Linklove Friday!

TGIF, Everyone! Our weather here in Northern AZ is actually bordering on otherworldly at this point. And while it's lovely to see people walking around in t-shirts, shorts and flip-flops in late January, it's not so lovely to watch the news stories about how our water situation will not be looking good this summer unless we get some serious precip. Still, we'll be out and about enjoying the gloriousness this weekend.

The Internet was abuzz with some great stuff this past week, including this article for aspiring authors from Rachelle Gardner on just who does all that book marketing anyway.

Shannon Hale's thoughts on an incendiary article about the readers (and writers) of young adult (YA) fiction - lowbrow or highbrow, depending on your POV - got things cooking among folks who love this genre. Here's a link to the original article that got the whole thing started. Ironically, it just makes me want to read Walter Dean Myers.

On the lighter side, if all blog posts went like this one from childrens writer/illustrator Marty Kelley, I truly would never ever get anything done:

Finally, our house would be a not-quite-as-funny place without the Bad Kitty books to entertain us. So, I thoroughly enjoyed GalleyCat's interview with Bad Kitty author Nick Bruel. I hope you do, too.
