revision. Gets you excited for the story again, though, doesn't it?

  2. So true, Jazz! I admit, the first thing about that blog that made me suspicious was the girl's appearance.

    It does make me excited--revisions are hard but fun.
