  1. I had a dream last night where there was no witty and useful round-up of YA-related publishing news every Friday. Then I woke up and remembered the existence of Kate Hart, and sobbed into my pillow with relief.

    Nightmares are scary.

  2. lol@ Michelle's comment.

    Thank you for this list. Loved Steph Su's 'What's missing?'

    Thanks for the mention :)

  3. Good links Kate!

    Puff Daddy (or whatever he is called now) is scary as a zombie. Turn him back!

  4. Thanks for all the great links! Definitely going to read the one about lying. What character doesn't lie . . . even if it's just to herself?

  5. @Michelle terrifying! As always, amazing (and exhaustive) collection of links, thanks so much Kate! Makes it hard to keep writing when I just want to read these links all day...

  6. Awesome round-up Kate!! (Why am I picturing you running around in spurs with a lasso?) I need to think about this for a minute! LOL

  7. another fabulous line-up!!

    thanks so much for all the links!!


  8. Another great collection of links! Thanks for the call out!

  9. You guys are seriously the best. You always lead us in the write... er, right direction on Fridays.

    Sorry. That was a super lame pun.

    And I know you already have one of these, but I have a surprise for you at my blog:

    Thanks again!
