Shameless Self-Promotion

I don’t think the obvious fact that I can’t keep up with this blog should stop me from starting other new blogs, do you?

I have two new work-related blogs. One is called TheFAYZ. It’s written as a sort of bridge between books in my GONE series. GONE is out now. HUNGER: a GONE novel comes out next year. TheFAYZ is written by a non-book character named Sinder. She’ll see some of what happens on-camera in the books, but otherwise will be involved in a separate, free-standing storyline, with new characters.

And I get to have fun with Photoshop.

The second blog is still in development. I’m calling it Stupid Blog Name. It will be a group blog focusing on YA literature. So far I have a kidlit agent and former Harper editor, a Simon editor, and a handful of YA authors. I’ll add a bookseller or two, more editors and writers. And I want to add some actual kids — you know, the readers. I have a piece of lovely artwork up there holding the place down for me. I hope to have it all up and running in a week or two.

    Drat. I think you now officially post on more blogs than I do. Are you intent on making me work for my title, "Plague of the Intertubes" or something?

    Very interesting links. I've learned that politics and Young Adult literature don't mix. I've learned that kids are now doing all the web sites. And I've learned that you apparently have too many names to keep up with.

    Who's the crusty old bald guy in the picture with your lovely young wife?
