Publishing Pulse 6/4/10

Congrats to QT Blog Author Elana Johnson!

We are over the moon for our very own Elana, who sold her debut novel, CONTROL ISSUES!
From Publisher's Marketplace: Elana Johnson's CONTROL ISSUES, set in a brainwashed society where those gifted with mind control best join the powers that be, but one rebel girl tries to beat them at their own game, to Anica Rissi at Simon Pulse, by Michelle Andelman at Lynn Franklin Associates (NA).
Congratulations, Elana!

Tips, News & Other Interesting Info from Around the 'Net

Casey McCormick had a nice Q & A with Steven Malk of Writers House on her blog, Literary Rambles.

An intern over at Bookends LLC discussed how she reads proposals.

Editorial Ass wrote an interesting article on "How to Throw an Awesome Book Launch."

If you write children's books up to and including YA, you should bookmark Editorial Anonymous' Blog. It's funny and brutally honest.

Author Susan DiMickele guest blogged on Rachelle Gardner's blog about how there's "No Good Time to Write."

Wishing everyone a fabulous weekend.
