Linky linky!  
Check out all the authors I’ve tagged in The Next Big Thing!

Erin Bow

Jeanette Cheney

Tanita Davis

Sarah Hilary (who has just won the Cheshire Prize for Literature!)

Rosanne Rivers

In the meantime, since not all these authors have their posts up yet, here are a couple more to check out:

Erin Johnson, who hasn’t tagged anyone herself. She has a nice rec for my Next Big Thing post on her own entry, and is a fellow SCBWI British Isles member, so I thought I’d tag her back. Erin is working on a doctorate at Oxford, researching masculinity in the works of the Brontës, and is also working on a young adult historical fantasy called Belladonna.

James Bow, who is Erin Bow’s husband and tagged in her blog post too - he’s working on a book called Icarus Down, YA sci-fi, inspired by a dream about a boy who tries to fly around the world on a kite. This is one I’m going to be reading!

I’ve also got an interview up with Katja Weinert on her blog at YA’s the Word, here, and I’ll be making a guest appearance on Saturday on the Booksmugglers to join in their Smugglivus celebration.

OH, SORRY! Sorry, it's coming. I've not forgotten, but a series of storms has kind of made home maintenance a priority - now that PG&E has fixed the transformer and we have power, back to it soon.

Thanks! (from Erin Johnson)
Thanks for the tag back! What a pleasant surprise!

And while I have the opportunity - I *loved* Code Name Verity, which blew my mind and made me bawl (in the best possible way). I really am looking forward to reading all about Rosie and so pleased that the release date isn't too far away.

Re: Thanks! (from Erin Johnson)
you're very welcome! Like you, I hesitated to join in the meme, mainly because I have so much else going on. But what's nice about the way it works is you can be flexible. Share the love. (It is true that I joined in later than you and by the time I started tagging people someone else had already tagged them!)

Thanks for your kind words about CNV, too. During one of their promotions to booksellers, the publisher was giving out little packets of tissues to go along with it!
