These are the same books from last week because PW had gotten its rights report up earlier than usual:
Sounds like Disney-Hyperion is very excited about Hook's Revenge. GR link here.
Want a sneak peak into Allegiant? Very, very short quote blurb here.
JK Rowling reveals which character in HP it was hardest for her to leave. AND I AGREE. I SO, SO AGREE. Oh, and here's another article talking about the difficulties for new authors via analysis of the Rowling-name-reveal incident.
Do you want to be a part of the YABC team? They're looking for editors!
Not a lot of links here this week, I'm afraid. Lots and lots of linkage in the discussions section though. And a lot of cover reveals. Mundie Mons posted about some recent book trailers, if you're interested - Teardrop, Just Like Fate, and The Fall of Five.
(*I am still trying to figure out PicMonkey. It wouldn't let me add another column onto this collage, so I had to skip some cover reveals and put series together. Any advice? Is there truly a limit to the # I can post?)
(Not pictured--I ran out of space)
Okay, either I missed a lot of cover reveals last week, or there's been a steady rise in cover reveals and all that self-pub / NA jazz. Or both, you know.
Also: if you're posting a cover reveal, please mark that it's NA or YA. I know that may sound stupid given that I could just read the synopses, but sometimes, especially with NA, I honestly don't know whether a book is still considered NA/YA. Plus, it makes things easier at a glance.

Honestly, I generally check there to see which posts I missed when scanning my Feedly, so you'll find a lot of the same material that you would have found here. Well, that's what I'm telling myself.
