5 years, Texas, and 1000...

Tuesday, May 01, 2012

Three things to talk about today:

First, Bloom is FIVE years old! I can't believe it, but it's true--Bloom first hit stores on April 24, 2007. (!)

Second, I'm going to the Austin Teen Book Festival!! It's going to be held on September 29th from 10 AM-5 PM at The Palmer Events Center in Austin. (And not only am I super excited about the festival--Neal Shusterman is the keynote speaker!--I'm also determined to squeeze in a good long shop at Book People, one of the best indies in the country!)

Finally, thanks to everyone who's responded about my attempt to reach 1000 pre-orders of Miracle -- once again, if you want to help me try and get there, you can pre-order the book from your local indie bookstore, Amazon, or Barnes and Noble. (The book is less than a dollar more than the pb will cost (on Amazon and B&N))

Also, it occurs to me that if I actually get 1000 pre-orders of Miracle, I totally owe you all something! I've been trying to think of stuff. I could

1. Show you the picture of Joe that inspired his character and share a scene I wrote about him but cut because I loved it, but felt it held up the story

2. Talk about PTSD and how I really was dumb enough to write a book about it while not knowing that I HAD it. (and how I'm dealing with it now)

3. Reveal the order of my books as they were written (let's put it this way--Something, Maybe was written BEFORE Living Dead Girl, although everyone thinks it was written after)

4. This is my husband's suggestion: YouTube video of me attempting to do a cartwheel. (Which I cannot do AT ALL and sometimes attempt thinking that surely I'll have somehow mastered it because I mean, COME ON! It's a cartwheel!)

So, what do you think? 1. 2. 3. or 4.--or any other suggestions?

First off, I can't believe it's been FIVE YEARS since I've read Bloom. I remember pre-ordering it, reading it and obv, loving it. I was 15 then. Crazy!

Anyway, I just wanted to say how excited I am that you're going to be at the ATBF! I missed you at TLA in '11, so I'm SO looking forward to September! Although, I should probably warn you/your poor hand that I'm going to bring my entire collection of your books. You know, just so you're prepared. :)
