still 9.99!! Also, Rochester ROCKS!

Tuesday, May 17, 2011

First, the Rochester TBF? AMAZING. Seriously. It's like the rock star of teen book festivals. I took some video of the opening session, which was an all-author Q&A session but just realized I shot it UPSIDE DOWN. Typical.

After that, I got to do panels with THE Melissa de la Cruz (pic of me trying not to be too fangirl here) and, of course, the best part of all, talking to so many of YOU!

Also, Simon Pulse was awesome enough to let TBF sell copies of Between Here and Forever and it was so cool to see it--and even better still, to see people with it and excited to read it!

For those of you who weren't at Rochester, both Amazon and Barnes and Noble are still selling Between Here and Forever for 9.99! It's crazy cheap, and I LOVE it! (And I hope you all pre-order copies, but then, I expect you're not surprised by that :-)

Finally, before I get to the links--mailing list members, expect a message on Thursday with a special contest just for you!

Now, it's link time:
