Over on Cynsations, there's a terrific guest blogger post about how authors can take advantage of the fact that kid-readers of tween and teen books want More, More, More from the books they read -- and they're looking online for it. The blog post is called, 'Kids don't read like they used to -- and that's a good thing,' written by Mari Mancusi. I recommend you check both links out.
And, if you haven't been reading Cynsations, go do so. And bookmark it. There are pages and pages of great writing and reading information there. Cynsations is the blog of Cynthia Leitich Smith, a great writer and teacher of writing at the Vermont College of Fine Arts MFA program in Writing for Children and Young Adults.
