Review of Ultraviolet by RJ Anderson

Posted on Apr 12, 2012 at 7:23 am in

I’ve been meaning to review Ultraviolet by  for a few months now.   I was impressed by the author’s novels (Knife and Rebel) for middle grade readers and really interested to see how her first YA novel would turn out. I was one of a lucky few that got to beta read the first few chapters of […]

  How long did it take you to get published?   This question is not as straight-forward as it seems. There were several stages to get through. The first, finding an agent, was mercifully quick. I signed with Irene less than two months after I sent out my first query letter. From there it took […]

This hysterical blog from writer Justine Larbalestier says it all. Not anywhere close to the bottom half of that list but….

It's been close to a year and a half since I last posted in my blog. I could offer a bunch of excuses: I was busy being a mom, writing a second novel, revising the first, working, making cookies—- I could put together a list, but the truth is, I didn't update my blog because […]

Book update

Posted on Jan 13, 2011 at 4:06 pm

So you know that "final" draft I spoke of a couple of months ago? Turns out that it isn’t quite as final as I thought.  There are a couple more rounds to go. The exciting bit is that a new editor has been assigned to my novel;  Catherine has been swamped with inherited projects and so […]

Not worth Going the Distance

Posted on Dec 7, 2010 at 1:55 am

Earlier this week I went to see Disney’s "Tangled" at the theater. I could review it, but honestly, there is nothing to say but "It’s fantastic! Go see it, even if you don’t have kids." It was that funny.  So instead I’ll review the film "Going the Distance," starring Justin Long and Drew Barrymore.  I’ve […]

I really am this time. My final draft is DONE! I haven’t written much about my novel recently because it was "in transition" for several months.  Sometime in May the editor who had originally bought my book left Hyperion and I was stuck in limbo for a while without an editor, a revision letter or a […]

Awesome day

I wanted to share the picture that my 14 year old drew for my birthday. The funny thing was, I wanted to sketch a picture of Sherlock myself, but decided not to– because I didn’t want to appear obsessed.  (and I didn’t want my sister to make fun of me.) In the end- my daughter beat me […]

Movie review and other matters

Posted on May 28, 2010 at 11:52 am

I’ve taken a bit of a break from blogging recently, mostly because I haven’t come across any book or movie that I’ve really loved or hated, and also because my life update would have read something like : "Still not many patients in the clinic, still waiting for book revision notes, still breathing."I’ve been splattering my […]
