As part of the Writers on Writing bloghop, I'm sharing how I write and what I'm working on.
"SMART GIRL" BY SAMANTHA HAHN Last week Colin D. Smith and Katy Upperman each blogged about their writing processes. You should check out their posts (Colin’s is here, Katy’s is here, and for good measure here’s Rebekah Faub...

Join in this December for the YA Superlative Blogfest. Four days of fun and tons of 2013 YA books. Click the link for details.
Three years ago, Katy Upperman, Jessica Love, Alison Miller and I sat around in this posh wine bar slash library, talking about the evolution of literature and its role in society, when we had a brilliant idea for a literary ...

What I've been up to, including a certain talent you might be jealous I possess. Plus, a short excerpt from my current WIP. :)

I expected the big thing to be so much bigger, but the way it was blown out of proportion didn't bother me. I think 12-year-olds would make a bigger deal of Taylor's actions than we would. Did Henry and Lucy hang onto a ridiculous grudge for too long? Absolutely. But I think it had less to do with what Taylor did and more to do with the feeling of losing your best friend without a word from her, of losing your friend and first love without an explanation. At 12, I think that could hurt a lot. 

Interesting to get your take since we had differing opinions on it. :)

I did feel like Lucy and Henry's anger at Taylor was realistic because what she did was disappear for no reason. Her need to run away over something so silly and then actively avoid Henry when he came to talk to her about it right afterward is what made me loose sympathy for Taylor as a character.

My review of CROAK. This book is so, so, good. And hilarious!

Join the YA Book Club this July. We're delving into a summer reading classic. Head on over to my blog to vote for the book you want to read, then join us at the end of July for an online discussion about the book. 
PHOTO BY CHRIS SHIPMAN July is almost upon us! I feel this is a very apt phrase for what I’m feeling because somehow June is ending and I feel like, well, July is about to launch itself on top of us. Like, next week July...

I know it's only February, but here's the best book I've read all year. (And I won't be surprised if it's in my top 5 come December.) Click the link for my full review.

On the book that's taunting me, my underdone WIP, and exactly what it's like to eat raw. Also, some great literary humor.

This month, the YA Book Club is reading SECOND CHANCE SUMMER. We'll be chatting about the novel on September 3.

Join in! It's like your typical book club but online (and, sadly, without refreshments). Click the link below for more info.

Get ready for summer reading! For the next two months, the YA Book Club is getting in the spirit with a summer reading list book in July and a beach read in August. More details to come, plus a vote for the book you want to read most. 
Dear friends, I’m afraid I’ve been thinking. A dangerous pastime. I know.* But it’s summer. And that makes me think of two things: beach reads and summer reading lists. That gave me an idea: a twist on the YA book cl...
