Inspiration. We could use some around here. Who couldn't on a muggy Friday afternoon?
Go here for a lovely, uplifting and intriguing post by Kate Constable about seven things that have inspired her writing.

Go here for the new OK Go video clip that everyone is talking about. It's really and truly worth it.
Go here for an interesting comparison of US and UK book covers, which might well inspire us to post some more of our international editions soon.
