Signs of the Apocalypsies

I posted last time about the real treasure of writing conferences being the Writer Friends you make there. I didn’t realize one of the effects of getting The Call from an Editor would mean a similar prize! (I mean, I knew about advance checks, and seeing your book on shelves, etc.) But since I’ve announced the book deal, I’ve been invited to join several groups that exist to support writers who are approaching publication.  One of these groups is the Apocalypsies, a supportive group of writers whose debut MG/YA novels come out in 2012 — just in time for the end of the world.* Not only do they have the coolest name ever, they have some of the most amazing authors.

Today, one of them revealed her cover to the world. Check Leanna Hieber’s amazing new cover out here! I know, isn’t it gorgeous? I can’t wait to read her book. Doesn’t it sound deliciously dark and scary? I’m loving me some scary right now.

I’m sure you’ll see a lot more posts about my fellow Apocalypsies’ covers, contests, and release parties in the next few months. We have to celebrate for each other, right? Every week we all get a little closer to publication… or the End Times. Whichever, I imagine we’ll all need friends to help us get through it.

Write well this week! My round one edits are turned in, and I am reading YOUR work today! Yes, I am. 😉

* Although I saw on the news last night (and by news, I mean The Daily Show) the apocalypse is actually slated for this month, May 21st to be exact.
