Man, it's been a bad year for authors, and it's still only March! We lost another of the greats on Saturday, as British fantasy author Diana Wynne Jones passed away after a two-year battle with cancer.
Wynne Jones published books that were equally loved by children, teens, and adults, and writers as varied as J.K. Rowling to Neil Gaiman claim her as one of their greatest influences.
This just in!
In a press release today from Random House Children's Books, it was announced that the final book of the wildly-popular Christopher Paolini "Inheritance" series will be released in November 2011! Wahoo!!
It is a sad day for fans of Mossflower Woods!

I just read this article from New York Books about author James Frey (known for getting busted for falsely claiming his bestselling book was a true story). It appears that he is recruiting struggling young writers to participate in a sweatshop-style writing project to try to churn out the next Twilight-style commercial success in teen literature. I must admit that I am a little shocked. I actually read the "I Am Number Four" book -- it was ok, not great, but clearly written with the goal of becoming a movie.
Am I dreaming? BOTH these events in the same place on the same day?! YES WAY, TED! These two awesome events are both taking place at this year's Sonoma County Book Festival!
