Wow! You are subbing 6 PBs, a YA and a non-fiction book? You are awesome! I'd love to read one of your PB manuscripts some time.

I need to keep subbing them - I tend to only focus on the YA. Ive only subbed the other stuff to one or two places and then I forget :(

The Girls' Guide to Cyberspace? I'm reading this backwards (obviously), so this is the first I've heard of it. I'm intrigued, though... please say you haven't abandoned it?
