Kerri Majors Kicks Out The Jams!

Kerri Majors This Is Not A Writing ManualToday’s the official publication day of THIS IS NOT A WRITING MANUAL, and the celebration is already underway! Look after the jump to read all about it!Kerri’s first stop was the YA Highway, where she talks about writing and weighs in on that age-old debate of caffeine-craving authors everywhere: coffee or tea?

Then Kerri wrote a guest post on WORD for Teens saying that it is possible to be too trendy — at least when it comes to writing! Of her attempt at writing a paranormal YA novel, she says:

I figured I had it made: I was writing a story I really believed in, AND I would be surfing a trend wave safely to the beach. 

When I’d banged out a good enough draft, I gave it to another YA writer friend for comments, and I’ll never forget what she said. She said: “It’s so good. It’s so good I can’t believe no one hasn’t written it yet.”

Turns out someone had. And just as I started looking for an agent for the novel, I saw that it was debuting on The New York Times bestseller list.
