Buried by Robin Merrow MacCready (Dutton, 2006) is the young adult winner of the Edgar Award, given by the Mystery Writers of America. Room One: A Mystery or Two by Andrew Clements (Simon & Schuster, 2006) won in the juvenile division. Read a Cynsations interview with Robin.
"Cynsations:" an interview snapshot from Faye Likes Words: "a blog about writing, editing, publishing and associated blogs. I want to help other writers find good information using this 'bloogle for writers' blog."
Going Goth: An Interview with Cynthia Leitich Smith from Suite101.com. Also check out the latest review of Tantalize (Candlewick, 2007).
Reminder: Vampress.net is giving away two autographed copies of the novel (see sidebar for information).
Thanks to the self-proclaimed "Marian the Librarian" and her YA reading group at Cedar Park Public Library in Cedar Park, Texas. I enjoyed visiting with them on Saturday morning.
Thanks also to Topher and the YA reading group at BookPeople in Austin, Texas. On Saturday afternoon, we enjoyed a Sanguini's-style feast (really! think: chocolate drops with M&M centers for eyes), and then discussed Tantalize (Candlewick, 2007). For giveaways, I provided bookmarks, copies of a bibliography of recommended gothic fantasy novels, a Sanguini's cutting board, and a Sanguini's T-shirt.
