Re: YA Query?

This is my query for my paranormal romance novel THE SCION. I've sent it to one agent... nothing so far but it's only day 2! Please, please give feedback. I need help revising, and I'm not sure which Query is better. Dear __agent___: Seventeen year-old Karen Pensky has never been much of a normal g...

Re: Scene

On the first question, one thing to keep in mind is that it's not really necessary to many details of how characters look. Writers, especially newer ones, can sometimes get caught up on this. A single detail, or maybe two, is usually enough about most characters, including main characters. Readers ...

Re: How do you write

Well, when I'm not in school (Summer and on breaks) I usually go from 11 PM to 3 AM.

I don't usually have time to write during term. But that gives me a good amount of rest from my MS!

Re: Characters Who Should Have Died

I'll go with Eeyore, from Winnie the Pooh. I never did like him. :( I LOVE HIM! He's my favorite. Also, I agree with writer. Compared to the amount of overblown Love V's (Not love triangles -- Don't even get me started) The one in the hunger games is extremely understated, and the stakes of the ser...

Re: Fade to Black?

I'm a huge fan of Kody's :-) She's one of the few authors I've made a point to email and thank for writing the book she did. I wish I'd had The DUFF when I was in high school. It might have changed everything for me. *love* Well, if you wrote her I'm sure she knows, but I'm sure she'll be glad to h...

This means their days are filled with masses of e-mail, contract negotiations, edits, submitting books to editors, handling rights, etc. the lis...
