2. The Brown Bookshelf has a super-awesome project going this month called 28 Days Later, spotlighting twenty-eight YA, MG and picture book authors of color. There are great interviews and lots of book recommendations. If anyone knows of a similar project for the grownups please let us know.
3. We have been listening to a lot of Bon Jovi lately. Like, A LOT (what, and YOU never do anything cheesy? SHUT UP). So if you get a form rejection reading REJECTIONIST LIVES FOR THE FIGHT CAUSE THAT'S ALL SHE'S GOT or possibly SHOT THROUGH THE HEART AND YOU'RE TOO LATE YOU GIVE QUERIES A BAD NAME, it's from us.
4. Author-friend/fiancé(?) Ink has

6. NO REALLY, you got a PROBLEM with BON JOVI we can TAKE THIS OUTSIDE RIGHT NOW, PEOPLE. Someday maybe when our mom isn't reading we will tell you about the time we got into a barfight in Iowa over a Joy Division song.
