Cupcakes and Cover Wars

Members of Toorak College Book Club enjoyed cupcakes while meeting with prominent YA authors, Simmone Howell and Justine Larbalestier, at the State Library on Sunday afternoon.  Both authors spoke about their new titles and the vagaries of the publishing world including title wars and cover wars.   Justine has a terrific blog where budding writers and avid readers can find help with the writing process as well as strategies for getting your work published and how to deal with the inevitable rejection letter. 

Other well known YA authors in the audience included Kirsty Murray (Children of the Wind series), Scott Westerfeld (Uglies series) and Melina Marchetta (Finnikin of the Rock). 

Look out for Simmone Howell’s new book called ‘Everything Beautiful’ and Justine’s novel, hot off the press, titled ‘ How to Ditch Your Fairy’.  Both are available from the senior library and promise to be favourites with girls especially.  To find out more about these authors and others, come to Book Club, in the library, every Thursday at lunchtime.
