Cover Work and Finishing Up First Look-Over

Told ya I'd be back this time!

First off, I'm almost done looking over Rich's edited version of TSA. I only have the epilogue to finish as of now, and soon I'll send it back to him so he can look at my changes. And this will continue until we're both happy with the draft.

Secondly, I got an email from one of my co-editors Marie, asking about the cover and if I had any ideas and saying she had a few ideas of her own. I sent a reply saying I'd email her a copy of my cover idea while asking for her ideas so we could maybe combine the two in a way. Doesn't sound big, but this is excellent progress! And when we do get some final images, I might post them here and all you readers can vote for your favorite. :)

Take it away, Weekly (Dis)Likes!

Likes 1: ParaNorman. I've wanted to see this since I first saw the previews. The stop-animation it uses looks absolutely AMAZING. I should know, considering I've watched all the 'Behind-the-Scenes' videos on YouTube. Storyline doesn't seem bad either. Yet the local newspaper only gave it two stars. Don't care. Still wanna see it. The paper was wrong about Coraline (which I also enjoyed); surely they're wrong about ParaNorman.

Likes 2: This week I learned about a new emerging genre in books and writing. It's called New Adult. Basically its books for college-aged readers and people in their twenties, sort of a bridge between teenaged Young Adult and regular Adult. Think of it as Young Adult, but grown up. I'm definitely going to be looking into this genre, because I myself have been stuck as to what to read: Young Adult seems too immature while Adult sounds too mature. This will be a nice compromise. And I already have ordered a couple of New Adult books. Can't wait to read them.

Finally, new section! Nothing grand, I'm just going to start posting a weekly quote here. So to begin, here's a personal favorite of mine.
