Sharing the Writing Love with Alison Green Myers

Hi everyone! If you've been hopping around the blogosphere and came across my site, you might have noticed some changes. First, the new name: INK Sisters Write. Then, the new address: http://inksisterswrite.blogspot.com. Then the disappearance of some pages and the addition of some new pages. Well folks, I'm not always the most regular blogger--shocking I know, but I love the blog and have a lot of fun working on posts, but I needed to find a way to make blogging even MORE fun. The solution was simple: Ask my Ink Sister, Alison Green Myers, to join me and guess what?!?! She agreed to become my online partner in crime. 





THE TRUE LOVE STORY WITHOUT ALL THE MUSHY GUSHY DETAILS:
Alison and I met at the New York SCBWI Conference in 2012, and we've been together ever since. We call it Writer Love at First Sight, and that's what we plan to do on the blog: share the writing love with each other and all of you!

So without going total backstory on you, here are the TOP 4 ALISON GREEN MYERS FACTOIDS:

1. Alison writes young adult, the scarier the better. 
2. She LOVES books--from YA to Adult to Middle Grade to Picture Books, so you can expect some thought provoking book reviews. 
3. She's funny. I'm talking really funny, like way funnier than me.
4. She loves chocolate. Thankfully, she prefers milk chocolate, so I don't have to share.

Say Hi to Alison and stay tuned for future posts!

Write on,

The Querying Writer: Part II

Dear Kim,


Remember that letter I sent you way back in October? (You remember October-- back when all things seemed possible.) 





The letter, COMP TITLES and THE QUERYING WRITER, shared details from our Novel Nuts & Bolts class with Empire Literary Agent Carrie Howland. (I may have referred to her as "agent-extraordinaire" in another post.)

Though today's post will be my third about Carrie, it is titled "Part II" because my querying journey seems sequel worthy.







I started looking for an agent soon after you and I met at the NYC SCBWI conference in 2012. I had nice feedback from an agent at a conference and sent him my work. His response was kind (which I've found most responses from agents to be.) But my writing wasn’t ready. The novel he saw was the first I’d ever finished. I wasn't ready.

I swallowed that little voice that said, SEND! SEND! SEND! for two more years until I entered #PitchWars-- Brenda Drake’s crash course in pitching. In the years between t…

Cover Reveal: The Perfect Trip by Stacy Barnett Mozer

Dear Alison,

Thank you for my letter on Friday. I was teaching and didn't get to read it until late Friday night, but oh the memories of our time at the Writing Barn...so wonderful, so peaceful, so inspiring. The retreat was a much needed break from the insane fall I've had, and though we worked our butts off, it was a different kind of work, a good kind of work, my favorite kind of work, and sharing that work with you and Donna? Yeah, that was awesome. I, too, was really able to dig into my WIP and find Gigi's voice. She's so different from Starr and with so much prep work on Starr Lost (Book Two) and Starr Gone (Book Three), I had a hard time recapturing Gigi's voice, but Texas changed all that. Her 'in your face' style sets the tone for the entire young adult urban fantasy series, and I can't get her defiant nature out of my head. (People, you've been warned.)

Alison, you and I get to share the writing love every Monday and Thursday. Today, I ge…

BOOK REVIEW: Starr Fall & BOOK RELEASE: Once & Forever

Dear Alison,

Goodbye January, Hello February! Last week, I let everyone peak in my drawers.  Today, I'm opening my inbox. Well, not literally. You DO NOT want to see my inbox--though I do try to keep all the accounts very tidy--sometimes the emails get a bit, what's the word I'm looking for? Expansive. My favorite emails are from fans. I LOVE them. They make me all warm and fuzzy. Seriously, touch my arm...

See? Warm and Fuzzy. Oh, wait those are my doggies;)

While, I ADORE the fan mail (I DO, I REALLY DO) I would LOVE them even more if they were added as a review to AMAZON and GOODREADS. For instance, look at some of these reviews:

This review is from: Starr Fall: Book One of the Starr Fall Series (Kindle Edition) Purchased this book for my 14 year old daughter who is NOT a fan of reading for pleasure or at all for that matter. Well, the book immediately grabbed her attention. In her words..."I can't put this book down. I ne…
