Maggie Stiefvater, Author

Maggie Stiefvater writes young adult novels, which include Shiver, Linger, Forever, Lament, and Ballad. Unusual and riveting would be two words that only begin to describe her books. I’m looking forward to reading her recently released The Scorpio Races.

Writing process always fascinates me. I love to read about how other writers write. There are many great posts on her blog about Maggie’s process. Follow her label “How I Write” to locate some of them. She uses helpful examples that illustrate her points and she fills her blog with glimpses of her personal style.

GalleyCat, a feature of the Media Bistro organization, offers the latest information on publishing deals, books, writing resources, and jobs in publishing. It lives up to the promise in its subtitle: The First Word on the Book Publishing Industry. Whether it’s a video tour of a Scholastic headquarters, the scoop on who is acquiring whom, or info on a big deal just made by Amazon, you’ll find the latest and possibly greatest at GalleyCat. I love the Writer Resources page where you can get motivated, explore a new writers’ service, or find a link to a new writing technique.
