A Letter To My Mother, With No Swearing (Just As She Prefers It)
posted on Sunday 12th of May 2013
I suppose this post could be for mothers of creative, strange children everywhere, but mostly, it’s for my mom. My original plan was to write this note for her on a piece of stationery, but then I looked around my office. Somehow it didn’t seem very meaningful to give her something jotted in Sharpie on a Scorpio Races postcard or the corner of a Shiver bookmark or on the back of a Raven Boys bookplate or in the blank part of an index card tha...
Inside of My Sketchbook (and by extension, my black heart)
posted on Friday 3rd of May 2013
On Facebook, I shared a warm-sketch I did this morning while brainstorming about the look I want for The Dream Thieves' animated book trailer. It is this:Someone asked me if I would give a "tour" of my sketchbook. I actually have a few laying around at any given time, but this is one of my oldest. If you want to see the contents of my black heart, you can click on the image below to see the full set.As you can see, I used to take it...
Readers Make A Millionty Calories
posted on Monday 22nd of April 2013
Today I thought I'd post about one of the unexpected pleasures of being an author. There are certain cool things about being an author that had always I hoped for — like good reviews, delighted readers, cool covers, sweet film deals. But then there are cool things that I just never even thought to look forward to. For instance, a bunch of teens sent me video of the Shiver musical they had done at their school. Fan art and photo manips and gifs ...
Publishing Does Not Want to Eat Your Heart
posted on Wednesday 17th of April 2013
I got a writing/ publishing question from a reader and it was something I wondered myself when I got started, so I figured I’d answer it on the blog. Here ‘tis:I've been trying to query for one of my novels for the past few months now, and already I'm racking up on my 17th rejection. However, three of those rejections the agents took some time away from their cookie-cutter mold to say that my story was "very interesting" but "They would have...
Things Fall Down

What do you know about goats?For most of my life, this is what I knew about goats:1. They have square pupils.2. They are clever.3 They are mentioned in the following songOh mares eat oats and does eat oatsand little lambs eat ivyA kid’ll eat ivy toowouldn’t you?4. They have cute little hoofie-woofies.5. They are one of the reasons I legally changed my name when I was 16.And I wanted one. Well, I mean, I wanted one in a vague, distant way, the...
A Pile of News
posted on Monday 1st of April 2013
This shall be a small pile of miscellaneous news. I know I have been silent, but it's because I have been touring and lurking in places with no internet. I've wanted to communicate with the outside world. Really. Truly. I have things to say. But my cell phone dowsing for signal has been unsuccessful. So. Without further ado:1. The US paperback of The Scorpio Races is officially out today. It has some cool things the hard cover doesn't...
2013 Critique Partner Love Connection
posted on Tuesday 19th of March 2013
I guess it's that time of year again. I've been asked several times in the last few months if I would do another critique partner love connection on my blog and I now have enough requests that I'm going to go ahead and do it. These seems to be a yearly thing. I don't think I need to change the wording from the original Critique Partner Love Connection, so here we go:Okay. As y'all know, I have two critique partners (Tessa Gratton and Brenna Yovan...
