Guess what’s coming up? It’s the James River Writers’ conference! In preparation, I am:
A. Putting together a pitch for The Book of Foxes for the pitch session for which I’ve signed up. (The really tough bit was choosing just a few of the illustrations to represent the more than 150 drawings that are an integral part of the book. I ended up cobbling together illustrations from different parts of the book into three pages of pics: one that introduces the three most important characters, one that’s a full-page action sequence, and one that shows a couple of the supporting mythological critters.)
B. Reading the Malinda Lo books I haven’t already, because she’s going to be there. I enjoyed Ash and Huntress pretty well, but the epic, fairy-tale tone made me feel a little distant from the characters. I’m hoping Adaptation won’t do that.
In other things that are fun, a pie-chart breakdown of Voldemort’s soul. Also, things to ban instead of books (can I nominate “not believing graphic novels are real books”?).

Good luck with your pitch and enjoy the conference.
