Top 5 Reasons We Love Realm Lovejoy

5. Dude, her name is Realm Lovejoy. You know you want to see what she looks like...(adorable, for the record.)

4. She's represented by the fabulous Joanna Stampfel-Volpe. And it's like a universal law that we pretty much fall in love (or at least develop a raging girl crush) on anyone Joanna represents.

3. Her graphic novel Clan sounds amazing and gives us the sneaking suspicion that Realm has more talent in her pinky finger than the two of us have combined.

2. She's insanely nice, approachable and supportive of aspiring authors. She even has a special feature on her blog interviewing authors and creating a picture of their main characters. Very cool.

1. So you knew this was coming, Realm has posted an interview with us today and you guys have to go check it out so you can see the picture of Kate. It's AMAZING. Honestly, I feel like she somehow sucked our mental picture of Kate right out of our brains. It's that good.

Oh, and while you're over there, do yourself a favor and follow her. She also does a really great Book News post every week that you won't want to miss.

LOVE the image of Kate! How exciting for you guys to see her. Ohh you should get to make one of the two of you!

Great interview and thanks for sharing another fabulous blog to add to my daily read list. I'm going to check out her other posts now.

Love the image and loved the interview just as much. :) You two are fabulous, and I love how your posts are so quirky and fun.

Thanks for sharing!

Okay... I feel like such a dummy because I just figured out that you guys have the pitch and premise that I LOVED over on querytracker.net. Getting an email from your dead friend? So creepily awesome!

I was already going to read the crap out of your book when it gets published, but now I have to read it twice :D.

It is tres cool that you can ship the manuscript over to your sister when you get stuck!!

I didn't get to post yesterday, but I love Emily's voice in the previous post.....there's some attitude there, but,ooooohhhhhhh, the last line.....breaks the heart.

Keep up the great writing!

That was an awesome interview and great picture! Thanks for directing me there. I can't wait until some lucky publisher chooses your book! :)

Little Ms J said...

I love the image, interview was adorable, but what is going on with your new page? I feel like we've broken up. I love the quirky LiLa. BRING HER BACK!

Lisa and Laura said...

Damn, we changed it back. I was getting worried it was too hard for people to read? Just bored? Who knows...

Realm Lovejoy said...

Wow! Thanks for your insanely kind words, Lisa and Laura! I think I've developed a permablush. I'm so glad you both liked the drawing.

I love the cover art! It is so cool to see an interpretation of Kate in someone else's eyes. I guess it makes it all more real.

I met Realm at a book signing and the first thing I thought was what a kickass writer name she had. Or a superhero. I wonder if it was hard for her to decide which one to be...

Congrats on the interview!

T. Anne said...

Ha! I just queried her agent last week so I'm going to check her out.
