Did you read Frankie's post on her amazing trip to NYC to see FIVE amazing YA authors? Publisher's Weekly did. (Thanks, Publisher's Weekly!)
the lovely Anissa commented with the link. We squeed. We high-fived. And then we squeed some more.
Frankie: I'm "an attendee"!
Donna: I'm the co-blogger and critique partner of "an attendee"!
Ahem. And then we settled in to watch the Stephenie Meyer interview on Oprah.
Anyway, because this link love brought us many new readers (Hi, new readers! We love you!), we decided to pass on the excellent karma by linking to some especially awesome posts we've seen around the blogosphere in recent days.
May we present the first ever First Novels Club Yearbook-Style Superlatives for the Most Linkable Posts...
