Dispatches from the Decatur Book Festival
Posted by PWxyz
The Decatur Book Festival took place on Labor Day Weekend. If you missed the action, I’d recommend reading the coverage on PWxyz, the news blog of Publisher’s Weekly. Their posts include a run-down of Jonathan Franzen’s keynote speech; a summary of Orange Prize-winning author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s talk on storytelling; and notes from talks by fantasy authors Cassandra Clare and Lev Grossman.

Julia Glass: The Not Quite Yes
Posted by Meg Waite Clayton
Meg Waite Clayton, author of The Wednesday Sisters, posted a link to a guest post by Julia Glass in the comments of our Monday Contest this week, a giveaway of Glass’s The Widower’s Tale. Since we’ve gotten so many thoughtful responses to our contest, I thought you all would appreciate the post, in which Glass writes about her long road to publishing Three Junes and the encouragement she felt from every “Not Quite Yes” she got from magazine editors. If you have dreams of publishing some day, this post is worth a read.
