* Much as I’m tempted to do the latest writerly meme (“go to page 77 in your WIP…”), it’s waaay too spoilery to post publicly right now. I don’t hate my WIP today, so I’m kinda sorry I can’t share. * My post over at EMU’s Debuts yesterday was one of the harder things I’ve [...]
Today on EMU’s Debuts, I discuss my special relationship with swag.
The Class of 2k12 is a group of YA and MG authors who all have novels that will debut in 2012. They’re an awesome bunch of writers and I’m so glad to be a part of the group. We’d love to have you along for the ride! It’s been a big week for us so [...]
Why yes, they are print ARCs. And yes, they are lovely. And yes, I’m squeeing too much to be of any use at all at the Day Job. And that blurb? The one that’s too small to read from this distance? That’s Karen Cushman. Karen. Cushman. Blurbed The Wicked and the Just. “Thrilled” does not [...]

Shiny new author photos courtesy of the talented and friendly Tacey Abney of Laughing Willow Photography. There’s one on the landing page and another on my bio page. I’m generally [...]
The book that sold as Without the Walls has a new title – The Wicked and the Just. If you’d like to know how it got from there to here, I’m over at EMU’s Debuts today talking about it. Can’t wait for cover art!
Regret to inform that Monday’s installment of J’s Medieval Bookshelf was delayed due copyedits, and the debauchery and revelry that occurred as a result of me finishing them on deadline. JMB will appear on Wednesday. In lieu of me geeking out over books, I’m over at Dear Teen Me today, so you can amuse yourself [...]
Copyedits have arrived, and are currently consuming my very soul. This will result in some wisdom and possibly a blog post or two once my brain grows back and I’m not putting in 20-hour days between the copyedits, the Day Job and Chez J just to make my deadline. So here are some random things: [...]
