Right book, Right Time (not mine)

While there's nothing to report regarding my book (I'm still working on the MG while I wait to hear back on submissions) I seem to have read the right book at the right time.

I've heard great things about POISON STUDY and the other Study books by Maria V Snyder. The first one came out in 2005 so I realize I'm way behind on discovering these fabulous books, but in this case I'm glad. As soon I finished the first book earlier this month, I went to check out Maria's site for more info on her and her books, and got a fantastic surprise. Maria is part of a workshop for childrens/YA writing in a town less than an hour from here!

So on the second Saturday in September I'll be attending my very first writing workshop with one of my new favorite authors. I love when life works out this way. Serendipity, baby! I get to learn from the woman who created Valek? *fangirl giggle*

If you haven't read any of her books I highly recommend them. I'm half way through FIRE STUDY and ordered the companion books STORM GLASS and SEA GLASS. The third book, SPY GLASS, releases Sept 1st.
