Just a quick update to let you know of a few more Next Big Thing Posts from various writers.

Jessica Wynne Reisman:

2. Where did the idea come from for the book?

Rebecca Schwarz:

1. What is the title of your work in progress?
The Iron Tongue of Midnight (from A Midsummer Night’s Dream) is a potential title. For now Inside Out is the working title.
5. What is a one-sentence synopsis of the book?
