Bookbits for August 23rd, 2011

Woot!  Two bits in two weeks.  Let’s hope it’s a continuing trend.  🙂

  • Here’s hope for all you NaNoNovelists: Erin Morgenstern landed a big contract for her debut The Night Circus after writing the first draft during NaNoWriMo 2005 – but she kept working at her idea, despite 30 rejection letters, and you can read her work next month!  Only 2 months left until this year’s novel-writing madness…  Also, I’ve heard rumours about a lovely upcoming ABC action involving NaNoWriMo novels (from writers here in the Netherlands) and our EBMs, but I’ll just give you this morsel of gossip and leave it at that until we have everything confirmed and double-checked and stuff.  How mean am I, eh?  ^^
