Paula has a fantastic blog and she has a running series called "Writer Spotlight" where she features a currently unpublished author and helps people get to know them and their novels. The interview was a fun process for me. Please check it out, leave a comment, peruse her blog!
Also, there's a fantastic Pitch Contest happening at YATopia.
Submit a 2 sentence pitch and if you can snag agent Mandy Hubbard's interest, she'll request a full MS!
I do apologize for this belated announcement. I only recently heard of it myself!
