What’s it like to be a debut novelist? No, but really, what’s it really like? With the writing, and the novel-ing, and the editing, and the publishing, and the feelings. Probably there are a lot of feelings, right?
For the next few weeks, debut novelist Ted “thompsonted" Thompson will answer your questions! Ask him about writing, about publishing, about feelings—all of it. Use our Ask Box to send in your questions. Do it! It’ll be fun!

I feel like Ted can handle me at my nosiest.

Clementine is flawless.

"By the time she was in the 4th grade Edan was praised and singled out for her writing. I told her years ago to put me down for 10,000 copies of her first novel. Now, I have uttered many bon mots and advice over the years, which Edan doesn’t remember. However, this promise (along with: “Madonna is a flash in the pan”) she recalls as if it were yesterday. I must keep my word and sell, sell, sell."

California | Vroman’s Bookstore

You might wanna order your copy of Edan Lepucki’s California from her dad, since he’s on the hook for 10,000 copies.

A heartwarming reminder never to promise your children ANYTHING.

*sneeks up to all of the publishing tumblrs* *whispers* ~BEA~

Should we all wear some secret code thing so we know who we are without giving it away to everyone else?  Everyone on tumblr can keep a secret, right?

I’ve been considering attaching a subtle blue t to my badge and seeing who asks me about it.

I’m for some subtle communication.

I’m more in favor of some subtle happy hour-ing. 

Wait wait! Should I make those stick-on badge ribbons like we had at ALA? What should they say? “I AnonyTumbl”?
