Book News: Around the Internet #1 / Writing Tips from the Pros #3


Book News
                    around the internet



So I usually do longer news posts when something big happens, but sometimes there are lots of little things I want to share with you that don't necessarily fit into Writing Tips or something like that.  And for when I'm lazy.  So, inspired by Christina Reads YA, I decided to do a shorter links post for those times.  Hers are way more detailed and cooler and you should read them, but hopefully you find something fun and interesting here too!  I think this may end up subsuming Writing Tips From the Pros.
