Spring Shameless Awakening!

Spring has sprung!  Well, here in sunny Los Angeles at least. I think part of the country is still snowed in.

Sorry about that.

But if your skies are grey and you snow shovel still in use, you can still bask in the glory of our shamelessness!!!!

Jennifer Nielsen is back with a couple of awesomes for this week's shameless post:

  1. THE FALSE PRINCE is an Honor Book for the 2013 E.B. White Read-Aloud Award.
  2. It has also been nominated as a Global Read Aloud Book for 2013, and we'd all appreciate it if you'd hit that link and go vote for THE FALSE PRINCE!!!

Dawn Metcalf is having an exclusive arc giveaway for YA Book Bloggers in her "I ♥ Book Bloggers!" Giveaway featuring a signed INDELIBLE arc & swag! Information on her blog at, official form at

If you're really going winter weather stir crazy, maybe you should book a trip to Los Angeles this summer?  The annual SCBWI LA conference is just around the corner, and our very own Mike Jung (aka Emperor Mike) will be on faculty this year!  Definitely a reason to sign up, in my very humble opinion!

Martina Boone and Adventures in YA Pub made the Writer's Digest 101 Best Websites for Writers. Also, as always, they have a giveaway every Friday and S.T. Underdahl will be guest mentoring the May First Five Pages Workshop which will open for subs on the 4th if writers want to get their mss ready. And finally, and most importantly, they're doing a May Pitch +250 contest starting April 28th. The judges involved are absolutely stellar, a list of amazingness never to be surpassed.  Er, did I mention I'm one of them?  :D

Speaking of me, I've updated my appearances schedule for May and holy moly, I'm going to be a busy girl.  You can catch me at Romantic Times Booklovers' Convention, Book Expo America (signing Thursday, May 31 at 10:30am at Table 12!), and the Ontario Teen Book Festival, just to name a few!  If you're there, please come say HELLO!
