“I find being fully responsible for anything very uncomfortable.”
Authorial blogger round-up time. Here’s just a sampling of some news and posts that I spied with my little eye:
- Susan Beth Pfeffer (who supplied the summation of my life in the title up there) has a great post on the tiny flaws readers find in her works and how simultaneously ridiculous and exasperating that can be.
- Adam Rex talks about various covers.
- Lisa Yee has arrived at the Thurber House as their writer in residence. Pssst! Thurber House! You wanna blogger in residence? I could swing that. Really. No skin off my teeth, I assure you.
- Siobhan Vivian just got her new book cover and she couldn’t be more pleased.
- Linda Sue Park points out that the last eight Caldecott winners have something in common. And it’s not their hair.
