Get over to the YA Authors Cafe right away. They've posted an interview with Cynthia Leitch Smith who has a new book out, Tantalize. A vampire story! With a restaurant!
If you get over to the YA Cafe in the next week, you can leave questions for Cynthia, who will answer as many as she can.
This is a sophisticated interview in which Cynthia discusses her research for the book. My favorite quote: "...to write in a literary tradition, you must know it. There's a difference between being derivative and making a contribution to a long conversation of books."
not your mother's bookclub also has an inteview with Cynthia. This is another good interview and has a fascinating section on revision.
