Blogging and New Projects

Have deadlines, so I leave you with this:

Ever wonder who does the reviews at ALAN Online , Teens Read Too, YA (& Kids) Books Central, The Edge of the Forest , Fuse # 8, Reviewer X, Off to Turn Another Page, Book Chic, Slayground, Reader Rabbit and many other places?

They're usually the ones who interview us, but for one week we turn the tables on several YA & MG book reviewers and ask them the hard questions! We even tackle bad reviews. You don't want to miss one answer!

Please check out the Class of 2k8's blog for the Book Reviewer Hot Seat!

There are some great interviews already:) Enjoy!

On to my projects...

I'm working on a Inspy YA, a regular YA and a paranormal YA. I have two long chapters done on the paranormal YA, but can't for the life of me work out a synopsis. Probably because I need more plotting. All I have on the regular YA is a bunch of notes and a note from my editor. The inspy YA is just a fairly thought out synopsis. I need to get the regular YA and inspy YA done fairly soon. The para just needs a synopsis and a little bit of reworking and it hsould be odne.

Anyone have an extra cup of motivation I can have? Sigh.

Cool projects. Wide variety. Are they all for Simon Pulse?

Wow! You have your hands full. Enjoy. :) Motivation? Ummm... Think about something that you want to buy with the advance money you'll earn. :)

Reviewer X said...

Amy -- I thought I'd reply as I'm one of the featured reviewers (surprisingly!). No, we're, from what I can see, independent reviewers. I communicate with publishers (Simon Pulse included) from time to time regarding review copies, but for the most part, I'm my own boss :P It's quite cool!

Thanks for blogging about it, Teri!
