I know I don’t have to tell you guys to vote today, right? I’m sure most of you have already taken advantage of early voting or mail-in ballots — I know I have! So with my civic duty done for the day, I can congratulate JenFW (For the Win!), whose question was overwhelmingly picked by her fellow readers to represent you in my meetings with editors. Woot Jen!
In other news, a flurry of internet activity for kt literary authors this week. Speaking of Let It Snow, a copy of which Jen wins, Pinot and Prose calls it “THE book to read with the holiday season coming up — it’s light and frothy in the most heartwarming way. A thoroughly enjoyable read.” And mango_firefly praises the “YA Dream Team” of Green, Johnson, and Myracle, writing, “each of these three phenomenally talented writers brings their own special flair for wit and language to the party.”
But that’s not all! For any of my Minnesotan readers, Ellen Booraem will be reading from The Unnameables at Gustavus Adolphus College (open to the public!) and St. Peter Middle School (private — those lucky kids!) in St. Peter, MN on November 13th. I bet it’ll be cold. Why don’t you warm up with Medford and The Goatman?
And there’s more! kt literary client Catherine Cheek has a wonderful short story with the exciting title “She’s Taking Her Tits to the Grave” in John Joseph Adams’ zombie anthology The Living Dead, which was just named to Publishers Weekly‘s Best Books of the Year list!
Who else has good news to share? I declare this a good news day (as may be obvious by my explosion of exclamation marks), and all are welcome to join in!
