Look up!

Who doesn't love seeing the changing moods of the sky? Over at the UNDER THE NEVER SKY Facebook page, we're posting our favorite pictures of the sky. You really should check it out. They're amazing. And please share your own!

Here's one I took recently on my trip to New York. You really have to work to see the sky in Manhattan, but it's so worth it when you see all the gorgeous architecture against the big blue.

Update:  My mom and dad are in the countryside outside of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil right now, visiting family. I haven't seen them in weeks and weeks. I just emailed my dad asking him to contribute a photo to the Facebook page. He sent this:

And you know what? It's amazing to see what he's seeing. And even more amazing to think that it's the same sky, way over in Brazil. And that he was looking at it and thinking of me, and I now I'm looking at my sky thinking of him. Anyway. Very cool.

So how about it? Where are you? What does your sky look like? Would love to see it!

Story Masters & PW Galley Talk!

1. PW Galley Talk - This review completely made my day. Completely.

2. Story Masters! I wrote up a short thing over at YA Muses. It was epic. Highlight for me: I got to sign one of my ARCs to Chris Vogler, whom I'm a huge fan of. Chris Vogler, whose teachings I use to write the book I signed to him. omg it was awesome. I might have teared up.
