For the end of September guest blogging, I will ping all that have expressed interest on 09/07. You can still let me know if you'd like to blog. It doesn't have to be according to a theme at all, but if you'd like to work from a theme, how about this: Tell us about a book that influenced you and left a strong impact, whether in life or writing--it can be another person's book or your own (how your book made you grow, etc). I'm going to try to make little book icons for each guest-blogger's post.
Interviews are filled for this coming week, but there are plenty of slots open after that--so keep applying if you're interested! Here's a FAQ if you have questions.
August and September = the busiest time of the year for me due to the video game production cycle...(opposite of books!) As you can see, I'm a little belated posting this news update.
A lot of plans still going on for CLAN and Book2. I'm going through a general cleanup of Book2, which I'll hopefully finish tonight. I'll let it sit for a while as I write more. I have so many ideas for it, but I'm not jumping to conclusions yet.
--I went over to Richelle Mead's signing. Her fourth book for Vampire Academy is out.
--Pssst, Catching Fire is out 09/01.
--Remember, Colleen Lindsay is closed to submission again on Sept 1st.
--Nathan Bransford posts about publishing time. (I agree with him. Coming from the fast-paced video game industry, the book industry's slug-crawl drives me nuts.)
--Editorial Ass writes an informative post about editors.
--First comics, now...first picture book on iPhone.
--Authors, the deadline to opt out of Google settlement is 9/4.
