Thursday linky things

For those of you who love teasers I put one for Flyboy up over at Grapemo.

For those of you who want a morning challenge, don't forget about laurasalas  and her wonderful photopoetry of 15 words of less. 

lkmadigan  has the latest in her series of author interviews this one features bostonerin  the author of the just released MODELS DON'T EAT CHOCOLATES.

And because we all love round-ups (we do all love round-ups, don't we) Lynn Hazen is hosting the February Carnival of Children's Literature, with a theme of "We Love Children's (and YA) Books". She says: "Tell us what you love about reading, reviewing, writing, or illustrating children's (and YA) books. What do you love about getting good books into the hands of children and youth? What do you love (or even what breaks your heart) about the world of children's books?" Submissions are due by February 23rd, at the Carnival site.

cynthea  who amazes me with the amount of time she spends sharing her knowledge with others, has a great series of posts up about, well, writing and selling the series. Post #1, Post #2, and Post #3

From slayground  come this: Rita Williams-Garcia will be chatting live at the readergirlz forum TODAY, Thursday, February 12th. The event will begin at 6 PM PST/9 PM EST and last for about an hour. Drop by the readergirlz forum to discuss her novel No Laughter Here, which is this month's readergirlz book pick.

jeannineatkins  has a great post up about writing picture book biographies.  

For those of you who love a contest, we have them all over the place this week. First you can enter to win a copy of SAY THE WORD by onegrapeshy  and then jamarattigan  is running a Valentine's day contest to win a unique little piece of Hawaii.

Today is also the last day over at d_michiko_fwhere you have the chance to win a copy of NORTH OF BEAUTIFUL by Justina Chen Headley.

And last, but totally not least,  Miss Rumphius has posted a great round-up of books on "low-brow" topics that appeal to young readers. From the scatalogical to the unmentionable (poop to underwear), she has an awesome thematic booklist of nonfiction titles that are worthy of attention.

Have fun reading!

You're welcome.

I know, it's a lot of links but not all will appeal to everyone, right? :)

Woot! Thanks for linking to my low-brow post!

You're welcome. I need to get back on the linking bandwagon...that's what blogging is all about. :)

Who am I?I was born on the Cancer/Leo cusp and share a birthday with Ernest Hemingway and Robin Williams. The similarities don't stop there as I can go from depressed to ecstatic without ever passing go. I feel scared most of the time though my friends call me brave and I find it easier to believe in my friends than to believe in my own abilities to make what I want out of my life.

Who am I? A wife, a mother, a daughter, and even, gulp, a grandmother.

Who am I? A writer who never gets tired of playing with words, even when the words are hard to find. A writer of books for children and articles for grown-ups and many things in-between.

Who am I? A motivational speaker, writing instructor, workshop leader and full-time follower of dreams.

Who am I? Read and find out.

"Successful writers are not the ones who write the best sentences. They are the ones who keep writing. They are the ones who discover what is most important and strangest and most pleasurable in themselves, and keep believing in the value of their work, despite the difficulties."
--Bonnie Friedman

"As writers, we must be willing to feel our sadness, our anger, our terror, so we can reach in and find our sweet vulnerability that is just sitting there waiting for us to come back home."
--Nancy Slonim Aronie

"Writers write about what obsesses them. You draw those cards. I lost my mother when I was 14. My daughter died at the age of 6. I lost my faith as a Catholic. When I'm writing, the darkness is always there. I go where the pain is."
--Anne Rice
