So, in case you missed it, my new two books were revealed today on Publishers Weekly. JUST ONE DAY, followed by JUST ONE YEAR. Here’s a slightly more specific version  of the PW announcement. Can you fall in love in just one day? Can you become a new person? How about in just one year? […]

July 30th, 2011

Behold, members of TEAM ADAM, the bounty of offerings for our official button! I was inundated with more than 40 button designs for the contest, so many designs that those of you who sent in multiple sumbissions, I had to pick one, lest we not get overloaded.

my daughter—super agent

June 14th, 2011

So, generally, I try to keep pretty mellow about things like bestseller lists and book sales. To me what ultimately matters is that my books are selling. And that is not even because I’m panting for my piece of the sales. By the time I actually see those royalties, my kids will be in college. […]

the holly goldberg sloan hour

June 13th, 2011

I want to tell you guys about an amazing author—Holly Goldberg Sloan—and her amazing new book—I’LL BE THERE—but before I do I want to talk about blurbing. I’ve blogged about this before, the insidery nature of blurbing, my blurb policy In a nutshell: I only blurb debuts. I’m incredibly picky about what I will blurb. […]

that green-eyed fucker

June 2nd, 2011

I’m always a day behind the news—there was a tornado WHERE last night? There was a big jealousy blog piece bounding around the writ-o-sphere this past week? Oh. I was on the farm trip with the kids. But I’m on it today. And I’ve read Sugar’s post on The Rumpus, about an aspiring author bravely […]

the nova hour (and no, not the pbs show)

May 31st, 2011

  I knew that Nova Ren Suma’s debut YA novel IMAGINARY GIRLS was something special before I ever read a word of it. I’m not one to judge books by their covers. Really, I’m not. I know all the decisions that go into covers and all the inappropriately jacketed books that hide really quality literary […]

battle cry for the mr. saxons!

May 16th, 2011

So, I finally watched that documentary Waiting for Superman, you know the one that was much buzzed about last year, the one that basically says that public education is going to hell in a hand basket? And maybe it’s because I appreciate a bit of nuance, be it in my books, my documentary films, or […]

life viewed through whiskers

March 30th, 2011

I thought thought the big milestone event of this week would be the new book’s release on Tuesday. But then my cat Scottie stopped eating. He’s 17. He has advanced kidney disease. The vet yesterday said that barring major intervention, he has days left. With intervention, he has weeks. Given that I think it’s kind […]

The Jandy Hour

March 23rd, 2011

We interrupt the regularly scheduled program to bring you: The Jandy Hour Featuring Jandy Nelson   If you are a frequent or loyal or just longtime reader of this blog, you might remember, oh, a year and a half ago I started SWOONING about a book I’d had the opportunity to read an advanced copy […]
