~ For those of you who loved The Adoration of Jenna Fox and The Fox Inheritance by Mary E. Pearson, her short story, “The Rotten Beast,” which is told from Allys’ point of view, is available to read at Tor.com.
~ Lots of hoopla a couple of weeks ago over Friday Reads and disclosure. I know I’m late coming to the party, but here are a couple of good posts on the issue: My Friend Amy: Unsolicited Advice – When in Doubt, Disclose; The 3 R’s Blog: Full Disclosure – on blogging, books, and money; Caribousmom: Transparency and Why It Is Important. Wendy also posted a survey about paid content on book blogs, and has posted the results.
