I am happy to go into the weekend without anymore stinky rejections in my inbox! Thank you to whomever it was that recommended ‘Hooked’ by Les Edgerton! I started reading it yesterday, and it explains so well the importance of the beginning of your story. I think, based on his advice, that mine is on the right track, (of course I could edit more but ask me if I really want to) but my new WIP definitely is not. I’m only 4 pages in so its okay.
I recommended Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater to the lady on the radio today. She is obsessed with Twilight and was sad about finishing the 4th book. I emailed her, suggesting this book since it is story about forbidden love and werewolves. I never thought I’d get a reply, but she did, very excited over going to look for Shiver over the weekend. Made me smile. This DJ has sons in college and her favorite book is YA. I love it.
