Week in Short

Song of the Week: If Heaven Wasn't So Far Away by Justin Moore

Must Read:
When it's okay to quit
Choosing the wrong agent
Sex vs relationships in YA -- This is a definite must-read for any YA reader or writer

News:
Biggest news of the week came from J.K. Rowling when her street view search led to Pottermore. The website links to a Youtube page counting down the days until J.K. Rowling's announcement. What does it all mean? Your guess is as good as mine! Could the long hoped for confirmation of more books be in the near future? Only five days to go until we find out!

The sequel to Veronica Roth's Divergent has a title! And I LOVE it!
