I KnowToday's Tune:
Happy Friday! Another week has come and gone. And stuff.
It's a little late and I'm a little burned out, so let's go with a few links, shall we?
In case you missed it:
You should definitely read the Vanity Fair article where Lauren Myracle discusses the National Book Award fiasco and is a total class act.
You should also check out The Rejectionist's YA Op-Ed Mad Lib, for your convenience when writing editorials about how awful/dark/tragic/trashy/etc. today's fiction for youth is and how teens should be in the Girl Scouts of America selling cookies or something. Because it's wholesome and not HORRIBLE AND DAMAGING. Snerk.
The release date for YA darling Tahereh Mafi's debut novel is drawing ever closer. All signs point to this one being a VERY BIG DEAL.
Lastly, check out AARdvark's thoughts on the Amazon vs. Big Publishing headbutting match. Really, New York Times??
Have an awesome weekend, dudes. And stay tuned for next week. I may or may not have an announcement to make. We shall see. DUN DUN DUNNNNNNN.
