Few random things I'd like to pass along:


1. Elana Johnson sold her amazing-sounding book CONTROL ISSUES!!! Yay Elana and welcome to The Elevensies!



2. Elana and several other Elevensie members have formed a fantastic new blog for dystopian fans The League of Extraordinary Writers.





3. A few seriously amazing books I've just finished reading and highly recommend:
Pretties by Scott Westerfeld
I Am The Messenger by Markus Zusak
The Dust of 100 Dogs by A.S.King

I admire your 'stick-to-it-ive-ness" and resilience. I know writing requires both in order to be successful.
