Something has gone off with my LJ feed again, for the typepad blog at

I don't know why. I have no idea how to fix it, alas. If you want to read my handwriting analysis, info on the school challenge to Catherine Atkins's book, and other stuff -- please go over there!

Happy holidays!

8:39 pm - New people on the Friends List
Okay, the elockhar feed, which is my actual Typepad-hosted blog, is now running again, for those of you who were severely deprived of reading ridiculous memes, quizzes and musings on teen literature this past week or so.

New to my friends list:
larbalestier -- novelist Justine Larbalestier, author of Magic or Madness
sarazarr -- Sarah Zarr, author of the forthcoming Stories of a Girl
hornbookfeed -- Roger Sutton, inimitable editor of The Horn Book magazine
d_michiko_f -- Debbi Michiko Florence, writer and curator of a wonderful website with lots of author interviews, and
jbknowles -- Jo Knowles, YA novelist and organizer of the all-live-journal-finish-your-book-by-December project
cynthialord -- Cynthia Lord, author of Rules
cynthialeitich -- Cynthia Leitich Smith, author of Rain is Not My Indian Name and creator of a blog in which she interviews nearly everyone in children's and YA literature

So, as you can tell I am procrastinating writing DramaRama, which is my next book (not the next to come out, next to be written) and which is actually turning out pretty funny. It is about summer drama camp.
But I am fiddling around reading all the above very entertaining journals, instead of actually writing it.

Something seems to have gone squidgy with elockhar, my real blog's LJ syndication.
Posts about an article by Jon Sciezscka, the Quill Awards, and the National Book Award nominations have failed to go through -- and possibly others as well.

I think it has to do with this one post that I tried to date for a week from now and then tried to cancel, but which got syndicated. Hopefully things will go back to normal soon; I'm thinking maybe by Oct 21, which is the date of the strangely dated post.

In the meantime, you can visit the blog itself

11:39 pm - Andrew Auseon and YAARC on the Friends List
andrewauseon, the syndicated blog of Andrew Auseon, author of Funny Little Monkey, is now on my Friends list. Hurrah!

Also yaarc, which is the syndication of a site for YALSA members and other YA literature folks, where people can exchange copies of Advance Reader Copies. It's fun to read, even if you never sign up for a single book, because you get a glimpse of what's coming out next season.


P.S. My regular blog, as always is at
and syndicated at elockhar --
as opposed to this LJ, which is e_lockhart and only functions to allow me to comment and organize a Friends list
AND as opposed to a syndication that has mysteriously appeared for the main page of my website, which almost never changes, which is elockhart and completely not worth your while.

Sorry that's so confusing. elockhar is the one to bother with. That's what I'm saying.
