If you're interested in getting a free note card of Stealing Heaven
or Perfect You
, getting an autographed bookplate, joining my mailing list, finding out how many books I have out and when the next ones will be in stores, learning more about where I got the ideas for each of my books, and when the book that's excerpted at the end of Perfect You is going to be out, click here
Also, congrats to the winners of my latest mailing list contest: Rylie, Katlins, Brianna, Brooke, Hannah, Renee, Christina, Sarah, Ashley, and Jen
While I was away, I did guest blogs about writing over at Teen Book Review
and Teen Troves
--and many thanks to Teen Book Review and Teen Troves for asking me to write and share something with their readers!
And finally, Book Expo America
, which is the reason why I've been gone so long.
In short, it was AMAZING. The thrill of signing books in the autographing area, where just two years ago I was waiting in line and never EVER thought I'd be on of the people behind the tables...WOW. Not to mention driving across the country, which--although exhausting--was plenty wonderful too.
Here are a few pics from Texas
, and New Mexico
. I also include one of my dog
, who became quite the seasoned traveler (as you can see!) and one of myself, taken on the very last day
. I think the bags under my eyes ARE my whole face.
Also, here's a look at the cover of Living Dead Girl--which was on display
on the wall of the S&S booth
(!!!) --and one of me at the booth signing
I did on Sunday, with many thanks to everyone who took the time to stop by on the last day of BEA.
Oh! And I got to meet Melissa de la Cruz
who is, in a word, FANTASTIC. Plus I got her to sign my copy of Fresh Off the Boat
, which, if you haven't read it, you totally should. Right now. Seriously.
How have things been for you?
