Author Chat with Micol TONIGHT

Don't forget to drop by the author chat with Bradford author Micol Ostow, hosted by The Page Flipper. Tonight at 8pm EST, here.

See you there!


  1. Thanks to everyone who came by to chat--I had a great time!

  2. I'm happy to offer Robin a hearty "I know exactly how you feel" after reading the interview. I've had the same problem with diaries. Somehow writing for no audience seems like such tremendous work. It took a while for me to pick up speed with my blog but now I post regularly and I love responding to other people's blogs. I don't even have a steady audience per se but there's a sense that somewhere out there someone's reading.

    I must read Skinned. The premise as Robin presents it suggests a very metaphysical (or physical) study of the issue of identity, a sort of 'what if' with huge philosophical implications. I'm no YA lit maven but I feel like many books in the genre deal with these issues on a more metaphorical or personal level (as in the case of 'Punk Rock' in which Ari is trying to figure out 'who he is.' Sounds like Robin is bringing a bit of Borges to the world of young adult reading which I think adults young and old will find fascinating!
