Start with Failure: The Advice No Aspiring Writer Ever Wants to Hear

I was 23-years-old when I made my first feature film. It took me a year to write the script, six months to raise the money, two weeks to shoot it, and three months of editing. The following two years were spent trying to find a distributor and crying myself to sleep each night I failed to do so…  Check out the full story over at the Adventures in YA & Children’s Publishing blog.

“Waiting On” Wednesday – CATCHING JORDAN by Miranda Kenneally

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week’s pre-publication “can’t-wait-to-read” selection is:
Catching Jordan

Publication Date:  December 1, 2011

Synopsis (from Goodreads)

What girl doesn’t want to be surrounded by gorgeous jocks day in and day out? Jordan Woods isn’t just surrounded by hot guys, though-she leads them as the captain and quarterback of her high school football team. They all see her as one of the guys, and that’s just fine. As long as she gets her athletic scholarship to a powerhouse university. But now there’s a new guy in town who threatens her starting position… suddenly she’s hoping he’ll see her as more than just a teammate.

————————————-

Love the concept of a girl on the football team!  Good thing I won’t have to wait too long for this one.  What’s your “waiting on” pick this week?
