LiLa's Rebel Yell

So you guys might have caught this last week, but just in case we wanted to post our guest blog for the YA Rebels, "What We Wish We Knew Before We Got a Book Deal." Most of the scenes were filmed on our epic NYC trip, so we had a lot of fun with this one. And, yeah, our amazing editor, Dan Ehrenhaft and the legendary Libba Bray both make cameos. Randomness abounds.



Now go subscribe to the YA Rebels You Tube Channel. These writers are AMAZING and their daily vlogs are not to be missed.

And please, please, please come back tomorrow to enter our EPIC 500 FOLLOWER CONTEST. We don't want to give anything away, but there will be arm wrestling involved. And t-shirts. And pearls. And maybe even a bike bell. Good. Times.

That video is freaking awesome. I've never been to NYC (just driven past it). Even without all the stock imagines morons like me go bananas over, I loved it. : ) I can't believe you got to meet Libba Bray! I read A Great and Terrible Beauty over Christmas a couple of years ago. It creeped me out in a good way. I'm so glad you shared your adventures on here! (And congrats on 500 followers - wowza!)

Shannon Whitney Messenger said...

Yeah, you guys make vlogging look SOOOOO much easier than it is. (We're NOT going to talk about the monstrosity I had to make) But I gladly bow to the masters of vlogging anf I will definitely be back tomorrow. Your contests are generally epic. :)

Lydia Kang said...

awesomely funny. Thanks guys!

Emily J. Griffin said...

Libba Bray -- "I just peed a little!" Classic Libba. CL.

Love the phrase "sister writer." It's like "sister friend," but better.

Marsha Sigman said...

There is some wise advice in that video.

Plus a Bike Bell??? You can count me in!

Tara McClendon said...

What a funny vlog. Good luck with your next contest. What fun.

Amy Jo Lavin said...

Hilarious video! I'll be back tomorrow for the contest. Definitely need the bike bell. :)

K. M. Walton said...

Good, funny stuff.

Your 500 Writer Contest is so trumping my measly "gonna try and get to 50 followers" contest! Ha. 500 followers! Jealous.

Icy Roses said...

LIBBA BRAYYYYY!

Also, you two.

:D Keep the videos coming!

Lori W. said...

Yes, please keep the vlogs coming! "She peed a little bit"! Hilarious. Libba Bray is awesome.

jessjordan said...

Libba Bray looks like the coolest person on the planet. I'm kidnapping her, pronto. (Totally kidding. Mostly ... hope this doesn't get me on any blacklists!)

And wow ... 500+ followers. You didn't get your friends and friends of your friends to set up a bunch of fake accounts and start following you, did you? Yeah, I didn't think so. (I mean, right?) So you're certainly making a name for yourselves!

(p.s. I hate you for the pinkberry. I heart pinkberry.)

Mariah Irvin said...

I want Libba Bray to swoon over me!

I'll definitely be back to the epic contest!

Tess said...

You guys keep getting cooler and cooler

My question is, were they purchased or did they fall off the back of a lorry (as we say in Brit Land)..?

Elana Johnson said...

Just so you know, you're a household name in my house. :) Great vlog!!!

Annette Lyon said...

Brilliance!

T. Anne said...

Ha! Brilliance abounds. And I would totally scream too and probably pee a little.

Angela said...

A bike bell? Hot damn!

Kimberley Griffiths Little said...

You girls are BRILLIANT! Way too funny - and that Libba is a total kick. I actually got to read the first two chapters of GOING BOVINE when she was first drafting it 4 years ago. (Yawns and checks fingernails . . . ) And it was called GOING BOVINE back then, no title change . . . :-)

AchingHope said...

This was amazing. It made me laugh.

Don't call this a comeback

So it’s been a minute. Or 10. Or truthfully more like 2,102,400. At least we think that’s how many minutes there are in 3 years, but let...
