Blogs

After years of blogging on the Blogger platform, Diana has made the switch to Tumblr. If you’re unfamiliar with the social-networking site, it’s a micro-blogging platform that allows you to delve deeper than Twitter (though she loves those 140 characters) while not giving your readers the expectation of a lengthy post (like, Blogger).

So please follow her on Tumblr (and Twitter, and Facebook, and Goodreads, and whatever else is developed by the time you read this). And enjoy the embedded Tumblr posts here. If you want to view her full Tumblr page, here’s the link:  http://dianarwallach.tumblr.com

      My 7 year old: Is that the biggest book ever written?! Omg!

      My husband: Are you reading the dictionary?

      To quote @natashabedingfield, “Staring at the blank page before you…”
      With final copyedits of END OF THE LIE done, today I start Chapter 1 of a new project. Outline is done, comp books have been read, now let’s DO THIS! #amwriting

      Copyedits for one book done yesterday, so plotting for the next book begins today! I’m thinking of writing a YA #thriller with a ghost POV. So I’m rereading #thelovelybones by Alice Sebold and #rememberme by Christopher Pike for background inspiration. Got any recommendations of great books with a ghost POV?

      (Please excuse Princess Mittens who now photobombs everything. It’s hard enough to get to stop diving at my ponytail while I type! 😂 🐱)

      Live action shot of the 2 screens and 3 reams of paper it takes to upload copyedits into an MS Word chart for my publisher.

      It’s hard not to dread this part of the process (think: page 22, line 16, add the word “the” before “cat”). But every time I start to complain, my husband quotes The Godfather 2: “This is the business you’ve chosen!”
      😂
      Honestly, despite how tedious it is, I am grateful every time I reach this step of the process, because it means I am still a working #author.

      That special time in the copy edit process when I need to compile a master draft of all the typos my copywriters have found and then transfer those changes into an MS Word chart. This is when you officially know your holiday vacation is over. But it also means that END OF THE LIE will be out in two months!! #anastasiaphoenix #amediting #edits

      I spent the last two Saturdays speaking at writers conferences, one at @penngse and one at @rosemontcollege. Being on a college campus in October, when the leaves are changing and the air is crisp, is like walking through a pumpkin patch. Universities excel at autumn.

      Look at these gems discovered at the used book store near my new house! 📚 I love collecting the original ‘80s and ‘90s #YA novels I read growing up. Adding these first edition @rl_stine1 Fear Street books, numbers 1-4 in the series, to my shelf of Christopher Pike and Sweet Valley High.
      On the shelf next to this, I also have a signed R.L. Stine from this year’s Thriller Awards!

      For the first time since I became an author (way back in the olden days of 2007), I finally have an office. I need more books to fill it (my old place was so small, I had to entirely switch to ebooks), and I have dreams of a rolling ladder like Belle in Beauty and the Beast. But it’s my new happy place. 📚 #sheshed

      Turned in a new #ya novel to my agent this week, finished critiquing countless essays for my @ctyjohnshopkins class, and have two straight weeks ahead of me with the kids home and no camp. This means I’m spending my last two hours of well deserved free time watching @jennyhan’s TO ALL THE BOYS I’VE LOVED BEFORE on #netflix.

      So, I didn’t win, but I had the best weekend ever and got to meet all of the authors whose (signed) books you see here—from Lee Child (the Jack Reacher movies with Tom Cruise) to RL Stine (my 90s book hero) to E. Lockhart and April Henry (whose books I love and who I’ve know virtually for years).

      Highlight moment—I eventually worked up the nerve to approach George R. R. Martin at the cocktail party (see picture) and when I shook his hand, he looked at my name badge and said, “You were nominated tonight, right?”

      So for 30 seconds, George RR Martin knew my name in the world. I may put that on my tombstone.
