I’m a big fan of books in general. If you suggest it, I will read it. (well, usually)
But I do favor certain genres over others – namely, I *heart* YA fiction and realistic fiction.
Add the two together and I’m giddy.
So I’m completely thrilled that YA realistic fiction seems to be on the upswing (and this thrilledness is doubled because my WIP, which is hanging out with betas, is realistic YA, and maybe I’ll actually, accidentally be a part of a trend). Yes, I know thrilledness isn’t a word, but I’m kinda liking it.
And I’m kinda liking that my search for three betas ended up with me having not three, not four…not even five…but SEVEN betas. Holy crap!
(now let’s just hope I don’t get conflicting advice from all of them…hah)
Anyway, I’m basing my prediction on several things.
#1 – the Contemps – take the challenge…do it…do it….
#2 – this awesome post by agent Sarah LaPolla
While loving a vampire or werewolf or other random creature is maybe a little cool, I’ll take a real, nerdy, flawed guy any day. Ordinary trumps the threat of being maimed/devoured/drained by your beloved.
And winning free stuff trumps everything!
(kudos for my clunky segway)
Michelle Hodkin is giving away an ARC of Beautiful Darkness by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl and a signed copy of The Eternal Ones by Kirsten Miller.
Some thoughts to ponder…EW posed the question:
Now go forth, ponder, enter to win, and have a great weekend!
^I mean this literally
P.S. Congrats to Sangu on getting an agent!
