  • One A Day Y.A.

    I read this story and my heart hurt and my stomach got those little butterflies of discovery and I loved everything about it. I want more books like this one. I want more short stories like this one. Beautiful and anything but simple, this story touched me and hit all the right notes.

    Effie at the Wedding is not just for the YA crowd, but also for anyone who has ever wallowed in self-pity, and then had to discover a reason to get off the pot.”

    “Even for those writers, editors, and publishing professionals that have been in the biz for years, understanding all of the jargon of the industry can be a bit of a challenge. For those professionals who are just starting their careers, following a conversation or email pertaining to a publishing deal, editing contract, or even the materials required to put together a book proposal can seem like trying to decipher a foreign language…Truth be told, it’s a slow learning process, but with the help of Tracy Marchini’s new reference book you can speed the process up a bit.

    Pub Speak: A Writer’s Dictionary of Publishing Terms is a veritable catalogue of acronyms, technical words, and even common awards and associations that every writer, editor, publisher, and publicist of the English language should know.”

    “The whole mystery of who the sender of the hot tickets is was well done. Just as Juliet’s clues and evidence kept her changing who she thought it was, the reader is kept uncertain as well.”

    “If you are having a down day and need a pick me up, take a few minutes and read Effie at the Wedding.”
