My friend Sonya Sones, (Lovely person and fabulous poet/verse novelist) is judging a fun, teen writing contest. Entries will continue the story in her new book, What My Girlfriend Doesn't Know. Go check out all the rules and instructions. Here are the basic rules. To qualify you must state (truthfuly!!):

That you are the author of the entry
That you are 13 to 18 years of age on the date of entry
That the work(s) is/are original and unpublished
That you agree to the rules of the competition (details on the link above)
That you are entering only one work to the competition
All entries must be received by 11:59PM EST on April 3, 2009, the contest deadline. Limit one entry per person. Keep it short but sweet - no more than 1,500 words or ten pages

Have fun and good luck if you enter.....!!!

Hi Kathleen,
The link to the writing contest didn't work - could you give us that again? My daughter (a huge fan, as I am, of Skin Hunger - ooh, we can't wait for your next!) is an obsessive writer (well, aren't you all?) who might be interested.

Eva, the link is fixed. Sorry!!

Thanks so much for the kind words about Skin Hunger. The next book, Sacred Scars, will be out next summer. I am writing other things now, but will start the third one SOON...!

all best,

Thanks, Kathleen, for the fixed link and the upcoming Summer of Reading.
