A few random links and thoughts

Sherri L. Smith‘s blog tour continues. Today she’s at Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast.

Colleen is starting Guys Lit Wire, which will have book recommendations and interviews and more for teen guys. More info here. If you’re interested in writing one post a month, email her at colleen *at* chasingray *dot* com.

If you’re a fan of Lily Archer’s The Poison Apples, she just contributed a few posts at the Feiwel & Friends blog on stepmothers, forgiveness, and her step-favorites.

I had no idea the Agatha Awards included a Children’s/Young Adult category. Looks like there’s only one YA nominee, but congrats to all the nominated authors (via Confessions of an Idiosyncratic Mind):

A Light In The Cellar, by Sarah Masters Buckey
Bravo Zulu, Samantha!, by Kathleen Benner Duble
Cover-Up: Mystery At The Super Bowl, by John Feinstein
The Falconer’s Knot, by Mary Hoffman
Theodosia And The Serpents Of Chaos, by R.L. LaFevers

Taking a look at the rest of the nominees, Harlequin’s got two of the Best First Novel nominees. Oh, and speaking of Harlequin, I ordered How to Salsa in a Sari a few weeks back (haven’t received it yet, but free shipping. I’m cheap.). Anyway, if you want to try some of the Kimani TRU books, there’s a Black History Month special at eHarlequin. 40% off all Kimani Press titles. (Discount appears in the shopping cart.)

And, ooh! Squee! [Insert your favorite annoying expression of joy here]! L. J. Smith’s Vampire Diaries series was reissued last year, and coming this August, The Secret Circle. I loved these books. (Although, Cassie, did you really have to pick Adam? I mean, yeah, silver thread, whatever. Nick was so much hotter!)

    I was a huge fan of the Secret Circle books too. I can’t wait until they get reissued since I never owned the books, just read my friend’s copies. (And I agree. Nick was far superior to Adam.)
