Hey there Raki!

I'd LOVE for that to happen! It's a digital-first with Bloomsbury, so if it does well enough, there's a chance it could go to paperback. But, I'm not quite sure when or if that'll happen. Fingers crossed!(less)

Dana! Hi! I'm sorry, I didn't see this here!

I actually found him on Craigslist? A breeder was selling him. He was the runt of the liter, and she was getting rid of him for $20. He's been a part of my lil' family for eight years now. His name is Mittens.

And upkeep isn't bad! He has a big ol' cage, we clean it every other week or so, and he has a wheel for running around. They need a lot of exercise, so having a room that they can run around is good for them. (less)

Deals: The Dust Alphabet by Rebecca Podos Acquired by Balzer + Bray

It's not every day that one of your favorite authors in Young Adult books sends a pitch your way, but, there I was, just a few months ago, with an email from Rebecca Podos in my inbox.

I inhaled those pages that very evening.

If for some reason you're unaware of Rebecca's gorgeous, lyrical, beautiful books, I highly recommend checking out The Mystery of Hollow Places or her LAMBDA award-winni
