Happy Friday

I'm soo sorry for my lack of real posts this week. This week has been crazy from getting my manuscript back with way more comments than I expected to not going to sleep until it was done, and sending my first query EVER. But next week will be better and I will give good posts! I'm not querying anymore until April 15. SCBWI will post the registration and info for the annual conference, so I'm hoping to find out what agents will be there and not query them until I meet them. It will also give me time to get responses from the people I've already query. This should tell me if the query is effective and who knows, I may even have critiques. It will also free up time for the blog! ;).

Now for the book hop hosted by crazy-for-books

"If I gave you £50 (or $80) and sent you into a bookshop right now, what would be in your basket when you finally staggered to the till?"

Matched, So Shelley, Hex Hall, If I Stay, Sea,  and Overboard

If you leave a comment or follow me please leave a link so I can hit you back!!


  1. I hope SCBWI is posting the schedule soon. I'm trying to decide if I'm going this year. I just registered for the national RWA conference (an amazing YA line up), so it will have to be good for me to go to LA.

  2. Wow! What a great question this week. I always peek at other people's book piles at the checkout link at B&N. That doesn't make me a voyeur, does it?

    The exhibitionist in me has posted my own bookstore shopping list -- and it's not as predictable as you may think!

    Hop on over to my blog for all the suspense and chills of my TBR list -

    Happy Hop Friday!

  3. Sign up for every agent or editor critique you can get! They are well worth the money...Make sure you get some business cards with your info to hand out to people you want to stay in touch with...and you will meet people you want to stay in touch with...Have fun!

  4. Probably some adult sci-fi, and some interesting and quirky YA magical realism that ventures into new territory.
