In My Mailbox - August 14th, 2011

Every time I think about this meme, I want to sing the Blues Clues mail song. (Proof that I am the mother of a toddler!). My mail box was really quiet this week! So sad. :( I did get two fun books about writing though. I've finally taken the plunge and started working on my first YA novel. It's an idea I've had for a long time, but have been too scared to attempt. Speaking with all these fabulous authors though and doing the YA Rebels audition, I was just so inspired. I couldn't resist the call anymore.

Ahh! I'm writing! I'm actually at an indie coffee shop right now. I feel like such a stereotype. Haha! I found out the wine bar has wifi though. I think I may switch my babysitter's hours to afternoon so I can go there to write. Doesn't that sound like a LOT more fun?

See you around next week for another IMM. In the mean time, do not forget to sign up to win a July release. The deadline to enter is TODAY! We're also giving away three autographed books over at Authors are ROCKSTARS! Kiersten White, Stephanie Perkins and Andrea Cremer were kind enough to sign a book for our listeners when we interviewed them last month. Oh and I forgot to mention - we're now on iTunes! Go to our website for more details. You can now get the podcast directly on your iPod. Wahoo!

EDIT: I created a new blog to talk about my writing adventures. Click here and follow me! :)

In My Mailbox was created by The Story Siren. I'm just happy to participate!


  1. I haven't read either of those, but they seem really good! I hope you enjoy them!

  3. Writing is sooo much fun. I hope that book helps you improve your skills!

    Stop by my IMM

  4. Bird by Bird was one of the "textbooks" I basically lived with during my creative writing classes. It's a truly excellent read.

    My IMM is over here, if you want to check it out. :)
