Get Ready for Fun - Maven Style!

Join us next week (July 14-18) as we celebrate (no, not Bastille Day) our first anniversary! Can you believe we've been at this for a year? Neither can we. And we're so, so thankful for your company. Let's hear it for our MaveFaves!

Next week's shenanigans are a Q&A with some of our favorite authors. Each day bears a new question with all sorts of fascinating answers. Plus, there's a prize question - correctly guess which author said what and you're entered in a drawing for a fabulous prize! And what is that prize, you ask? Well, there will be two prizes each day: one for a writer and one for a reader. Please indicate which one you are or "either." Reader prizes are books (natch!) and writer prizes are a Maven critique of your query letter (ooh, aah).

So get ready to party, jamboree style of course. Interestingly, we Mavens didn't answer our own questions. How about today you pose any question you want and we'll do our best to answer! Fire away!

A question:

I noticed this book mentioned on

Your Novel Proposal: From Creation to Contract
by Blythe Camenson and Marshall J. Cook

It was published in 1999. I haven't been able to find it locally. Has any Maven read it? If so, how would you rate it?

Congrats on your 1st anniversary. That's paper right? How apropos!

How do you manage to be so disciplined in getting the writing done and out there? That's the biggest challenge for me. I know it's a balance act, so if you can share how to juggle writing, critiquing, three kids (high maintenance) , managing a business and a husband (relatively low maintenance)?

Share away! Oh, and btw, love your updated photos! You all so different!
