Here are some great links on writing, the industry, and all things book related. Some are serious, and some are just downright hilarious. We highly recommend you read them!
- The One On Lists
– Alexandra Bracken, YA author of BRIGHTLY WOVEN and the upcoming 2013 novel BLACK IS THE COLOR sheds some light on how publisher lists work – including how and why books are scheduled for different seasons. Very informative!

- The Death of the Slush Pile
- “One Man Disney Movie” Nick Pitera Disney Medley Music Video
– A continuation of Alex Bracken’s previous post – this time on what list launches are. Another great article!
– We’re pretty sure you’ve all heard by now that Jennifer Lawrence has been cast as Katniss for THE HUNGER GAMES movies (which all of us are THRILLED about!). But did you see the statement from Suzanne Collins over the casting of Lawrence? Cause it’s pretty awesome!
– An article looking at the death of the publisher’s slush pile – and how vital the role of a literary agent is now.
– If there is one thing you should know about us LTWF girls, it’s that we love Disney – so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that we absolutely loved this video!
