FRIDAY THINGS IS BACK!

I got out of the habit of doing these little weekly round-ups over the holidays, which was stupid. So I’m reviving it. BEHOLD, the things I liked this week.

“Take Your Time” by Sam Hunt

I’m in love with this song and have been for months now. In fact, it’s worth your time to give it a listen, sans video because the video will totally influence the way you think about the song if you haven’t heard it first. Anyhoodle, when the video came out, I jumped on it and it WAS NOT AT ALL what I was expecting. But I love it so much more—I’d never thought of the song meaning something that wasn’t strictly romantic, and the fact that Sam Hunt used it as a platform to talk about domestic violence makes me weepy in the best way. Sam Hunt, you’re the best.

Marvel + Welcome to Nightvale

This is making my life right now.

Barely Lethal

The first book I ever tried to write was basically this plot line. And now I’m mad at myself for never finishing it because if I had, I’d be Scrooge McDucking into piles of film licensing money. UGH.

George R.R. Martin is Skipping SDCC to Finally Finish Writing The Winds of Winter.

This news is the best news.

This Buzzfeed article is my life.

And it has introduced me to my new favorite gif: angry cartoon Lizzie McGuire.

I hope you’re all having a wonderful Friday!

Bookishly yours,

Time for #PitMad!: An Explanation and a Request

So, because I’m insane, I’m participating in something called Pitch Madness on Twitter today.

Yes, the day after I released Finding Slope. Hence, the insane thing.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with Pitch Madness, it’s a Twitter event for authors looking for literary agents. You pitch your manuscript in 140 characters using the hashtag “PitMad,” and if an agent likes your pitch, they favorite your tweet to let you know that they’d like for you to send them a full submission. This does not mean that you immediately have representation, just that an agent might be interested in representing you.

It’s entirely possible that I’ll get zero favorites. But I figure that I should try rather than not try, you know?

Which means that I am going to be SUPER ANNOYING on Twitter today. From 8AM to 8PM EST, I’ll be tweeting out my pitch a couple times an hour—please be kind and don’t unfollow me because of this. I’m just trying to get an agent, not purposefully spamming the hell out of you.

Additionally, unless you are a literary agent, please don’t favorite any of the pitch tweets—if you’d like to retweet them to show your support, that would be amazing. But favoriting the tweets if you’re not an agent will just complicate things in the long run and give me false hope. So, retweet! Retweet your heart out! But please don’t favorite.

And, for curious minds, I’m not pitching the Taking Flight series. It’s something totally separate and stand-alone and in the YA category. You can check out the pitch tweets for more info on that. :)

Okay, that’s it! The more you know and all that!

I hope everyone has a great Wednesday! If you haven’t picked up Finding Slope yet, REMEDY THAT! ;)
