Here are several news and special feature articles I’ve enjoyed the past week (If you missed any of the previous posts click here to see them all):
1. The biggest trend in books these days are middle grade graphic novels. Read all about the resurgence here.
2. Oh Middle Grade! (OMG) is a year old endeavor to bring a celebration of MG books and authors to under served populations. The bookfest had a successful start in Columbus, Ohio last year and this week it comes to Denver with another impressive line-up of authors. Maybe your city will be next!
3. Barnes & Noble gets support from this writer in SAVE BARNES & NOBLE!
4. Have you ever queried your manuscript? You sometimes get a response and often that response takes months. Laura Backes of Children’s Book Insider proposes a new method to editors and agents.
I’ll be back on Friday with a review of ROSETOWN.
Oh! Middle Grade looks like a lot of fun, and I just love the Tattered Cover Bookstore. Lucky you. Thanks for the links.
