Another "DUH" Moment


Meet stupid response girl right here.  Yep. That's me. *waves*

Here's my latest DUH moment. 


My manuscript has been with publishers since April.  And I'm super impatient to have news -- positive or negative.  I just want things to move so I can organize my life and state of mind accordingly.   So, when my agent told me my novel was still out with several publishers, I freaked.  In my mind I was going,  Is this a good sign?  A bad one?  Is there anything I can do to make this go faster?  This is killing me!  Please help!  

Instead, I responded: Why are they so slow? Do they have a lot to read?

Um. Yeah, Katie.  They're editors at publishing houses.  If they don't have a lot to read something is really wrong.

No major damage done apart from a major mental eye roll on the part of my agent.  And a nice little facepalm to myself.  Again.

What's your latest DUH moment?

Celestial Anthology

Woot Woot!  I've been waiting to share this news with you.  I was lucky enough to get an invitation to be a part of a short story anthology with nine other YA authors.  We had a common theme -- a comet -- and then were let loose to write a story about it.  What came out is ten completely different stories to entertain and make you think.

Right now it's an e-book, but in a couple weeks the paperback will be out if you have to have a hard copy.  Check it out and tell your friends! http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00NCN1O3E
