Today is the book birthday for @leahclifford 's A TOUCH MORBID and @oliverbooks PANDEMONIUM. Lauren Oliver has been tweeting lines from her book with the #tweetdeleria hashtag and we have to say it's an excellent way to create buzz. What better advertising than the writing, y'know?

If you're a writer, this is some good advice by Maggie Stiefvater:

One event took over the twitterverse for six hours Sunday night...The Oscars (and Angelina Jolie's leg) Although editor Alvina Ling's #fakelivetweeting was far more interesting:


Also trendy news this week...JK Rowling is penning an OA (Old Adult) book:


The topic of Lent keeps coming up:


Okay, too much twitter may suck your life away (like The Machine in The Princess Bride), but there's always good stuff to be found, connections to be made:


And as for this tweet by agent Amy Boggs...no comment :)

Aprilynne Pike was doing that to celebrate her latest release too. She let Tweeples give her page numbers and she picked the lines. I thought that was cool.

I would TOTALLY be down with Fey and Poehler as hosts next year. Or Chris Rock. Or Jason Segel (because I LOVE HIM).

Love all the great writing advice!
