Networking.

I just end up panicking and telling people weird untruths about my homeland.

LIBRARIAN: Hello I work in this library.

SARAH: I love libraries.

SARAH: In my land, we court people by throwing potatoes at their head. If someone hits you in the head with a potato, you have to get married.

LIBRARIAN: …

SARAH: (whispers to self in agony) Why is ‘have you read any good books lately’ so hard to say?

I’m asked at least once a week how to get published. Once upon a time, this was a very straightforward answer:

1. Write a novel.

2. Write a query letter.

3. Send the query letter to agents or to editors.

4. Rinse and repeat until said agents and editors ask to see the rest.

5. Rinse and…

Aggghhh thank you Maggie Stiefvater for writing this.
This is exactly what I actually need to say to half a dozen friends and family members in my inbox right now.

Smart stuff. Specially as a filthy non-American I was like ‘tell me about this… club of Sam’s…?’

Gavriel & Jared hitting it off (The Lynburn Legacy /The Coldest Girl in Coldtown crossover)
Yay! I finally did it! I wanted to do this one because I knew it would be super fun, and it definitely was!  It is a pretty crazy crossover, they make a weird but very sexy couple. 
Thanks to letmedrawsomething for letting me do the counter art but sadly I couldn´t come up with any good dialog for this two…:(

A sorcerer. A vampire. A crossover. IT IS FATE. (And super cute.)

Jared poem!

lynburnboy:

J is for just stay alive pleaaaseeee!

A is for always getting into ‘tight’ (pun intended) situations

R is for is being ridiculously attractive

E if for entertaining us throughout the series

D is for Deat- No! its for… for…. being not dead…. yep….. that’s it……..totally

Maybe it’s time for another snippet. Maybe it should be Jared POV. Since there are beautiful poems of missing him and all. ;)

The first people a dictator puts in jail after a coup are the writers, the teachers, the librarians — because these people are dangerous. They have enough vocabulary to recognize injustice and to speak out loudly about it. Let us have the courage to go on being dangerous people.
