Chandeliers and Challenges, Elevator Pitches and French Kisses

I wish I could tell you that this beautiful chandelier was purchased with money from a book deal but, alas, it was a 19th anniversary present for my husband.  I WAY LOVE art glass and can't wait for this pretty to go into my front hall.

I'll ramble now from chandeliers to another awesome CH word: CHALLENGE.  As a metaphor, a plot element, and a lens through which to analyze YA fiction, I'm exploring the term at today's Audition blog tour stop at the ever-awesome YA BLISS.  The post also involves ELEVATOR PITCHES and FRENCH KISSES (see, I'm very rhymey after a glass of wine and a night with only 3 hours of sleep!).  Now, aren't you curious?  And, make sure you check out Sabrina's awesome YA HISTORICAL FICTION CHALLENGE, too!

thank you so much for including my blog on your tour! And for writing such an awesome book! We definitely need more YA in verse.
Also, that Chandelier is gorgeous! :)

Thanks for having me, Sabrina. And, agreed, the chandelier is YUM :)
