Made you jump, right? I know it’s been a while; how have you been?
I felt I had to post before the August 16th, which would have been the anniversary of my last post. Yes, ANNIVERSARY. Gak.
So instead of boring you with my whole year in review in one post (which would undoubtedly send you directly to sleep), I am doing a little giveaway in return for your suggestions. I would like some recommendations for some smart, witty YA novels. Something along the line of the movie Easy A. And if you haven’t seen Easy A, you should. Seriously. Watch it now.
In return for your recommendations, I will randomly pick a commenter to receive some swag, to include a lovely book by Laura Kinsale (Seize the Fire), along with an old copy of Jane Austen’s Persuasion (printed in 1947), and a 1901(ish) copy of Dickens’ David Copperfield, both from the motherland (mine). There may also be European chocolate, a notebook and a fountain pen involved. Who knows?
USA mailing addresses only please, so I may save myself from being bankrupted at the Post Office.
Later posts will touch on some of the exciting things that happened in the last 361 days, including a visit to the White House, getting a critique (gulp) from the spectacular Jen Nadol, the DFW Writers’ Conference and Susan Dennard and Sarah J Maas’ incredible writers’ masterclass.
So please – let me know how you’ve been doing, and give me some YA book love.
