Beth Revis‘s debut novel, Across the Universe, is coming from Razorbill/Penguin on January 11, 2011. A former high-school English teacher, Beth can’t help but blog about writing, grammar, and publishing at Writing it Out. She is the founder of the new popular dystopian blog, the League of Extraordinary Writers and blows off steam by trying to come up with something witty in 140 characters or less, lusting after books on GoodReads, or wasting time on Facebook.

Author's Own Message ( ie when they talk about themselves :P)
That sounds all nice and professional, doesn’t it? *snerk* If you want to know the truth, I am nowhere near professional. I can’t even remember if I brushed my teeth this morning, and I know I didn’t brush my hair. I wasn’t always this way. Just last May, I was still a teacher—I taught World Literature to tenth graders in a rural high school—but since I started the Summer Break that Never Ends (i.e. since I became a full-time teacher), I’ve gotten into the nasty habit of sleeping late and stumbling around in made-up worlds for the better part of the day.
When I was a starry-eyed wee little Beth, I used to think that writers were these semi-mythical beings who lived in ivory towers and everything they wrote was golden.
I’m still waiting on my ivory tower. And my coffee.
These days, I know that I’ll probably never get my dream deb dress (much less an occasion to wear such a thing!), but life’s still good. I get to watch Firefly whenever I’m feeling uninspired, I have more books in my TBR shelf than I can honestly handle, and whenever I’m well and truly stuck, I have the pleasure of taking my dog (a big black Lab named Sirius) on long rambling walks to nowhere.
Who needs an ivory tower?
Well Beth I don't need an ivory but I need Across the Universe FAST! ( nah kidding, I got my copy already hehe , false alarm) and Sirius is that the name of Harry's godfather? I'm having a mind blank and can't decided whether Sirius was the godfather or the evil but not really one :) Anyway Beth, I thoroughly enjoyed learning more you! Hey Beth, make sure you come back tomorrow, maybe we can talk over coffee before we do the second part of your feature =)
