Guest Blogging for Launch Day
Tomorrow is the launch day for Rogue, and I’ve been busy writing guest blog posts and answering interview questions to get the word out. Last week, Janet Fox featured my post on humor in novels with character who have disabilities on her blog, Through the Wardrobe: http://kidswriterjfox.blogspot.com/2013/05/guest-post-by-lyn-miller-lachmann-whats.html.
Nancy Bo Flood interviewed me as part of her review of Rogue for The Pirate Tree a couple of weeks ago: http://www.thepiratetree.com/2013/04/25/rogue/
The Albany Times-Union did a wonderful piece on Rogue that incorporated an interview with me (and I refer to one of the questions in my Through the Wardrobe guest post) last Sunday, just in time for my launch book signing later this week: http://www.timesunion.com/living/article/Echoes-of-real-life-4503381.php
Today is the first part of a two-part interview on El Space, a wonderful new blog about books and the writing life: http://lmarie7b.wordpress.com/2013/05/15/check-this-out-rogue-part-1/
And here’s the second: http://lmarie7b.wordpress.com/2013/05/16/check-this-out-rogue-part-2/
The cool kids of Diversity in YA posted my essay on how I, as a person with Asperger’s syndrome, learns languages. It’s no secret to anyone who reads this blog that I am obsessed with Portugal and the Portuguese language. http://diversityinya.tumblr.com/post/50579231721/pictures-patterns-words-by-lyn-miller-lachmann
I will be updating this page with one more guest blog post that will be running for launch day–the one for Canadian blogger and Vermont College of Fine Arts schoolmate Melanie Fishbane, in which I talk about what I learned about creating likable characters from my time at VCFA. And here it is: http://melaniefishbane.wordpress.com/2013/05/16/guest-post-lyn-miller-lachmann/
After the book events this weekend, I promise to report on the anti-bullying workshop I attended last week, which I’ll probably incorporate into another guest blog post by the end of this month.
